Matt Rhule said last week he plans to remain in Waco as Baylor’s head coach, but plans change.

Rhule turned down an interview opportunity with the Browns. He will meet with the Panthers and the Giants.

Ian Rapoport of the NFL reports that the Panthers will meet with Rhule on Monday and the Giants will interview Rhule on Tuesday.

Rhule turned around Baylor after going 1-11 his first season. BU was 7-6 last season and 11-3 this season.

His only NFL coaching experience came as the Giants’ assistant offensive line coach in 2012.

Rhule’s record as a head coach is 47-43.

The Panthers also have interim coach Perry Fewell, Vikings offensive coordinator Kevin Stefanksi and Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels on their interview list in the coming week.

The Giants already have met with four candidates after completing an interview with Ravens defensive coordinator Wink Martindale on Saturday night. They also have interviewed Cowboys defensive passing game coordinator Kris Richard, former Packers coach Mike McCarthy and Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy.

  1. This guy has a 47-43 record at Baylor? WHY would we even think about interviewing him for the head coaching job when Coach Rivera had a 76-63-1 record? Is Tepper nuts?

  2. Rhule’s record as a head coach is 47-43. At the College Level!
    He has not won against a ranked opponent other than #25 OK state. Perfect fit for the Giants…

  3. Who knows if he will work out or not, but from everything I’ve read about him he’s a pretty good football coach. Hoping he stays out of the NFC east and chooses the Panthers.

  4. I’d give a long look to this coach, and not because Baylor had a good season this year. Even when Baylor wasn’t winning, the offense was beautiful to watch. Still need talent to win, but at least his team won’t be getting out-coached. Actually, The Panthers and Giants weren’t getting out-coached either. The Panthers’ new owner probably just wants to press the re-start button and bring in is his own guys. The Giants are on the right track, but they had a rookie QB, so they’d be getting much better even if they didn’t make a coaching change.

  5. Rhule turned down an interview opportunity with the Browns. He will meet with the Panthers and the Giants.

    Smart, who’d want to coach the Browns?

  6. I don’t know that his offense was “beautiful to watch” during the years when Baylor still stunk under his watch, but he does run a pro style offense. The Giants’ personnel is the best fit for Rhule’s coaching skills, but the interview will have to be a meeting of the minds between him and Gettleman for this to get done. Rhule wants control of personnel and if he can’t get it, him and Gettleman are going to have to see eye-to-eye. A power struggle will be inevitable if Rhule starts winning.
