Sports Minute: Rhule successor at Baylor will start in different situation
By STEPHEN HAWKINS
AP Sports Writer
Baylor's next coach will take over a better and much different situation than Matt Rhule did just over three years ago. The Bears went 11-3 this season, going to the Big 12 title game and Sugar Bowl. Rhule was named Tuesday as head coach of the NFL's Carolina Panthers. Baylor has already started a nationwide search for his replacement. Rhule arrived in Waco, Texas, to a depleted roster in the aftermath of a sprawling sexual assault scandal that led to Art Briles getting fired in May 2016. The Bears went 7-6 under interim coach Jim Grobe before going 1-11 in Rhule's debut in 2017.
