Baylor's Rhule interviewed for Colts job

Adjust Comment Print

Rhule was viewed as a "mystery candidate" earlier in the week until it was reported he had interviewed with the Colts. Looks like he'll be sticking it out.

Rhule, 42, just finished up his first season as head coach for the scandal-filled Bears football program - tallying a 1-11 overall record. They've quietly been building a nice recruiting class, now ranking as the No. 30 team for the 2018 cycle on Rivals.

Matt Rhule was a name not many Indianapolis Colts fans knew.

The first presale, for "Zamily" fan club members, kicks off Tuesday morning with others scattered throughout the week. Target Field said that the band will be taking their "Down The Rabbit Hole" tour to the Minneapolis venue in August.

He has some limited experience in the National Football League, too, as offensive line coach for the New York Giants for one season five years ago.

Rhule did not respond to a Tribune-Herald request for comment, and Baylor athletic director Mack Rhoades declined to comment, citing Baylor personnel policy. Prior to that, he was the head coach at Temple for four seasons.

According to the Indianapolis Star's Zak Keefer, the Colts have already interviewed Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, Seahawks defensive coordinator Kris Richard, Texans defensive coordinator Mike Vrabel, Rhule and former Chiefs offensive coordinator Matt Nagy, who has since been hired by the Chicago Bears. However, it seems he's taken himself out of the running for the Colts' open position.
