Those rumors fizzled out quickly.

Just a few days ago, it was reported that Carolina Panthers head coach Matt Rhule would be interested in a return to the college ranks if a position became available. Most notably, the former Baylor leader was thought to have his eye on the gig at Michigan if Jim Harbaugh left Ann Arbor for the NFL.

One reporter is putting that fire out, though. According to ESPN’s David Newton, Rhule doesn’t have any interest in leaving the professional ranks to take a job at the college level — even Michigan. Newton cited Rhule’s recent hire of Ben McAdoo to be the Panthers’ next offensive coordinator as further evidence the head coach is happy in Carolina.

Harbaugh has been rumored to have some interest in the NFL, though there’s been no real traction to that speculation. As a former successful head coach at the pro level, his name frequently comes up as a potential candidate.

Michigan just enjoyed its first B1G title under Harbaugh and its first ever appearance in the College Football Playoff. After a 12-2 year — which included a victory over Ohio State — it seems unlikely that the head coach would leave for the NFL.

It’s something to watch as the coaching carousel continues to turn.
