Matt Rhule’s tenure as the head coach of the Carolina Panthers was a disaster. He went 11-27 in his two-plus seasons in Charlotte as the Panthers never got it going with him at the helm. He was fired on Monday.

Of course, the former standout college coach is now being rumored for some of those jobs as well. Rhule did author incredible turnarounds and Temple and Baylor in near-impossible circumstances. And, his name is coming up for one blue-blood program in particular.

Matt Rhule is being linked with the Nebraska opening.

Since Nebraska fired Scott Frost back in September, a ton of names have been linked to that job.

And now, Matt Rhule’s name is all over Twitter when it comes to the Nebraska job.

Fox Sports’ Aaron Torres thinks the Huskers should hire Frost right now.

CBS Sports’ Dennis Dodds has Rhule’s most likely destination as Lincoln, Nebraska.

But, the Athletic’s Bruce Feldman threw some cold water on the idea, saying Rhule isn’t a lock to take the Nebraska job.

And, here are some odds on where his next landing spot will be.

College football fans chime in

Fans of all kinds of teams are giving their opinions on the new rumors.

Of course, someone had to get in one of the best memes of all time.

But, this Nebraska fan disagrees. He contends Rhule isn’t a good enough recruiter. That’s especially important for a school like Nebraska that needs to recruit nationally.

Not all Husker fans agree, though.

One thing is for certain. Matt Rhule is one of the hottest names on the coaching market and seeing where he ends up will be fascinating.
