Baylor football head coach Matt Rhule, who has reportedly been pursued by the New York Jets, is staying in Waco, Texas, per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

Rhule had been connected to the Jets, who fired head coach Todd Bowles at the end of the 2018 season. On Wednesday, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reported that Rhule was "in the mix," and Dan Graziano of ESPN.com said Rhule interviewed with New York on Sunday.

Jessica Morrey of KCEN-TV happened to catch up with Rhule at a stoplight Wednesday and asked him if he was leaving.
