Baylor head coach Art Briles took in the Texans' Wednesday minicamp practice, and was a welcome sight to one of his former players.
The second day of Texans Mandatory Minicamp was in full swing on Wednesday.
"It was a good surprise to see him," quarterback Case Keenum, who played for Briles at the University of Houston in 2006 and 2007, said. "It's been awhile."
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."
Undrafted rookie linebackers Terrance Lloyd and Chris McAllister also played for Briles at Baylor. Long snapper Jon Weeks played at Baylor, but his final season was in 2007, just before Briles arrived.
Briles and Baylor open the 2014 season at home on August 31 against the SMU Mustangs.
