Geoff COLLINS Head Coach Western Carolina '94 1st Season at Temple Geoff Collins accepted the head coaching position at Temple University on December 14, 2016, becoming the 27th head football coach in Owls’ history. Armed with 23 years of coaching experience, Collins has proven to be a driven leader who is not bashful about the word love. He has demonstrated a love for his players and they have reciprocated that passion in their actions and words. Collins’ creative spirit has paid dividends on and off the field. Whether devising original game-plans, creating new methods to teach, or splashy ways to pursue recruits, Collins’ ideas are mimicked throughout college football. He has been recognized as one of the leading assistant coaches in the nation numerous times and is the only coach to be a Broyles Award nominee, given to the nation’s best assistant coach, at three schools [FIU (2010), MSU (2014) and Florida (2015)]. Collins is an alumnus of Western Carolina University, where he played defensive back and linebacker. Collins has coached all over, beginning at his alma mater, and most recently working in the SEC at both Florida, where he helped the Gators to back-to-back SEC East Division Titles, and Mississippi State in the role of defensive coordinator. Over the course of his career, Collins has helped guide 31 of his student-athletes to careers in the National Football League. Collins first began at Florida in 2015, hired by Jim McElwain to be on his initial staff at the school. Collins’ opportunity to serve as defensive coordinator at Florida was his second defensive coordinator job in the SEC, as he held the same title at Mississippi State for two seasons. The Florida defense was relentless under the guidance of Collins, finishing the season ranked eighth nationally in 2015. His Gators’ defense was also ranked third in the SEC during that time, only allowing 310.2 yards per game. Collins’ defense also set a number of other records during his time in Gainesville, including being one of only seven FBS teams in the last 20 years to not allow a touchdown against three FBS Power 5 schools on the road, in a single season. In the 2015 season alone, Collins helped prepare three players who eventually earned first-team All-SEC honors, including CB Jalen “Teez” Tabor, DL Jon Bullard, and CB Vernon Hargreaves. Hargreaves was also a consensus first team All-American in 2015. In total, five of

Collins’ defensive players were selected in the 2016 NFL Draft; two first round selections (CB Vernon Hargreaves and S Keanu Neal) along with DT Jonathan Bullard (3rd), LB Antonio Morrison (4th), and DE Alex McCalister (7th), along with Brian Poole who started for the Falcons in the Super Bowl after joining Atlanta as a rookie free agent. The Florida team capitalized on the success of its defense in 2016, finishing 8-4 on the year and earning its second straight SEC East Division Title. The unit finished among the nation’s best in multiple categories - first in pass efficiency (92.87), second in pass defense (148.5), third in defensive scores (5), fourth in red zone defense (71.8), fifth in total defense (293.0), sixth in scoring defense (16.8 ppg), and seventh in first downs allowed (206). Collins also helped three of his players earn All-SEC selections in the 2016 season. Florida’s defensive unit developed seven more draft picks in 2017, including four in the first two rounds. Prior to his time at Florida, Collins was a member of the coaching staff at Mississippi State. Originally hired to serve as the linebackers coach and co-defensive coordinator for the 2011 season, Collins was promoted to the position of defensive coordinator in 2013. Mississippi State had tremendous success while he was on the coaching staff, most notably the 2014 season, when the Bulldogs when they were ranked #1 in the country for most of the season and finished with a 10-3 record. This 10win season was the best finish at the school in 15 years, and concluded with a berth in the Orange Bowl. Collins’ defense was dominant that season, producing the most sacks in the SEC (37), as well as the #1 ranked red zone defense and ninth ranked scoring defense in the country. The season prior, Mississippi State went 7-6 and defeated Rice in the Liberty Bowl, 44-7. Collins’ unit was one of the best in the SEC. In his first season as full-time defensive coordinator, his defense ranked among the SEC’s top five in a number of categories, including fourth in total defense (349.3 yards per game), fourth in rushing defense (144.2 yards per game) and fifth in passing defense (205.2 yards per game). He also held his last three opponents during the 2013 season to just 11.3 points per game. Continued on page 7

