It won't matter though, as he's elected to stay at Baylor and has taken himself out of the race for the Colts vacant head coach job.

Rhule and Matt Nagy, former offensive coordinator of the Kansas City Chiefs, declined further negotiations with the Colts, NFL Network reported. After interviewing with the colts, Rhule has chose to stay at Baylor.

The Baylor athletics department has not commented on the report.

Matt Rhule intends to remain head coach at Baylor, rebuffing "serious interest" from the Indianapolis Colts, who interviewed the first-year Bears coach last week. Prior to that, he was the head coach at Temple for four seasons.

He has some limited experience in the National Football League, too, as offensive line coach for the New York Giants for one season five years ago.

To be fair to Rhule, he inherited a messy situation in Waco, so the 1-11 campaign isn't necessarily an indictment of his coaching skills.

Rhule's first season with Baylor yielded lackluster results on the field, but provided hope for the future and a stout recruiting class. 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.
