There's always a surprise candidate for an National Football League head coaching vacancy, and this year that candidate is way off the radar. Looks like he'll be sticking it out. Rhule made Cooper his first hire after accepting the position December 6, 2016 and leading Temple's Owls to a 20-7 record through two seasons - the best two-season mark in school history. They've quietly been building a nice recruiting class, now ranking as the No. 30 team for the 2018 cycle on Rivals.

According to ESPN's Adam Rittenberg, Baylor head coach Matt Rhule interviewed for the same position for the Indianapolis Colts. After interviewing with the colts, Rhule has made a decision to stay at Baylor. Rhule, who completed his first season with the Bears in November, spent the 2012 season as the New York Giants offensive line coach. 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.

The lingering question hanging over the Colts is the health of quarterback Andrew Luck's throwing shoulder after he just missed an entire season.

It's hard to imagine a logical list of National Football League head coaching candidates including Rhule anywhere.
