Nebraska reportedly met Tuesday with Matt Rhule.
Former Nebraska standout Will Compton tweeted the two sides met Tuesday and “the connection is strong with the Huskers.”
Would Matt Rhule be a good choice for Nebraska?
If the Cornhuskers are able to convince Rhule Lincoln is the proper landing spot for him to return to the college game, it could be a great hire.
Matt Rhule was a disaster in the NFL. His time with the Panthers was downright terrible. However, there’s no question he knows how to coach college football.
He inherited an absolutely destroyed Baylor program, went 7-6 in year two and won 11 games with the Bears in his third year in Waco. It was an incredibly impressive turnaround.
The Bears were decimated when Matt Rhule showed up. By year three, Baylor was one of the best teams in the country.
That’s the exact kind of energy Nebraska needs. It’s been a very long time since the Cornhuskers were competitive. Fans have grown very tired of the situation in Lincoln.
Rhule could come in and likely turn around the program very quickly. Again, he’s already proven he can do it.
If the Cornhuskers reach an agreement with the former Panthers coach, fans should be very happy.
