Matt Rhule, the former Carolina Panthers head coach, is all set to return to college football to be the next head coach of Nebraska.
Ahead of the games today, Ian Rapoport reported:
Matt Rhule's time in the NFL with the Carolina Panthers wasn't fruitful, but he has a great track record in college. Fans should be excited about Rhule in Nebraska.
Here's what social media said about Rhule getting the Nebraska job:
Rhule's record as a head coach in college football is quite impressive. He had a 19-20 record from 2017-2019 at Baylor and a 28-23 record from 2013-2016 at Temple.
However, in the NFL, he had a record of 11-27 while being the head coach of the Carolina Panthers. Hopefully, he will be able to perform well in Nebraska and get his respect back among the football fans.
Pat McAfee is delighted by the hiring of Matt Rhule
Many are impressed by Nebraska's decision to hire Rhule as their new head coach because it shows their intentions to get better. Former NFL punter Patt McAfee on ESPN's College Day expressed his happiness with the decision as well. He said:
"I love it. I honestly I think it's good one whenever we were in Boone, North Carolina, Matt rule was still the Carolina Panthers head coach, right. We are in Carolina. And I mentioned like Matt rule. I don't know if his job is safe. All of Carolina cheered."
"The App State fans cheered for him to get fired and get sent out of the NFL. I think this is great for Matt rule. Yes. I love Matt rule. I love the type of coach he is I love the success he's had getting back into college finding his way yet again. I'm pumped for him. I'm pumped for Nebraska..."
Matt Rhule will begin his tenure next season and play an important part in the recruitment process. Having a tough job on his hands, it will be interesting to see how Nebraska will play under him.
