Matt Rhule Being Fired By Panthers Was Not Unexpected

Just 5 weeks into his third season as the Head Coach of the Carolina Panthers, Matt Rhule has been let go and former Arizona Cardinals HC, Steve Wilks will take over in the interim. Dan is less than surprised considering he thought it was only a matter of when Rhule got fired, not if, especially considering he’d already heard rumors of Rhule being considered to take over at Arizona State after Herm Edwards got fired. It seems appropriate since Rhule has proven himself to be a better college coach than professional.

Dan Patrick: “Matt Rhule; it wasn’t a question of if, but when. It was brought to my attention Matt Rhule, a couple of weeks ago, before Herm Edwards got fired, that Matt Rhule could be a guy for a job like that (Arizona State). So, this isn’t out of (the blue). And he might be a better college coach than a pro coach, well; yes, he is a better college coach than a pro coach.”
