Owls hire former St. Louis Rams TE coach

Temple announced the hiring of Frank Leonard as its tight ends coach on Wednesday.

Leonard was a college assistant coach for 24 years and most recently spent the past three seasons as the NFL's St. Louis Rams tight ends coach. He also spent three seasons (2004-06) as a special assignment scout for the New England Patriots.

"We're very excited to have Frank and his family join the Temple football family," Addazio said in the statement  "Frank and I have known each other for 30 years.  We were college teammates [at Central Connecticut State] and started our coaching careers together at Western Connecticut under Paul Pasqualoni.

"Frank is a tremendous fundamental teacher and has great energy and passion for the game. His wealth of experience for the NFL and the collegiate level will be a valuable asset for our players, coaching staff and university."
