Baylor Bears add Gush, Buckels to coaching staff

Baylor coach Art Briles is still shaking up
his defensive coaching staff, hiring assistants Jim Gush and
Carlton Buckels on Wednesday to work under new coordinator Phil
Bennett.
Bennett was hired as defensive coordinator Friday.
Baylor is coming off its first winning season since 1995, and
its first bowl appearance since 1994. Still, the Bears ranked 104th
out of 120 FBS teams in total defense, allowing 436 total yards a
game. They were 89th in scoring defense (30.5 points a game).
No longer on the Baylor staff are linebackers coach Larry
Hoefer, secondary coach Kim McCloud and defensive ends coach Theo
Young. Hoefer, who just completed his eighth season, was the
longest-tenured Bears coach.
