ESPN's Adam Rittenberg relayed earlier in the week that Rhule had interviewed with the Colts.

Matt Rhule intends to remain head coach at Baylor, rebuffing "serious interest" from the Indianapolis Colts, who interviewed the first-year Bears coach last week.

Cooper, who previously served at Temple as director of external operations and as a defensive graduate assistant, followed Baylor's new head coach to take over the recruiting team.

In a separate rule change created to get matches started more quickly, warm-up times will be strictly enforced. It doesn't get much easier, as he could face fourth seed Alexander Zverev as early as the fourth round.

King said there was no coming back from those remarks. "If I were playing today, I would not play in this court", she said. So, that's all the devil - that's what Hitler did and that's what communism did: got the mind of the children.

Rhule just finished his first season at Baylor, with a 1-11 record in the wake of the mess Art Briles left behind. Rhule made Cooper his first hire after accepting the position December 6, 2016 and leading Temple's Owls to a 20-7 record through two seasons - the best two-season mark in school history.

Rhule clearly wants to stay at Baylor and learn the ropes of major college football a bit more. Rhule was mentioned as an extreme dark horse candidate for the Giants' opening last month, based exclusively on that flimsy connection to his only National Football League coaching experience. That might be a smart move considering this is his only major head coaching job on his resumé thus far. The NFL job has been open since the team fired Chuck Pagano in December after six years with the organization.
