Baylor Coach Matt Rhule Reportedly Removes Himself From Colts' Coaching Search

According to ESPN's Adam Rittenberg, Baylor head coach Matt Rhule interviewed for the same position for the Indianapolis Colts.

Head coach Matt Rhule of the Temple Owls during play against the Southern Methodist Mustangs in the first half at Gerald J. Ford Stadium on November 6, 2015 in Dallas, Texas.

The Colts head coaching search continues but two candidates have removed themselves from consideration.

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

Rhule was an assistant coach at Temple from 2006-2011 before landing back there as head coach in 2013. Per Rhule, he effected the majority of the success Baylor has had in that area during the 2017 season.

Rhule, 42, recently completed the first year of his seven-year contract at Baylor University, where the Bears finished with an abysmal 1-11 record.

Rhule does have National Football League coaching experience, as he was the Giants' offensive line coach in 2012 when NY defeated the Patriots in the Super Bowl. Lauderdale, Fla. He also worked briefly with Al Golden, a former National Football League player, 4-year Miami Hurricanes head coach, and the current Detroit Lions Tight Ends Coach.
