Baylor's Matt Rhule Passes on National Football League to Remain in Waco with Bears


Baylor head coach Matt Rhule is staying put.

"[Cooper] has been instrumental in coordinating our recruiting efforts since coming with us to Baylor a year ago", said Matt Rhule, who just closed his first season as the Bears' head coach, per an official press release.

Rhule did not respond to a Tribune-Herald request for comment, and Baylor athletic director Mack Rhoades declined to comment, citing Baylor personnel policy.

Nagy left his interview with Ballard to re-engage management with the Bears and he became head coach of the franchise two days later.

To be fair to Rhule, he inherited a messy situation in Waco, so the 1-11 campaign isn't necessarily an indictment of his coaching skills.

The Indianapolis Colts aren't leaving any stone unturned in an attempt to replace the recently fired Chuck Pagano at head coach.

It looks like fans of the Baylor Bears can breathe a sigh of relief for now with Matt Rhule planning to continue the rebuild project he started last season.

Rhule, 42, has mostly been a college coach save for one season in the National Football League in 2012 as an offensive line coach for the Giants.

It's hard to imagine a logical list of National Football League head coaching candidates including Rhule anywhere.
