KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Kendal Briles has emerged as a candidate in Tennessee's search for an offensive coordinator, in place of Tyson Helton, who left for Western Kentucky's head coaching job.
Briles is currently the offensive coordinator at Houston, but that's his third job in as many seasons.
Briles, in his one season with the Cougars (2018) led the team to a top-10 ranking in the country, in both yards/game and points/game.
In 2017, he was the offensive coordinator at Florida Atlantic, where the Owls were also top-10 in both the aforementioned categories under Briles' leadership.
In 2015 and 2016, he coached the offense at Baylor.
The Bears accounted for more yards and more points (per game) than any other team in the country in 2015.
They were still top-10 in 2016, when it came to yards/game, but took a small step back to 35th nationally, in points/game.
