Baylor has hired former Wake Forest coach Jim Grobe on an interim basis, according to ESPN.

Grobe, 64, takes over at Baylor in the wake of allegation of sexual assault and other violence that have rocked the Bears program.

Grobe’s head coaching record all-time is 110-115-1. He went 77-82 in 13 seasons at Wake Forest.

In 2006, Grobe guided Wake Forest to an 11-3 record and an ACC championship.

Grobe resigned as Wake Forest’s head coach after finishing 4-8 in 2013. It was Grobe’s fifth consecutive losing season.

According to ESPN’s report, the Bears also considered former San Francisco 49ers coach Mike Singletary, a former Baylor All-American, and current defensive coordinator Phil Bennett for the job before settling on Grobe.
