College coaching veteran Phil Snow will become Temple's new defensive coordinator, sources confirmed Monday.
The California native spent the last three seasons as Eastern Michigan's defensive coordinator and defensive backs coach. Snow, 57, replaces Chuck Heater, who left to become the defensive coordinator at Marshall. Heater reportedly was not offered the coordinator's job with the Owls after head coach Matt Rhule was hired last month.
Snow comes to Temple with 17 years of coaching experience, including stops in the NFL and the Pac-10.
