Dave Aranda’s stance on leaving Baylor is becoming clear.
Aranda is in his second season as Baylor’s head coach and has the Bears at 9-2. That’s a major turnaround from their 2-7 record a season ago.
Thanks to his success this year, buttressed by the way his defense shut down Oklahoma, Aranda has been a popular name for coaching vacancies. His name has been mentioned in conversations regarding the USC and LSU jobs, to name a few.
But Aranda told Fox’s Joel Klatt that he loves it at Baylor, “and this is where I want to be, and I think the fit here at Baylor is so strong.”
Yahoo’s Pete Thamel says Aranda has made clear he plans to remain at Baylor and not leave this coaching cycle.
