Pete Thamel mentioned that there are still some details to be finalized including the $34 million owed to him by the Panthers. 

Rhule has been mentioned as a potential candidate for Nebraska for a while now, so this shouldn’t come as a big surprise. 

Rhule did a good job at both Temple and Baylor before landing the Panthers’ job and Nebraska could use someone to stabilize the program after disappointing results from their last few head coaches. 

Rhule, 47, began his coaching career at Albright as a linebackers coach in 1998. He worked for a number of schools including Buffalo, Western Carolina, UCLA, and Temple before being hired by the Giants as an assistant offensive line coach for the 2012 season.

Rhule returned to Temple as head coach in 2013 and spent four years in the position before being hired as the new head coach at Baylor in 2017.

During his time as a head coach, Rhule’s teams at Temple and Baylor produced a record of 47-42 (52.8 percent) and four bowl appearances.

In the NFL, Rhule posted a record of 11-27 (28.9 percent) in three seasons with the Panthers.
