Oklahoma State freshman Stevie Clark, arrested for marijuana possession

Oklahoma State freshman guard Stevie Clark was arrested in Edmond, Okla., on Wednesday morning for possession of marijuana.

Clark was a passenger in the car that was pulled over due to seatbelt violation when an officer determined that there was marijuana in the vehicle, according to Edmond Police spokeswoman Jenny Monroe.

Both Clark and the unidentified driver of the vehicle were arrested.

Clark posted bond and was released on Wednesday.

The former Douglass High standout has already been the subject of disciplinary action this season.

He was suspended from the team and sent home from the team's appearance in the Old Spice Classic in November due to what his coach called "personal reasons."

Art Briles might take the Texas job if it's offered to him

Baylor's Art Briles has made himself one of the hottest coaching candidates in the nation. Briles has turned around programs at Houston and Baylor and has made the Bears a higher profile team. While many speculate on his coaching future with a possible NFL job, the Texas Longhorns could be the tema that wins a possible Briles sweepstakes.

In a report in the Austin American-Statesman, a source says that Briles would be willing to meet Texas athletic director Steve Patterson to interview for the Longhorns job. Briles has not been interviewed but the report says that Briles would take the job if it was offered to him.   

Briles signed a new 10-year contract with Baylor after it clinched its first ever Big 12 championship. A high-ranking Texas source said Briles’ buyout is $4 million, but other reports suggest that it could be much higher than that figure, possibly $12 million, a price the Longhorns would more than likely be willing to pay.

With the high octane offense Briles orchestrates and the talent that annually come to Texas the Big 12 should be very afraid if Briles lands in Austin.
