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.
Before much ado is made about this latest development, it doesn't appear as though the Colts ever offered their head coaching job to Rhule-whose recent candidacy drew much angst among the Indianapolis fan base due to a lack of qualifications. After interviewing with the colts, Rhule has made a decision to stay at Baylor.
Rhule was an assistant coach at Temple from 2006-2011 before landing back there as head coach in 2013. Despite seeing Baylor put up a disastrous 2017 campaign, Rhule is widely respected within the coaching community.
Rhule just finished his first season at Baylor, with a 1-11 record in the wake of the mess Art Briles left behind. Joining Rhule is Carolina Panthers defensive coordinator Steve Wilks, who was supposed to interview with the Colts on Thursday but NFL Network's Ian Rapoport said he declined the interview as the Colts seem focused on hiring an offensive-minded coach.
