USA Today remains on the case of soon to be embattled Baylor Head Football Coach Art Briles. In a press conference, Briles denied any knowledge of the trouble and violent past of Sam Ukwuachu who was dismissed from the Boise State program after attacking his girlfriend. Washington Coach Chris Petersen calls Briles out on that one. According to Petersen, he personally called Briles to inform him about the potential danger with Ukwuachu.
Washington head coach Chris Petersen issued a statement Friday saying that he informed Baylor’s Art Briles about why defensive end Sam Ukwuachu was dismissed at Boise State.
“After Sam Ukwuachu was dismissed from the Boise State football program and expressed an interest in transferring to Baylor, I initiated a call with coach Art Briles. In that conversation, I thoroughly apprised Coach Briles of the circumstances surrounding Sam’s disciplinary record and dismissal,” said Petersen, who was Boise State’s coach at the time.
Briles said in a news conference Friday morning that he had no knowledge of Ukwuachu’s violent past at Boise State.
