The league's post on their website says "Art Briles will no longer be joining the Hamilton Tiger-Cats as a coach. We came to this decision this evening following a lengthy discussion between the league and the Hamilton organization. We wish Mr. Briles all the best in his future endeavours."
This would have been the first job for Art Briles since his firing at Baylor in May 2016. He has worked as a consultant, both in the NFL and at the college level. Most recently he consulted for Florida Atlantic University where his son Kendall is the offensive coordinator.
Briles led some of the best Baylor teams to even play in Waco, but his tenure ended in May of last year when the Board of Regents fired Briles.
