Rhule envisions 'bright new future' for Baylor

New Baylor head coach Matt Rhule says his program is "committed to getting the wrongs of the past corrected" and "a bright new future" for the Bears' program.

Mitch Sherman ESPN Staff Writer 

Baylor coach Matt Rhule prepared an extensive opening statement and primarily read from it to start at Big 12 media days. Easy to see that it's a bit harrowing to be in his position. Rhule referenced the sexual-assault scandal at the school, saying that he's confident changes will make Baylor "better and stronger." But he said he will not comment on specifics of the continuing investigation.
