Paulhill, Owls part ways

Fifth-year senior defensive lineman Shahid Paulhill, who was expected to start  this season, is no longer a member of Temple’s football team.         

“Shahid has decided not to come back for a fifth year,” coach Matt Rhule said.

Rhule was asked if Paulhill is gone for disciplinary reasons.

“It was just our way of life,” Rhule said. “We were holding guys to a high standard. Some guys want to do it. Some guys don’t.

“We love Shahid. He’s been here for a long time. We are hoping he graduates. But he just wasn’t ready to live the way we want him to live.”
