Like Punxsutawney Phil, former Panthers coach Matt Rhule spent six weeks in purgatory after asking for his shadow and the rest of his body to come home.

Now, suddenly, Rhule is everywhere. Talking and writing about football in a broad and seemingly concerted effort to get his name out there. Just like the college football season is winding down.

When Panthers owner David Tepper fired Rhule, one would think that, by quickly marketing Rhule for a coaching job, he would be in a better position to cut his buyout by completing a stellar college career. It seems Rhule isn’t getting the response he was hoping for.

Why else would he launch a whole media tour? The drum is playing. The flag is waving. He’s trying to get attention at a time when college programs are putting together their wish lists.

According to one expert observer, Rhule thought he would get the Nebraska or Wisconsin job. Now, he might just stick with Arizona State. Or maybe West Virginia, if those over 30 miles from me go deep because of a coach who owes them a balance and clearly needs to go.

Rhule has shown he can turn college programs around, quickly. Of course, if he takes anything other than the No. 1 job as a result of rebounding from failure in the NFL, he’ll undoubtedly look to flip another team, then move up to a bigger job.
