Texas Tech head coach Kliff Kingsbury admitted on the Dan LeBatard Show earlier this month that some moms of players he is recruiting flirt with him.

“You’ve got to play to your strengths,” the 34-year-old Kingsbury said. “So I kind of encourage that a little bit. It’s part of the deal, man.”

Baylor head coach, 58-year-old Art Briles, told KTTX-FM 104.9 radio in Austin that he doesn’t necessarily attract the moms like Kingsbury does, but he does attract other family members.

“I don’t seem to have that problem,” Briles said. “Maybe their grandmothers.”

Even though the Bears are coming off a Big 12 Championship, the school's first since 1980, Briles played it off modestly saying that he's not a great catch and a grandmother wouldn't actually want to flirt with him.

“I’m not that great of a catch, plus I’ve been a happily married man for 30-something years. I’ve never had anything happen along those lines,” Briles said with a laugh.

You can listen to the interview here and Briles talks about Kingsbury around the 8:00 mark.
