"It was a good surprise to see him," quarterback
Briles was the head coach of the Cougars from 2003 to 2007, and has been the head coach in Waco since 2008. Keenum was happy to see his old coach on the field at the Houston Methodist Training Center.
"He's my guy," Keenum said. "He's always been my guy. I've got a lot of respect for that guy as a coach and as a person. He's one of the best."