OwlSports.com In 2012, the Bulldogs finished the year 8-5 and made an appearance in the Gator Bowl. That year, Collins tutored DB Darius Slay, a second team All-SEC selection. Along with Slay, who was picked in the second round of the NFL Draft, Collins helped prepare a number of other Mississippi State players for careers in the NFL, including Jim Thorpe Award winner CB Jonathan Banks (2nd round), Will Redmond (3rd round), and DT Josh Boyd (5th round). During his first season on the staff, Mississippi State finished the season 7-6 as the Bulldogs went to the Music City Bowl, defeating Wake Forest, 2517. In Collins’ first season as a co-defensive coordinator for the Bulldogs, he helped mentor DT Fletcher Cox, a first team All-American and first team All-SEC selection in 2011. Cox was selected 12th overall in the first round of the NFL draft by the Philadelphia Eagles, and earned All-Pro honors in 2014 and 2015. Collins’ ability to mold a defense was evident well prior to his time in Mississippi State and Florida. Before coaching in the SEC, he sharpened his teeth as the defensive coordinator and linebackers coach at Florida International University in 2010. During that season, his defense was ranked first in the Sun Belt Conference in total defense, scoring defense, pass defense efficiency, and turnover margin. This, off of the prior year when the team was ranked 119th in total defense nationally. This dramatic turnaround led Collins to be named a finalist for the Broyles Award in 2010, an award for the top assistant in college football. Before joining the staff at FIU, Collins was a linebackers coach and recruiting coordinator under head coach George O’Leary at UCF for two seasons. In 2009, he was part of a staff the led the Knights to an 8-5 record and a berth in the St. Petersburg Bowl. Even though UCF did not make a bowl game in 2008, he had the defense ranked second in Conference USA in total and scoring defense. Collins also spent some time working at both the University of Alabama and Georgia Tech. In 2007, he worked at Alabama as the director of player personnel under head coach Nick Saban and had the #1 recruiting class in the country. That class included Mark Ingram Jr., the 2008 Heisman Trophy winner and the first-ever by an Alabama player. He spent the 2006 season at Georgia Tech as director of player personnel. Georgia Tech secured their best recruiting class in team history that year as well. Between the years of 2002 and 2005, Collins was the defensive coordinator at his alma mater Western Carolina. Collins’ defense was continually ranked near the top nationally at the FCS level while under his guidance. In 2005, the team was ranked first nationally in pass defense

and 18th in total defense. The team also led the So-Con conference in rushing defense for the first time in program history in that season. From 1999-2000, Collins served as a graduate assistant at Georgia Tech under O’Leary. During that time, the Yellow Jackets had a 25-12 record, including reaching three consecutive bowl games. In Collins’ last season at Georgia Tech he was promoted to tight ends coach under current Houston Texans’ head coach Bill O’Brien and the Yellow Jackets defeated the Stanford Cardinal in the 2001 Seattle Bowl, 2512. Collins got his chance at being a defensive coordinator at Albright College from 1997-1998. Before that, he was a linebackers coach for the Fordham Rams for the 1996 season. In 1995, he was an assistant coach for Franklin High School in North Carolina. He began he coaching career at his alma mater, Western Carolina University, contributing as a student assistant during the 1993 and 1994 seasons. Collins played college football at WCU as an outside linebacker and defensive back from 1989-1992. He totaled 194 career tackles during his four year career with the Catamounts. As a junior, he was the team’s fifth-leading tackler (68), while registering 6.0 tackles-for-loss. As a senior, he helped Western Carolina to a 7-4 record, totaling 62 total tackles and 5.0 tacklesfor-loss. The Conyers, Ga., native was born April 10, 1971. He and his wife, Jennifer (formerly Haynes), have one daughter, Astrid (one).

TO OUR FANS Dear Temple Fan: As a member of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA), Temple is responsible for exercising “institutional control” over its intercollegiate athletic program. Under this concept, the University is held accountable for the acts of anyone identified as a “representative of athletics interests.” By NCAA definition, a “representative of athletics interests” is any individual who is (a) a member of the institution’s athletics booster club, (b) has made contributions to the booster clubs or to the athletic department, (c) is involved in providing jobs for enrolled student-athletes, (d) has ever been involved with the Temple athletics program or (e) is otherwise involved in promoting the institution’s athletics program. Under NCAA legislation, “representative of athletics interests” are prohibited from any contact, including letters and telephone calls, for purposes of recruitment with prospective student-athletes, their relatives, legal guardians, teachers and coaches. Such contacts are to be initiated exclusively by authorized athletics department staff members only. If you receive a telephone call from a prospect or their relative(s), do not discuss the athletics program and refer them to the athletic department. Obviously, the perils of overzealous and misguided boosters are many. We request that “representatives of athletics interests” do not make recruiting contacts with prospective student-athletes at any time. No matter how well-meaning the communication, it has the potential to place our program in jeopardy of NCAA sanctions. Athletics representatives may NOT make special arrangements or provide any benefits to currently enrolled student-athletes, his or her parents, relatives or friends. Representatives of athletics interests are subject to NCAA legislation that requires member institutions to revoke or withhold privileges of any individual who has engaged in conduct that is determined, either by the University, the American Athletic Conference, or the NCAA, to be a violation of NCAA legislation, regardless of whether such violation results in the imposition of sanctions, and shall be subject to the revocation or withholding of any athletically related benefit or privilege, received by that individual from the University. Such benefit or privilege may include, without limitation, ticket privileges which may be withheld by the University for that period of time which the University, American Athletic Conference Conference or NCAA deems appropriate. The revocation of ticket privileges may result in an individual being denied admittance to any University hosted athletic event. If you have questions, contact Intercollegiate Athletics for clarification before taking any action. Should you wish to receive more information on applicable NCAA policies, Intercollegiate Athletics will be pleased to send you a free copy of the pamphlet “A Guide for Temple Alumni, Athletic Sponsors, and Representatives of Athletics Interests.” To obtain a copy, call 215-204-5668. We are grateful for your support and appreciate your attention to NCAA regulations regarding Temple prospective and enrolled student-athletes.

