Baylor coach Art Briles calls it is embarrassing that one of his assistant coaches was on the sideline at an Oklahoma game.

Briles said Monday that he wasn’t aware beforehand that Jeff Lebby, who is also his son-in-law, was going to be at the Sooners’ home game against Tulsa.

When he found out, Briles said he called Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops after Saturday’s game and apologized.

Stoops said Monday that the situation needs to be dealt with through the Big 12 office. An NCAA rule prohibits off-campus, in-person scouting of future opponents.

Briles says Lebby was in Oklahoma for a wedding while the fifth-ranked Bears were off over the weekend.

While Lebby is an Oklahoma graduate, first-year Tulsa coach Philip Montgomery was a Baylor assistant the past seven years.
