PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Matt Rhule appears ready to become the next football coach at Temple.
The Owls made an offer to Rhule to become the Owls' head coach Friday, a person familiar with the decision told The Associated Press.
Rhule, New York's assistant offensive line coach, was set to coach the Giants on Sunday at Atlanta.
Rhule formerly spent six seasons as an Owls assistant and was considered the frontrunner from the start to take over for Steve Addazio, who left for Boston College last week. The school had no immediate comment. However, players took to Twitter late Saturday night to spread the word Rhule had accepted the offer.
