Matt Rhule Named 2023 Graduation Speaker

May 15, 2023
By The Fletcher School

The Fletcher School is pleased to announce that Mr. Matt Rhule, Head Football Coach at the University of Nebraska, will deliver the commencement address at the graduation ceremony for the Class of 2023 on June 2.  

Mr. Rhule became head coach of the Nebraska Cornhuskers in November 2022, but he has dedicated his twenty-five-year, meaningful career to building programs and developing collegiate and professional athletes. Before taking the helm at Nebraska, he served as head coach for the Carolina Panthers and head coach for the football programs at Baylor University and Temple University. Mr. Rhule's coaching honors include the 2019 Sporting News National Coach of the Year, 2019 AFCA Region IV Coach of the Year, and 2019 Big 12 Coach of the Year. No stranger to the gridiron himself, he was also a linebacker for the Penn State Nittany Lions from 1994-1997.  

Here on campus, we are happy to know Matt, his wife, Julie, and their son, Bryant, as fellow Fletcher Falcons.  

We thank our Fletcher community for celebrating the Class of 2023!
