Baylor Bears head coach Matt Rhule reportedly has interviews lined up next week with the Carolina Panthers and New York Giants, per Ian Rapoport of NFL Media.

This news comes after it was reported just last week that Rhule was not looking to interview with teams, which goes to show just how fluid these situations tend to be.

One of the hottest names out there on the coaching circuit, Rhule would be a perfect fit with the Giants, as we detailed here. He would also be a very good hire for Carolina, which needs someone to come in and turn things around quickly.

That may just be Rhule’s best trait at this point.

Rhule has a track record of being a program changer. He engineered stunning turnarounds at Temple (from 2-10 in 2013 to 10-3 in 2016) and Baylor, where he turned the Bears into an 11-2 squad that’s set to play in Sugar Bowl against Georgia after going 1-11 in 2017. So it’s not surprising that NFL teams are coveting the young coach.
