Thursday update at Baylor

Sometimes the absence of news is news in itself, and we have that on the Baylor front on Thursday.

The day began with Justin Fuente publicly signaling he will return to Virginia Tech after interviewing with Baylor on Wednesday.

Hours later, Billy Napier let it be known through Bruce Feldman that he will return to Louisiana-Lafayette in 2020.

Typically, these are the types of moves coaches make when they didn't get a job, which tells us Baylor might have its guy.

Baylor associate head coach Joey McGuire, Arkansas State head coach Blake Anderson and LSU defensive coordinator Dave Aranda are three of the candidates still in the hunt to be the next Baylor head coach sources tell FootballScoop.

We could have news soon. In the meantime, stay tuned to The Scoop for the latest.
