Former Carolina Panthers head coach Matt Rhule has been a popular name amongst a number of high-profile college football coaching vacancies after he was fired by Carolina earlier this year. A new report on Wednesday will certainly continue speculation around Rhule.
It certainly seems like many fans believe that this move could be a fantastic fit for both Nebraska and Matt Rhule.
Here’s the latest update from what I’m hearing through my constant dealings with ADs across the country.
Kiffin to Auburn
Matt Rhule to Nebraska
Also bronco mendenhall and Tom Herman are likely to get P5 jobs soon.

Ok, this time get the deal closed then and signed. He better keep Mickey Joseph at the very least for recruiting purposes. https://t.co/lU2GN6X0yC

On paper, it certainly seems like Rhule would have his hands full in reviving Nebraska’s once-prominent football program.
A decision on their next head coach will likely come sometime after the team’s final game of the season on Friday against the Iowa Hawkeyes.
While they could decide to go another direction with their head coaching search, it seems like Rhule is at the very least the early favorite to become Nebraska’s next head coach.
