The mass exodus continues.
LSU defensive coordinator Dave Aranda has just been officially named the new head coach at Baylor, first reported by Bruce Feldman of The Athletic and now confirmed by the University. Aranda, who spent four years in Baton Rouge, is set to replace Matt Rhule, who took the Carolina Panthers job on Jan. 8.
“Today is an exciting day for Baylor,” Director of Athletics Mack Rhoades says. “Dave is a special person who loves football and his student-athletes, is highly intellectual, and is great mission fit for both Baylor Athletics and the University at large.”
Aranda is one of the top defensive minds in all of college football and will head into an offensive-heavy Big 12 Conference for his first major head coaching gig.
