Baylor replaced Elijah Robinson, who left earlier this year for Texas A&M with Frank Okam. Okam will take over the defensive line duties for Matt Rhule and the Bears. Okam most recently coached on David Bailiff's Rice staff where he helped Brian Womac to a career season.
Okam played collegiately at Texas where he earned All-American and All-Big 12 honors. He was drafted in the fifth round of the 2008 draft by the Houston Texans and played for the Seahawks, the Buccaneers, and the Giants.
Okam received his master's degree while coaching at Rice as well.
