Baylor fans weren’t the only excited ones as the Bears defeated the Iowa State Cyclones 31-24 on Saturday.

After a positive Bears play, head coach Dave Aranda delivered solid whacks to the backsides of a couple assistant coaches on the sidelines.

Watch the interactions here:

Aranda was tagged for the head coaching position at Baylor in 2020 after spending four years at LSU as a defensive backs coach.  Last season, Baylor was ranked in the top 25 for the majority of the season, and finished with a 12-2 record, the most wins in program history.

Aranda won the AP Big 12 Coach of the Year in 2021, as well as the Paul “Bear” Bryant Awards program’s Big 12 Coach of the Year, and was the first Baylor football coach to win the George Munger Award.

The odd ‘atta boy’ seems to be working for Aranda and the Bears. Perhaps we’ll see more excitement from the Bears this season, both on the field and the sidelines.
