Reports: Matt Rhule out as a Jets coaching candidate

NCAA Football: Texas Bowl-Baylor vs Vandebilt Thomas B. Shea-USA TODAY Sports

Baylor head coach Matt Rhule is apparently out as a Jets coaching candidate according to Ian Rapoport.

It sounds as though the issue might have been Rhule’s potential coaching staff.

I have to agree with Manish on this one.

You could argue about Rhule’s quality as a candidate either way, but I think the position the Jets took is ridiculous. If you trust a guy enough to run your team, he has to be allowed to implement his vision. A recommendation or two is fine, but it should ultimately be the head coach’s call.

A front office certainly cannot dictate assistant hires. That’s a recipe for discord and for a coach to be undermined.