TEMPLE OWLS - ABOVE THE LINE Since he was first asked about depth charts and two-deeps, Geoff Collins has insisted that he doesn’t believe in them. He coaches his players to be “Above the Line” (ATL). Those who are ATL are ready to play and can see game action, while others work to get to that level. This season in place of a traditional two-deep that often omits some players who see action and lists others who seldom enter the game, Temple will list those players who are ATL (in numerical order by position). Those players who started the previous week will be printed in bold.

Englert earned a doctorate in educational administration from the University of California, Los Angeles. He also has a master’s degree from Pepperdine University and a bachelor’s degree from St. John’s College.

Richard M. ENGLERT President 41st Year at Temple

As Temple’s president, Englert has focused the university on its historic commitments: engaging with the city of Philadelphia; producing research that improves lives, including work on opioid abuse and traumatic brain injury; and energizing the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

Accessible. High quality. Engaged with the community. Affordable. Diverse. Those are the pillars of Richard M. Englert’s presidency. They are also the values he has championed at Temple University for more than 40 years. After serving Temple with loyalty and distinction in 16 different roles since 1976, Englert became president on July 21, 2016. Under his leadership, the university welcomed its largest and most academically qualified class of new students and broke records for freshman applications. It also began major campus renovations, highlighted by a state-of-the-art library. At the same time, Temple’s faculty gained unprecedented national recognition, and its student-athletes reached new levels of success on the field and off.

Most of all, as a lifelong educator, Englert takes every opportunity to empower Temple’s inspiring students and faculty. “Temple has proved that excellence in education, access, affordability, diversity and community engagement are not mutually exclusive,” Englert said. “That’s what we’ve done better than anyone else for more than 130 years. It is who we are and it is the dedication to our mission that will make Temple an even greater institution in the years to come.”

"I can say without reservation that there has never been a better time to be part of the Temple family, whether you are a student, faculty member, administrator or alumnus," Englert said. "We have a strong dedication to our mission and an unrelenting commitment to our students, our neighbors and our great city." Englert arrived at Temple as an assistant to the dean of the College of Education. Over the years, he has been provost and interim senior vice president for academic affairs, dean of the College of Education and vice president for administration, among many other roles. Since 1985, he has served as a professor in the College of Education.

Executive Vice Presidents

Throughout his career, Englert has always responded to Temple’s call. In recognition of his lifelong dedication, the Board of Trustees appointed him to the honorific role of university chancellor in 2012.

“President Englert has devoted his life to Temple University,” said Board of Trustees Chair Patrick J. O’Connor. ”Over the course of his 40-yearplus career at Temple, he has earned a reputation as an outstanding teacher, administrator and leader who always puts the needs of our students first.”

The traditional symbol of the University is the Temple T. Early in the administration of former president Peter J. Liacouras, he chose this particular version of a representational T which was created by students at the Tyler School of Art. The T is stylized, geometric and logo-like and yet maintains a basic, identifiable form—a simple T, but one which is at the same time both simple and complex. It is really a kind of optical illusion. Russell’s Rock When Temple football players exit the locker room for practice or on game days, they place their hands upon a large lump of coal referred to as “Russell’s Rock.” This tradition is linked to Temple founder Russell H. Conwell and his famous “Acres of Diamonds” lecture. The Owl The owl is the symbol and mascot for Temple University and has been since its founding in the 1880s. Temple was the first school in the United States to adopt the owl as its symbol. Not as popular a mascot as the eagle or hawk, the owl nevertheless has special meaning for students at a dozen other four-year colleges and seven two-year colleges as well. However, only Rice and Florida Atlantic play football at the Division I-A level. Story has it that the owl, a nocturnal hunter, was initially adopted as a symbol, because Temple University began as a night school for ambitious young people of limited means. Russell Conwell, Temple’s founder, encouraged these students with the remark: “The owl of the night makes the eagle of the day.”

