Baylor has hired Frisman Jackson to be the new WR coach.

Jackson spent last year as the wide receiver coach of the Tennessee Titans. Before that, he spent two years with Baylor HC Matt Rhule coaching the wideouts at Temple. He also has had stops at NC State, Northern Illinois and Akron at the FBS level.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Baylor HC Matt Rhule will not be accepting the head-coaching position with the Indianapolis Colts.

ESPN's Adam Rittenberg relayed earlier in the week that Rhule had interviewed with the Colts. Looks like he'll be sticking it out. The Bears went just 1-11 in Rhule's first run in Waco this past season, but they were not without their positive moments in what was very much a rebuilding year. They've quietly been building a nice recruiting class, currently ranking as the No. 30 team for the 2018 cycle on Rivals.

Baylor promoted director of player personnel Evan Cooper to assistant coach.

Just what role Cooper will have now that he's been moved to the on-field staff is not yet known. He had been working as director of player personnel in Waco for the past season, having followed Bears HC Matt Rhule over after spending two years in the same capacity at Temple.

ESPN's Adam Rittenberg reports that Baylor HC Matt Rhule has interviewed for the open head-coaching position with the Indianapolis Colts.

Baylor went 1-11 this past season during what was very much a rebuilding year for the Bears in Rhule's first year at the helm of the ship. Rhule previously worked in the NFL as an offensive line coach with the Giants in 2012. During his head-coaching stints at Temple (2013-16) and Baylor, he holds a 29-34 record. That is obviously skewed somewhat by Baylor's rough most recent campaign. At Temple, he posted 10-win seasons in both 2015 and 2016.

Baylor signed four-star DB Byron Hanspard.

Hanspard had previously been committed to Arkansas, but switched his verbal to Baylor early in December, and now has signed on to play for the Bears. The 6-foot, 170-pound cornerback needs to add strength, but gets quality reviews for his fluidity and quickness. Baylor was a mess in 2017 on the defensive side -- and offensive side, to be blunt -- so adding talents like Hanspard was necessary if they're going to compete in the Big-12.

Baylor received a verbal commitment from four-star 2018 QB Gerry Bohanon.

The Bears won out over Arkansas, Memphis and Indiana. Bohanon (6'3/212) will be signing with the program on Wednesday. The dual-threat gunslinger is raw as a passer, but has shown a nice amount of touch when he's put the ball in the air. On the 247Sports composite, Bohanon lands at No. 229 overall. Baylor is very quietly putting together a potential top-20 class for the 2018 cycle.

Four-star 2018 WR Tyquan Thornton decommitted from Florida and has verbally committed to Baylor.

It's the second four-star player to decommit from Florida this week, as quarterback Matt Corral also flipped his commitment to Ole Miss. Thornton ranks 57th on the Scout.com wide receiver list, and ranked just outside of the top 300 at 307. With Baylor coming off a 1-11 season, the 6-foot-3, 185-pound wideout is a candidate for immediate playing time.

Baylor redshirt junior RB Terence Williams will graduate and then transfer from the school.

Williams will graduate in May, and then look to play elsewhere. He was a thousand-yard back for the Bears in 2016, but lost playing time in a transition year for the 1-11 club. He should find interest from clubs looking for a tailback in 2018.

The Big 12 suspended Baylor freshman DE D.J. Artis for the team's conference-opener against Kansas in 2018.

Artis (6'2/220) will sit out the entirety of the conference opener next season as punishment for his role in a brawl during the second half of Saturday's loss to TCU. Bears RB JaMycal Hasty has also been suspended for that Kansas contest, though he will only be forced to sit out the first half of the game. Artis, a three-star recruit for the 2017 cycle, finished his first collegiate season having logged one tackle.

The Big 12 suspended Baylor redshirt sophomore RB JaMycal Hasty for the first half of next year's conference-opener against Kansas.

Hasty was involved in a second half brawl in Saturday's loss to TCU. Had Baylor qualified for a bowl, the redshirt sophomore would have sat in the first half of the team's bowl game. As is, the Bears finished out the year with a 1-11 record, hence why the suspension has been shifted to the start of the conference schedule in 2018. Hasty rushed for 314 yards and a touchdown in eight games this season.

Baylor freshman QB Charlie Brewer suffered a separated shoulder in the fourth quarter of Friday's 45-22 loss to TCU.

Brewer had been playing quite well prior to sustaining the injury, throwing for 301 yards, two touchdowns and an interception before exiting stage left. Zach Smith subsequently took over for him at quarterback. With the Bears finishing with a 1-11 record and long-ago eliminated from bowl contention, Brewer will have plenty of time to get right before spring practice. His exact timetable to return to team activities will be ironed out in the coming days and weeks.

Baylor redshirt sophomore WR/CB Blake Lynch caught four passes for 110 yards and a touchdown in Friday's 45-22 loss to TCU.

Lynch was seeing the field at cornerback earlier this season to help Baylor paper over some losses in the secondary, but the 6-foot-3, 210-pounder has been working once more at receiver over the last month. Just under half of his yardage on Friday came on a slick catch-and-run touchdown of 54 yards with just over a minute gone over the first quarter clock. Assuming he moves back to wideout full time for 2018, Lynch has the athletic tools for big numbers.

Baylor senior TE Jordan Feurbacher (lower body) will not be available for Friday's game against TCU.

With Feurbacher ruled out for the contest, his career with Baylor is now a wrap. He finishes out having caught 16 passes for 192 yards and three touchdowns. It'll be Ish Wainwright's show on Friday.
Fri, Nov 24, 2017 12:10:00 PM

Baylor freshman QB Charlie Brewer completed 26-of-36 passes for 198 yards, a touchdown and an interception in Saturday's 23-13 loss to Iowa State.

This was a disappointing showing after the 6-foot-1, 190-pounder went over 400 passing yards last week and over 300 yards the week before that. Brewer threw for three touchdowns in each of those games.
