Once believed to be the heir apparent to Daryll Clark, junior quarterback Kevin Newsome has left the Penn State program and is likely to transfer, multiple media outlets reported Thursday. Newsome declined to comment when reached by phone Thursday. Penn State sports information director Jeff Nelson did not have an update on Newsome's status with the team. A highly touted prospect out of Hargrave Military Academy, Newsome never lived up to his potential at Penn State. He served as Clark's backup as a freshman in 2009, and was beaten out for the starting job by then-true freshman Rob Bolden last season.

Temple has a new role for Kevin Newsome: ballcarrier. The senior moved from quarterback to H-back in March before suffering a shoulder injury during spring drills. Since then, Chris Coyer, another former quarterback, has established himself as the Owls' reliable pass-catching H-back/tight end. So Newsome will have a different role. "I think we are going to try to play Kevin more as a running back, more of a tailback type of body if he can do it," Temple coach Matt Rhule said. "That [H-back]

Temple coach Steve Addazio said he does not know whether quarterback Kevin Newsome will see time at wide receiver Saturday against Penn State. At least, Addazio will not reveal his plans publicly. But it's obvious that the Owls don't want to do anything to stymie the Penn State transfer's growth at quarterback. "You want him playing quarterback for you because in a blink someone goes down," Addazio said. "All of a sudden, you are one snap away from playing in the game. " But the junior, who has yet to play at Temple, asked to be switched to wideout or safety after a 36-27 setback to Maryland on Sept.

Take those fingers off the overreaction button, at least, for now. Temple reserve quarterback Kevin Newsome is taking some snaps with the first unit in practice partly because backup Juice Granger is out with a sprained ankle. However, Owls coach Steve Addazio has not ruled out playing the Penn State transfer in Saturday's game against Cincinnati at Lincoln Financial Field. "I don't know that yet," Addazio said Tuesday. "He's taking a bunch of reps this week. He's got a long way to go, but he's certainly moving the needle.

The Kevin Newsome experiment is on hold. The Temple senior, who was moved from quarterback to H-back last week, will miss most of this spring's drills with a shoulder injury. The 6-foot-2, 231-pounder sprained his AC joint after hauling in a pass on March 23. "He bought into the move," coach Matt Rhule said of the position switch. "I just wish he could be going right now. But at the same time, he made a great catch and hurt his shoulder. "But he will be ready to go. " Rhule added that Newsome "will give us a chance to be a weapon there, be versatile and contribute to the team.

Although Penn State has yet to issue a report or prognosis on the head injury suffered by freshman quarterback Rob Bolden, the Nittany Lions Monday night described Bolden as "probable" for Saturday night's game against Michigan at Beaver Stadium. Penn State also listed Bolden as the No. 1 quarterback for the game, with redshirt sophomore Matt McGloin and sophomore Kevin Newsome sharing the No. 2 spot. Bolden took a blow to the head in the second quarter Saturday against Minnesota and sat out the rest of the game.

Penn State coach Joe Paterno announced Wednesday night that freshman Robert Bolden will be the starting quarterback in Saturday's season opener against Youngstown State at Beaver Stadium. It marks the first time in Paterno's 45-year tenure as head coach that a true freshman will start the opening game. The 6-foot-3, 221-pound Bolden, from Orchard Lake, Mich., beat out sophomores Kevin Newsome and Matt McGloin for the honor of starting the opener. But Paterno indicated that Newsome or McGloin, or both, will see action on Saturday.

FORMER PENN STATE quarterback Kevin Newsome has given Temple a verbal commitment that he intends to transfer, sources told the Daily News . Newsome took part in spring practice with the Nittany Lions last year but left the program in August. He will have 2 years of eligiblity, and can play immediately because he did not play last season. The Owls' starter is Chris Coyer, who also has 2 years left on North Broad Street. He took over late in the season and looked impressive running a similar spread offense to the one Steve Addazio ran as the coordinator at Florida.

Kevin Newsome has quit the Temple football team. The Penn State transfer, who suffered a sprained shoulder in March, is expected to graduate from Temple this summer and, according to a source close to the situation, will not play this fall. The 6-foot-2, 231-pound Newsome, a standout high school quarterback from Virginia, was expected to contribute at H-back this season. Newsome, recruited as a quarterback, left Penn State in August 2011. He was out of football for a year while attending Tidewater (Va.)

IT WAS NEWS when dual-threat quarterback Kevin Newsome announced he was going to Penn State in 2009. And it was news when he transferred to Temple after two seasons. But things turned out to be just as frustrating for him on North Broad Street as they were in Happy Valley. So now comes the news that he's no longer a member of the Owls' team, either. Which means his career is over. The possibilities were always there. But for whatever reasons, it never happened. The Virginia native - who got on the field sparingly last season for Steve Addazio - had been switched to H-back by new coach Matt Rhule, who was the recruiting coordinator when Newsome made the move to come here.

ELIZABETH, N.J. - Of course, there are no guarantees. College football just doesn't work that way. Still, there is plenty of excitement at Temple surrounding Wednesday's national signing day, the first day that recruits can sign binding national letters of intent. Perhaps that biggest expected addition for the Owls' faithful is Elizabeth High's heralded quarterback, P.J. Walker. The 6-foot, 205-pounder was the Newark Star-Ledger's New Jersey state offensive player of the year.

Without a single scholarship offer from a Football Bowl Subdivision (Division I-A) university, quarterback Matt McGloin walked on at Penn State in 2008 trying to fulfill a dream and show all the coaches who passed on him that they were wrong. On Saturday, the conclusion of his fifth season in the program, McGloin will run out of the tunnel at Beaver Stadium for the last time, having amassed statistics and records that rank him with some of the best quarterbacks the Nittany Lions have ever had. And no, he hasn't forgotten all the doubters, the constant uncertainty for two seasons about whether he or Rob Bolden would play, and the people who wanted to drum him off the team after his five-interception nightmare in the Outback Bowl.

WHAT TEMPLE football could use right now is a win. It's never as simple as that, but . . . Not much was expected from the Owls this season, in their first year back in a BCS conference. Then they won their first two Big East games and everyone got excited. Since then, they've lost four straight, by a bunch, including three against teams that have a combined four losses. They've had injuries, some to key guys. They lack depth. They've had quarterback issues. They've been inconsistent.

DURING A FOURTH straight loss of 24 points or more, this time a 34-10 drubbing at the hands of Cincinnati, Temple quarterback Chris Coyer was benched at halftime for Clinton "Juice" Granger. Temple coach Steve Addazio, who said he has been looking at the "body of work" when it comes to picking his starting quarterback, will now have a three-man race in practice this week among Coyer, Granger and Kevin Newsome to see who takes the first offensive snap against Army on Saturday. Before being pulled, Coyer was 5-for-16 for 56 yards and an interception, with 34 yards rushing on six carries.

There's a battle for Temple's quarterback position heading in Saturday's game at Army. Owls coach Steve Addazio said Monday that Chris Coyer, Juice Granger, and Kevin Newsome would compete for the starting job during practice. "At the end of the week, I will look at the whole picture, the body of work, the last game," Addazio said Monday during a teleconference with Big East coaches. "And then, I will look at this week's practice. However we decide to go, the other guys will be right there.
