Rhule, Wilks Out As Colts Head Coach Options

Looks like he'll be sticking it out.

It's not uncommon for college coaches to interview for National Football League positions, but Rhule just finished his first season at Baylor, and the Bears were 1-11 in 2017. They've quietly been building a nice recruiting class, now ranking as the No. 30 team for the 2018 cycle on Rivals.

The Indianapolis Colts interviewed Baylor head coach Matt Rhule earlier in the week for their vacant head coach position but it seems he will remain at Baylor for his second season.

Rhule just finished his first season with the Bears, compiling a 1-11 overall record. He then coached Temple for the next five years and went 28-24 with the Owls.

Rhule clearly wants to stay at Baylor and learn the ropes of major college football a bit more. Rhule, who completed his first season with the Bears in November, spent the 2012 season as the New York Giants offensive line coach. While Rhule doesn't have much in terms of head coaching experience, he is thought to be an up and coming offensive mind.

Another former Colts coach from the Chuck Pagano regime has found a new landing spot as Jemal Singleton joined Jon Gruden's staff with the Oakland Raiders as running backs coach.
