The Carolina Panthers have reached agreement to make Baylor's Matt Rhule their new coach, a source confirmed to ESPN.
Rhule had been rumored to be in the mix for Carolina and the New York Giants, but the 44-year-old had said in December that he planned on returning to Baylor.
The Panthers are hoping that Rhule can do for them what he did for Baylor, taking a struggling program and turning it into a national power. The Bears were 1-11 in Rhule's first season in 2017 but went 11-3 this past season.
Best of luck to all the kids who signed with Baylor in December. And congrats to Oklahoma on yet another conference title this year.
