Another of Art Briles’ former Baylor assistant coaches has landed a new job. The Arizona Cardinals announced the hiring of Chris Achuff on Wednesday as their new assistant defensive line coach.
Achuff joined Briles’ staff at Baylor in 2007 as defensive line coach and worked eight seasons under Briles and another under interim head coach Jim Grobe. He spent the 2017 season at Navarro College in Corsicana under Jim Gush, another of Briles’ former coaches.
Achuff has 19 years of college football coaching experience, having also coached at Bloomsburg, Chattanooga and Tennessee-Martin. The Cardinals’ job is his initial foray into pro football.
