    I thought he had unfinished business at Baylor :D.

    I know he changed tune after he said that, but still funny.

    He's full of it. He applied for Giants job in NFL 2 years ago.

    These guys are just like all of us...looking for a better gig even while they are working at their current gig. Nothing wrong with that.

    I think Rhule is one of the best coaches in the business. I wonder if we will see him again in CFB

    Should be interesting. I thought Rivera was a solid HC, but sometimes a change of scenery is needed (see Andy Reid). I'd rather see new guys getting their crack at the NFL than the same old re-treads.

    No, I don't think so either. either. From what it sounds like, once he decided he was gonna shop himself he told his players as well. For all intents and purposes I think he handled himself quite well on top of everything else.

    Rhule got a 7 year 60 million dollar deal with incentives. Even if he washes out he gets paid and there is always a college job waiting.

    IF I were the Browns I would be on the phone to Shurmur. The dude is a very good coach who was limited by his roster with the Giants.

    Like jury duty. You have to have a valid Dr.'s note in order to "call off" when it's your turn to coach the Browns.

    It seems fairly clear that some organizations give a better chance for a guy to be a successful head coach than others. Gotta make a change to keep the fan base (or owner) hopeful even if you're pretty sure the new guy won't make any difference.

    The Browns need somebody who can deal with their QB. Shurmur is a darned good QB developer/OC at the very least.

    The NFL is all about a strong front office. It's a salary cap game, combined with a HC that can keep the locker room together, with vocal players/leaders to galvanize different personalities.

    Jimmy Johnson was 8-24 as the Cowboys' head coach in 1989-90...won back-to-back Super Bowls in 1992-93.
