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.

Snow falls on the usually quite hot Sahara Desert
As far as records go, snow was seen in Ain Sefra on February 18, 1979, after a snow storm hit the Saharan town for half an hour. Cars and buses became stranded on the roads, which became covered with snow instead of the usual dust.

Nadal gets an easy draw, Djokovic doesn't

House lawmakers approve crackdown on 'sanctuary cities' in Florida
Fines for city council members who violate the ban or refuse to comply with federal immigration policies could climb up to $5,000. I said I never want to see this happen in the state of Florida", Metz said during his closing comments on the bill.

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.
