AUSTIN, Texas -- Art Briles made it official Friday: He's staying at Baylor.

In a statement released by the school, Briles announced he intends to remain with the Baylor program he led to a Big 12 championship in 2013.

"I have no desire to pursue other coaching positions," Briles said in the news release. "As I've said many times, I am both humbled and honored to be the head coach at Baylor University, and believe we have something special going here.

"I look forward to leading the Bears onto the field next fall at McLane Stadium and defending our Big 12 championship that our players and coaches worked so hard to win this season."

Briles was a candidate for the Texas head coaching job, and The Austin American-Statesmen reported this week that Briles would accept the position if offered.
