Temple University Head Football Coach Matt Rhule announced the addition of five coaches to his staff, including First Colonial graduate Brandon Noble. In the 2012 season, Noble was the defensive line and special teams coach at Coastal Carolina, where he also recruited The 757.
Prior to coaching under Head Coach Joe Moglia at Coastal Carolina, Noble spent the 2011 season coaching under Moglia for the Omaha Nighthawks of the UFL. Noble also spent four seasons (2006-08 and 2010) as an assistant coach at West Chester University in Pennsylvania, working with the linebackers and the defensive line. Noble spent seven seasons in the NFL, including three with the Washington Redskins (2003-05) and four with the Dallas Cowboys (1999-2002). He played his college ball at Penn State.
“We are excited to welcome Brandon Noble and his family home to Southeastern Pennsylvania,” Coach Rhule said in a press release. “Brandon will bring technical expertise and experience that he has accumulated throughout his college and professional playing careers, as well as his collegiate and professional coaching careers. Brandon brings strong ties to both our local communities as well as the Virginia Beach area which will benefit us in our recruiting efforts.”
Noble had been recruiting the region since his arrival at Coastal Carolina. In the 2012 class, the Chanticleers brought in Indian River defensive end Rod Holder, and Noble had already obtained a verbal commitment from Bethel safety Nicholas Clark in the 2013 class.
National Signing Day is February 6, and there’s still work to be done in nailing down commitments from the current senior class. Expect to see Coach Noble recruiting the region for Temple immediately. There are a number of prospects in the region that the previous staff had already been recruiting. Wide receiver Romond Deloatch of Phoebus High School committed to Temple in the 2012 recruiting class and was a freshman starter for the Owls last season.
