The Indianapolis Colts aren't leaving any stone unturned in an attempt to replace the recently fired Chuck Pagano at head coach. Looks like he'll be sticking it out. After an exodus of talent and recruits due to the sexual assault scandal, Baylor went 1-11 last season - Rhule's first on the job. They've quietly been building a nice recruiting class, now ranking as the No. 30 team for the 2018 cycle on Rivals.
Rhule clearly wants to stay at Baylor and learn the ropes of major college football a bit more.
Baylor athletic director Mack Rhoades announced on ESPN Radio in Central Texas that Rhule's status with the program had not changed, reaffirming the coach's plans to remain in Waco.
Boss still in dark over January budget
I have to concentrate on games and Saturday is an important game for us. My belief is that we will do what we have to do.
Head coach Matt Rhule of the Baylor Bears reacts during the game against the Duke Blue Devils at Wallace Wade Stadium on September 16, 2017 in Durham, North Carolina. That one-year gap in his college coaching resume was spent in the National Football League as offensive line coach for the New York Giants.
Nagy left his interview with Ballard to re-engage management with the Bears and he became head coach of the franchise two days later.
Rhule's first season with Baylor yielded lackluster results on the field, but provided hope for the future and a stout recruiting class.
