Temple has contacted Eagles QB coach about head-coaching job

Temple has contacted Eagles quarterbacks coach John DeFilippo about its vacant head-coaching job, according to a source.

"I don't know of his interest or of Temple's level of interest, but I know he has been contacted," the source said.

The Owls are looking to replace Matt Rhule, who was hired Tuesday as Baylor's head coach. DeFilippo, 38, is a product of Radnor High. His father, Gene, was a former athletic director at Villanova.

John DeFilippo is in his first year as the Eagles quarterbacks coach after serving as the Cleveland Browns' offensive coordinator in 2015. This is his 10th season as an NFL assistant. He also has spent seven years as a college assistant but has not been a head coach.

Temple defensive coordinator Phil Snow is someone the school plans to interview, a source said. Snow, according to two sources, would be interested in the job.
