PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The Temple Owls are winding down their first spring workouts under new head coach Matt Rhule. They will cap off the spring sessions on Saturday afternoon when they play their annual Cherry and White game at the Edberg-Olson Football Complex at 10th and Diamond.
“Things have gone really well,” Rhule tells KYW Newsradio. “We’ve been able to remain healthy and they’ve really bought in to what we’re doing. It’s a little bit different than what they are used to, but they’ve kind of embraced it and run with it.”
The Owls are coming off a 4-7 season. Rhule, who spent several years on North Broad Street as an assistant before leaving for the NFL, returned in the offseason to replace Steve Addazio as head coach. Addazio left to become the head coach at Boston College.
As with just about any team, discussion always starts with who will be under center. Rhule says they have a lot of options at quarterback.
