Baylor will be hiring Guy Morriss as its head football coach, passing up the chance to nab Hayden Fry. "Frankly, it's hard to imagine getting to this point and not hiring coach Hayden Fry," Waco Tribune-Herald sports editor Kim Gorum wrote before the decision. "It's obvious to football people everywhere. One Division I-A head coach, talking this week to a friend he'd coached with at Texas in the 90s, was shocked to hear that Fry was pursuing the Baylor job. 'Why in the world wouldn't they hire him?' he asked."
