Although some Temple assistant coaches are likely to join Matt Rhule at Baylor, an Owls spokesman said Wednesday that all of them are expected to coach in the Military Bowl against Wake Forest on Dec. 27 in Annapolis, Md.

One source said that many of the defensive coaches are expected to join Rhule at Baylor.

On Twitter, defensive lineman Devon Still, a Houston Texans defensive end who is on injured reserve, congratulated defensive line coach Elijah Robinson: "Welcome to Texas @coachMattRhule & @CoachRobinsonTU! You guy changed the culture of Temple football & I can't wait to see the same at Baylor."

A former Penn State player, Still is a Camden native who has a close association with Temple.

As for the head coaching search, a person familiar with the process said that the Temple administrators were floored by the number of strong candidates who have expressed interest in the job.

On Tuesday, Temple athletic director Patrick Kraft said the school would not rush into the decision. On Wednesday, a source said it wouldn't be surprising if the decision was made within two weeks.

High school players can sign letters of intent beginning Feb. 1, so the Temple administrators realize that time is of the essence.
