The Colts interviewed Baylor head coach Matt Rhule in an expansive search to replace Chuck Pagano, but their search thinned out a bit on Thursday night.
Rapoport noted the Colts appear to be gearing their search around a more offensive-minded leader. The 42-year-old Rhule has coached on both sides of the ball, with his NFL experience coming as the Giants’ offensive line coach (in 2012), but his most recent assistant jobs (at Temple) were on offense. This leaves Josh McDaniels alone as an offensively geared coach in a search that included meetings with Seahawks DC Kris Richard and Texans DC Mike Vrabel.
Rhule will coach at the Waco, Texas, program for a second season. He was Temple’s HC for four seasons prior to getting the Big 12 gig.
