The Colts have always been expected to have their eyes on a coach from the college ranks to take over as their head man, but very few would have guessed they would interview this one.
Uncertainty around Rhule's future with the Bears began when he interviewed for the head coaching vacancy for the Indianapolis Colts, according to a report from ESPN's Adam Rittenburg.
Rhule clearly wants to stay at Baylor and learn the ropes of major college football a bit more.
Rhule does have National Football League coaching experience, as he was the Giants' offensive line coach in 2012 when NY defeated the Patriots in the Super Bowl. He turned a 2-10 record in his first season as head coach at Temple in 2013 into back-to-back 10-win seasons in 2015 and 2016.
Rhule and Matt Nagy, former offensive coordinator of the Kansas City Chiefs, declined further negotiations with the Colts, NFL Network reported. While Rhule doesn't have much in terms of head coaching experience, he is thought to be an up and coming offensive mind.
The Colts will need to find another candidate to take over the job.
Colts general manager Chris Ballard promised to have a very thorough interview process with a deep pool of potential head coaching candidates.
