It doesn't take a genius to figure out how much Baylor's program has been transformed thanks to Art Briles. But one Big 12 coach thinks the public actually underestimates Briles' value to his program.

Athlon Sports released anonymous comments from coaches across the conference about each Big 12 team and Baylor was well-represented.

"Art Briles has transformed the whole perception of that program," one anonymous coach said. "They were once great under Grant Teaff, then they hit a bump…Art has brought them back with really good recruiting relationships with high school coaches and a system that works at a place like that."
