The most important verbal commitment Baylor has received in recent memory

“I’m not leaving.”

That was the statement from Baylor Vice President and Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Mack Rhoades to David Smoak and Paul Catalina on Tuesday during his weekly segment on You Make The Call on ESPN Central Texas after his name emerged as a serious candidate for the University of Southern California’s Athletic Director position.

Mack Rhoades first hire at Baylor was head football coach Matt Rhule in December of 2016.

The time it took Rhoades to make the statement following the rumors wasn’t as exasperating for Baylor faithful as it would have been if Matt Rhule, Scott Drew, Kim Mulkey or any other head coach in the department had made a similar announcement surrounding their futures after similar rumors, though the decision for Rhoades to lock his sights on Baylor could be as vital to Baylor as any future decisions made by his coaches .

Thank you Mr. Rhodes for coming out with an example of real quality leadership and support for Baylor. Once the rumor was started you wasted no time affirming your commitment to Baylor. This is the kind of example I hope our often called football coach will learn from. Stepping up and quickly stating your commitment to Baylor means ALOT to the Baylor Nation. We'll see if Coach Rhule is watching & learning or will he allow the rumors to fly while he gives us some excuse for taking a phone call. Trust, support, commitment run both ways Coach.

As far as CMR goes, don't hold your breath in this regard.

Guessing Mack will get a nice salary bump out of this without being a serious candidate. Well played!
