Houston Baptist hires Baylor assistant to join football staff

The Baylor coaching staff is losing Cedric Whitaker to Houston Baptist where he's the new defensive backs coach.

Whitaker has worked on Matt Rhule's staff the past two seasons as a graduate assistant defensive coach and now makes the jump to a full time coaching position at Houston Baptist.

Whitaker was at Texas Lutheran for three years prior to his stint at Baylor with the Bears. He served several roles during that three year stop before joining the Bears.
