Owls get QB coach

Posted: February 14, 2012

ON NATIONAL signing day, when asked about his vacant offensive coordinator position, Temple football coach Steve Addazio said he was looking to bring someone in who could work with the quarterbacks. He wasn't lying.

Sources have confirmed an OwlScoop report that former Boston College offensive coordinator Kevin Rogers will be joining the Temple staff as quarterbacks coach. Rogers took a leave of absence for medical reasons two games into last season with BC and did not return.

He had spent the previous five seasons as the QB coach with the Minnesota Vikings, where he worked with Brett Favre.

Rogers has been in the profession for more than 3 decades, most of that at the collegiate level. That includes an 8-year stint at Syracuse, where he coached Donovan McNabb.

Rogers' son, Kevin, was a backup quarterback at Villanova in the late 1990s.

Former BC wide receivers coach Ryan Day, a Temple assistant in Al Golden's first season (2005), is also coming back to North Broad Street to be the co-offensive coordinator with Matt Rhule, one of two holdovers from Golden's staff.

Rhule was the OC from 2008 to '10, and last season coached the tight ends and was the recruiting coordinator as the Owls brought in what is believed to be one of their top classes.

Temple has not yet announced any of the moves.
