This article spotlights the Hamilton Tigercats’ decision around the hiring of Art Briles, a former Baylor University head coach who was fired in the wake of a sexual assault scandal, announcing early Monday that he would be joining the club as an assistant coach. The announcement was greeted with widespread criticism, especially in light of the CFL’s policy to address violence against women, working in partnership with the Ending Violence Association of Canada. By Monday evening, the Ticats released a statement saying that Art Briles would no longer be joining the Hamilton Tiger-Cats as a coach.
