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.
When Matt Rhule's name started to get tossed around as the next head coach of the Indianapolis Colts, it surprised some and seemed like a logical move to others.
Nagy left his interview with Ballard to re-engage management with the Bears and he became head coach of the franchise two days later.
Baylor was 1-11 last season but Rhule has put together a recruiting class in the top 25 according to 24/7 Sports. He went 28-23 over the previous four seasons as head coach at Temple, going from 2-10 in his first season to back-to-back 10-win seasons in 2015 and 2016.
The lingering question hanging over the Colts is the health of quarterback Andrew Luck's throwing shoulder after he just missed an entire season.
There's always a surprise candidate for an National Football League head coaching vacancy, and this year that candidate is way off the radar.
Rhule was interviewed yesterday by the Colts brass to see if he would be a good fit for the head job in Indy.
