For new Baylor head coach, Matt Rhule, it was a great day.

For high school student, Matt Rhule, today quickly took a turn.

The Temple Owls coach accepted the Baylor head coaching job and some fans took to Twitter to tell the now former American coach exactly how they felt by tweeting him at the account @mattrhule.

What they didn’t realize is that @mattrhule is the high school Matt Rhule, who is focusing on term papers, not contract term sheets.

The high schooler quickly decided that this was the opportune time to have some fun, informing his new “team” that he would be making some lineup changes for the Bears upcoming bowl game against Boise State.

While the younger Rhule had some fun with it, odds are he just wants to get back to snapchatting his friends and stop defending the fact that he’s not a middle-aged college football coach that took a better job.

Good for the kid for having a sense of humor about the whole thing and if you want to send the new Bears coach some, um, choice words or well-wishes, you can find him @CoachMattRhule.
