Jets wanted him last year. Browns and Giants wanted him this year. There must be a reason everybody keeps calling the guy. Also apparently he's a big analytics guy, kind of opposite of the old school approach that Rivera had which is what Tepper was looking for. We'll see how it works out.

Apparently Anderson may get a look as he is a former player.

Well this could complicate our coaching search a bit.

Which coach would this take from us?

I am not speaking in specifics. But this is another opening that some of our current candidates might wish to explore before making decisions.

I was thinking maybe you had a name in mind. Yes, it definitely can change all assistant job searches. Depends on if anyone for us has a connection to Rhule, I would think?

Even if I did have a name in mind, I wouldn’t share it on here. I see no need to rile up an already anxiety ridden base with speculation.

I'm not too worried because I believe we should give Clark 100% trust at first and see how things look this year. The good thing about our roster is that it should not take more than 4-5 weeks to see if the hire looks to pan out. We have the talent. I feel bad for the teams who lack like talent and may need 2-3 years before you can even come to a conclusion.

Why wouldn't you be? He turned a 1 win team into an 11 win team. It's a perfect fit for him also without the pressure of being in New York. What's the alternative, a re-tread NFL guy?

I have no skin in the game regarding the Panthers, but a seven year deal? That seems crazy to me.

Yeah that contract is massive for a first time NFL coach. 7 years, $60 million with an additional $10 million/yr in bonus opportunity.

But you know what they say, the value of something is what someone is willing to pay for it.

That was after taking a 2-win Temple team into a 10-win Temple team (two years in a row, winning their division one year and their conference the next).

Rhule can coach.

Not only has he proven he can coach, he also fits the direction the owner wants to go in. Tepper is aggressive and not afraid to open the check book. Of all the names I had heard in the rumor mills this one intrigued me the most, just thankful they dodged McCarthy and McDaniels.

Way too much money, he's been successful in a not so strong league, and I'm just not a fan of the college to NFL hires, they usually don't work out. That doesn't mean he won't be successful, I hope he is, I was hoping for Bienemy from the Chiefs.
