As first reported by Zach Barnett of FootballScoop.com, Baylor is set to hire Austin Thomas as the General Manager of Football Operations. Thomas spent the last two years as an Associate Athletic Director for Player Personnel. 

SicEm365 has confirmed Barnett’s report to be accurate. 

Baylor University did not officially confirm the hire at the time of this report.

Thomas spent time at LSU under new Baylor head coach Dave Aranda. 

Thomas was first General Manager in the history of the Southeastern Conference and one of two in the nation, Thomas was responsible for the oversight and management of the entire LSU Football program. One of the top personnel managers in all of college football, Thomas worked closely with NFL personnel to maximize the opportunity for LSU student-athletes at the next level.

In Thomas' first two seasons at LSU, he helped the Tigers claim back-to-back top five signing classes in 2014 and 2015, which included signing the nation's top overall player in 2014. He was named the Personnel Director of the Year in 2015 and a finalist for the award in 2014.

Welp, he certainly passed the IQ test. Wanna stay in College Station and go 8-5 every year or compete for a playoff spot with the Bears?

Everyone CDA hires wears a suit or a blazer. So far none with mullets.

Here is a quote from an Aggie on their blog regarding the hiring of Austin Thomas:

"If it cost us Austin Thomas to no longer face Aranda, I'm OK with that."
