If Indianapolis did ultimately hire Rhule, he’d certainly be an outside-the-box candidate, as his only coaching experience at the NFL level came in 2012 when he served as the Giants’ offensive line coach. Rhule does have vast amounts of collegiate experience, as he’s been working in the NCAA since 1998. Rhule was head coach at Tempe for four seasons before taking over Baylor, where posted a disappointing 1-11 record in 2017.

Thus far, Colts general manager Chris Ballard has interviewed five candidates to replace Chuck Pagano, although one of those contenders — Matt Nagy — has already taken a job with the Bears. Here’s where things stand in Indy:

    This week on “Out of Left Field News”: Colts hire Matt Rhule, “Finger Nail” is the new Doritos flavor, and Thomas The Tank engine accused of sexual harassment.

  2. Michael Chaney

    Calling that possibility an outside the box hire might even be an understatement

    McDaniels does this every year. He wants an ideal combination of control, salary, ownership, lifestyle and qb. Otherwise he goes back to Patriots and waits it out. I’m not sure any of these jobs fit. The closest might be Detroit where he’d be comfortable with former Patriot as GM and Stanford as qb. He is a headstrong guy and having the final say in picking the groceries as the Tuna once said, is a big deal to him, a dealbreaker to many of these GM’s like Gettleman with Giants.
