It's tough to imagine a better fit for a great university than David Bailiff at Rice.

Thursday night, we told you about his three-year contract extension. On Friday, Bailiff beamed with pride about all the possibilities at Rice following the Owls' bowl win last season.

"That's exciting to have that kind of longevity at a place you really enjoy working around young men that you just love to be around" said Bailff. "I truly am blessed. I'm coaching the future leaders of this country and it's an incredible opportunity."

Bailiff is 30-44 in six seasons at Rice and is 2-0 in bowl games, including last season's 33-14 win over Air Force in the Armed Forces Bowl.