Cherry & White Well known is the fact that the official colors of Temple University are cherry and white. Temple University was the first school in the nation officially to use cherry as one of its colors, certainly by the year 1888. The combination of red with white is quite common, but cherry with white is almost unique. Only one other school now uses cherry and white: Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, N.Y. Flags in Flight When Temple takes the field, it does so behind a trio of flags. Prior to each game, the coaching staff selects players to carry the United States, City of Philadelphia, and Temple University flags. The player selected to carrry the City of Philadelphia flag is from the City or surrounding area. The player selected to carr the University flag is one that best represents what the ideal Temple player is— tough and dedicated with a workman-like mentality. A trio leads the Owls onto the gridiron prior to every contest. Research and copy by George Edberg-Olson ‘49

Alma Mater

Onward with Temple, Hail! Alma Mater, Banners all unfurled; Honor, praise to Thee; Wide flung out We pledge our lives, standards, Our hearts in loyalty. Wisdom, Truth and To the winds they’re hurled. Virture Following our Founder Built our Temple great; To immortal Fame; Perseverence Making true his vision, conquers; Of a deathless name. Higher to create.

LINCOLN FINANCIAL FIELD FACTS

LINCOLN FINANCIAL FIELD Lincoln Financial Field, home to the National Football League’s Philadephia Eagles, is a prime destination for world-class entertainment, providing the highest quality sports and entertainment experiences for fans in a safe, clean and friendly environment. In addition to Temple Football’s home games, Lincoln Financial Field hosts 10 Eagles games each year and continues to showcase high-profile sporting events and unique experiences year-round. Since opening in August 2003, Lincoln Financial Field has hosted nearly 20 sold-out concerts, has welcomed some of the world’s most distinguished soccer clubs and also serves as the home to the historic Army-Navy game. Additionally, the stadium has hosted multiple NCAA Lacrosse Championships, as well as Monster Jam and many other marquee events. On August 13, 2003, the Philadelphia Eagles and Temple University announced a 15-year pact for the Owls to play their home football games at Lincoln Financial Field. An average of 24,137 fans per game witnessed the Cherry & White in its inaugural season at the venue, a 21 percent increase from the prior year’s average. In 2015, Temple set a record with an average of 44,158 spectators per game including a record home crowd of 69,280 on October 31 when the #21 Owls hosted #9 Notre Dame in Temple’s first-ever ranked vs. ranked game. Familiarly known as The Linc, it has a seating capacity of 69,596. The stadium is located in South Philadelphia on Pattison Avenue between 11th and 10th Streets, closer to the area’s stretch of Interstate 95 than to Pattison. In 2011, the stadium became powered with a combination of onsite wind, solar, and dual-fuel generated electricity, making it the world’s first major sports stadium to convert to self-generated renewable energy. Approximately $25 million was invested to build the system, saving the Eagles an estimated $60 million in energy costs. In August 2014, the Eagles completed a $125 million revitalization project to ensure that guests of Lincoln Financial Field are enjoying their in-stadium experience through enhanced convenience, comfort and connectivity.

EDBERG-OLSON HALL

Edberg-Olson Hall is the home of the Temple University football program. Officially dedicated on December 9, 2000, the facility was designed by AP3C Architects of Philadelphia. The building was engineered to not only support the football team’s functional requirements, but to enhance the experience through innovative design concepts. During the season, approximately 250 people will pass through its doors on a daily basis. In 2012, Edberg-Olson Hall underwent a $10 million upgrade with a 15,000-squarefoot expansion. The original 23,600-square-foot building contains team and coaches locker rooms, a training room, equipment facilities, coach’s offices, a players’ lounge, individual position meeting rooms, and a theater-style team meeting room. Opened in July 2012, the upgrade has a strength and conditioning area that expanded from 2,500 square feet to 10,000 square feet. The expansion also features an enlarged sports medicine office with hydrotherapy, a full-service academic support area, and a 3,500-square-foot team function room. An observation balcony runs the length of the building. It is the perfect complement to a gridiron landscape outside featuring over 100,000 square feet of Sprinturf and 24,000 square feet of Astroturf. Eight, 85-foot poles providing 85 candles of white rendition light line the perimeter of the complex. Powder-coated cyclone fences provide privacy. In 2014, Edberg Olson received a facelift. As part of a $1.5 million capital project that upgraded the locker rooms for all 19 Temple varsity sports, the football facility installed 125 new lockers and flatscreen televisions. In addituion, updated graphics adorn the walls throughout the hallways and in the weight room.
