My serpentine belt was going bad and since I

jammed in it but it's completely clear of debris

might be one of the pulleys. Remove the belt again and spin the pulleys, one at a time by hand. See if one spins freely and or is stuck and makes noise.

Always change all idlers and the tensioner when servicing a serpentine belt @ 80,000 miles.

I'll bet Tom is right, usually it is the tensioner. Serpentine belts will generally last for 100,000+ miles if all the pulleys are in good condition.
