Baylor hires LSU coordinator Dave Aranda as next head coach

The Baylor Bears have hired LSU Defensive Coordinator Dave Aranda to be their new head coach, Bruce Feldman of FOX Sports and The Athletic reported Thursday afternoon. Details of the deal have not been revealed.

Aranda comes to Waco less than one week removed from winning a national title with the Tigers on Monday. Under Aranda, the Tigers ranked in the Top 30 in Total Defense each season.

This will be Aranda’s first head coaching job. Prior to coaching at LSU, he served as defensive coordinator at Utah State and Wisconsin.

He replaces Matt Rhule, who left Baylor last week to become the head coach of the Carolina Panthers.
