Unless you’re incredibly plugged into the coaching carousel scene (and I mean so plugged in that you’re Mack Rhoades), I doubt you expected Matt Rhule to be named the next head coach of Baylor University. Names like Fedora, Dykes, Morris, Fleck, and others flew around frequently over the past 10 days or so, but outside of a side mention here or there, Matt Rhule wasn’t really considered the prime candidate for the job... Until he was the coach.
OF COURSE this is basically all we’re talking about, save for a short interlude about the basketball team near the end of the podcast (seriously though, how fun is this team?). We’re talking about the hire, the surprise, the arrival, the press conference, and just exactly how excited we are that Rhule is the new head coach of the Baylor Bears. We’re talking recruiting, schemes, and answering the questions that you asked. I hope you enjoy it.
Sic ‘em, and welcome to Baylor, Coach Rhule! We’re ecstatic to have you.
