    The team is setup for a run. I wouldn't be surprised if they found a well known coach looking for a final run at a Natty.

    So, maybe Urban Meyer? They gave been willing to pay and the fanbase doesn't exactly come across as looking to be squeaky clean.

    He's flirted with the NFL the least two offseasons. It's obvious he's interested in making the jump. The only way he stays is if, similar to last year, he doesn't find the ideal fit. Carolina and New York are both pretty good opportunities.

    Never said he’s gone but he wants to go to the nfl, that much is a fact. And if he’s allowed to have/bring his own staff, he’s gone.

    Can someone explain to me the hype? What am I missing here? Is Rhule really that good a coach?

    Well he did take Baylor from 1-11 two years ago to 11-2 and a shot to play in the playoff this year. I think you have to be a pretty darn good coach to do such a thing. No different than CMC and how he turned around Iowa State in a short amount of time and why he's gotten NFL hype as well.

    From all that I can tell and have seen he is very similar in coaching philosophy to Matt Campbell. Albeit with a different demeanor completely.

    CEO style approach, loyal to his staff, builds and develops kids into the type of team/culture he envisions. Plus, he just went 11-2 with their only losses coming to OU.

    Similar reasons to why we say Campbell will stay here.

    All of those are important, but sometimes you get an offer you can't refuse.

    I'm curious where he gets his salary info. Is Baylor really paying a top 6 salary?

    Other than the results like his record and Baylor playing ISU's defense better than ISU, I'd say yes, he is, as much as I hate to say it.

    Have to assume a guy like Joel Klatt has contacts who have seen the contract, either within Baylor or other ADs/NFL GMs who've inquired. But being a private university means Rhule's salary doesn't have to be public.

    There is a ton of hype about CMC and Rhule has done more in less time at BU.

    "Quick thoughts/info on Matt Rhule

    1) salary is currently in top 6 in CFB
    2) buyout is north of $10 M
    3) he likes Baylor and enjoys raising his young family there"

    Are Buyouts typically paid if a jump to NFL is made? I suppose it depends on the contract.
