Panthers hire Rhule as new head coach

By DJ Ramirez | Sports Editor

After three years as the head coach of Baylor football, Matt Rhule signed with the Carolina Panthers to become the franchise’s fifth head coach Tuesday morning, as first reported by Yahoo Sports and NFL Network Insider.

The seven-year deal is reported by ESPN to be worth $60 million with incentives that could bring that number up to $70 million. The Panthers met with Rhule on Monday at his home in Waco.

The New York native, who has been the hot name in the coaching market for several weeks now, was also supposed to meet with the New York Giants today in New Jersey.
