Art Briles Was Hired By The Hamilton Tiger-Cats Of The CFL...Annnd Promptly Canned Less Than 12 Hours Later
Let that ten hour tenure serve as a lesson to the Hamilton Tiger-Cats and any other football team that considers hiring a disgraced coach that enabled a criminal culture of violence, rape, and general lawlessness on a university campus. That lesson is: If you're too corrupt for college football in the South then you are literally too corrupt for any type of employment in sports.
I don't know why a CFL team thought that a name that has become synonymous with widespread sexual misconduct would be a wise addition to the club. If the question is "how did a semi-professional organization find themselves blindsided by the type of unbearable backlash one should OBVIOUSLY expect after hiring Satan himself?" then your guess at an answer is as good as mine.
That said, hopefully the instant tidal wave of criticism that ended Art Briles' tenure in Hamilton before the ink even dried on a contract that might as well have been a deal with the devil will turn off other moronic franchises from overlooking a resume of group rape just to add a little more firepower to their offense. I can't definitively say we will never see Art Briles on another sideline, because...well...I'm incapable of erasing the unforgivable aspects of sports' history that make the following tweet possible. I can, however, say it's a lot less likely after a team (unfortunately not all-that-shockingly) said "well, maybe..." and was met with a collective "ARE YOU OUT OF YOUR FUCKING MIND?!?".
