|If the Carolina Panthers proved one thing this week, it’s that they definitely have a lot of faith in new head coach Matt Rhule, and we know that, because Carolina gave him what’s believed to be the largest contract ever given to a first-time NFL coach. To steal Rhule away from Baylor, the Panthers made the long-time college coach an offer he couldn’t refuse. According to ESPN Rhule was given a seven-year deal that could be worth up to $70 million if he meets every incentive in his contact. The Panthers gave Rhule so much money that the Giants took a pass on Tuesday when they were given a chance to match the offer. Rhule’s new salary instantly makes him the sixth-highest paid coach in the NFL. For a list of the Top Ten paid head coaches in the NFL click here.|
