Two aides to former Baylor football coach Art Briles were fired Tuesday.

Athletics director for football operations Colin Shillinglaw and staffer Tom Hill were relieved of their duties, according to USA Today.

Briles, who had eight years remaining on his contract, was fired last week.

Shillinglaw worked behind the scenes and was a trusted confidante of Briles and was involved with the accusations in the Pepper Hamilton report that led to Briles being fired, the resignation of athletic director Ian McCaw and university president Ken Starr's reassignment.

Hill, according to USA Today, unofficially was very involved with the program for the past 15 years.

On Monday, the university hired former Wake Forest coach Jim Grobe as its interim head coach but did not make any announcements about the fate of the coaching staff that remains.
