In full-on damage control mode, Baylor has decided to bring in former Wake Forest head coach
on an interim basis. Grobe put together an impressive stretch three-year stretch from 2006-08 where the Demon Deacons went 28-12 thanks in large part to a +39 combined turnover margin. He failed to produce a winning season after that and eventually resigned in 2013. As Grobe mentioned following the announcement, winning will likely take a backseat to cleaning up what has evolved into a total mess. The Bears' season over/under wins opened 9un-125 and has since been bet down to 9un-160. Baylor opens the season with its annual three "gimmie" wins (Northwestern State, SMU, and Rice).
"He has successfully led two FBS programs during his career," McCaw said in the statement. "Coach Grobe enjoys an impeccable reputation within the intercollegiate athletics community and is a man of great integrity and faith."
