New York Giants scheduled for Tuesday meeting with Baylor HC Matt Rhule

Giants, Matt Rhule

The New York Giants are scheduled to meet with Baylor’s Matt Rhule on Tuesday for their head coaching vacancy, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.

Rhule is considered by many to be the favorite to land the Giants job.

This marks the second straight offseason that Rhule has been in contention to land a head coaching position in the NFL.

Last offseason, Rhule looked to be on his way to becoming head coach of the New York Jets, but he backed out at the last minute because the Jets would not let him hire his own assistants.

The 44-year-old has one year of NFL coaching experience, which came back in 2012 when he served as the Giants’ assistant offensive line coach.

Otherwise, Rhule’s experience is all at the collegiate level.

He got his start back in 1998, when he was named Albright’s linebackers coach. The following year, Rhule moved on to Buffalo, holding a post as defensive line coach for two seasons before linking up with UCLA to serve the same role in 2001.

Rhule then served in various coaching jobs at Western Carolina from 2002 through 2005 en route to landing at Temple in 2006, taking a job as defensive line coach before moving to the offensive side of the ball in 2007.

After working as a quarterbacks coach and running game coordinator for one season, Rhule was promoted to the role of offensive coordinator in 2008, where he served through 2011 before making the jump to the Giants in 2012.

Rhule spent just one season in New York and then returned to Temple, where he was named head coach. He resided there from 2013 through 2016 before being hired as Baylor’s head coach in 2017.
