Temple University may not have to go far to fill its vacant head football coaching position.

According to the Daily News on Friday, sources indicate that former offensive coordinator Matt Rhule -- who spent six years on the Owls' staff before leaving this season to take a post with the New York Giants -- can be named to the position as early as Monday.

Rhule is believed to be one of only two men considered for the post, along with former Temple defensive coordinator Mark D'Onofrio, who left with Al Golden when the latter became Miami-Florida head coach.

Steve Addazio, who finished 13-11 in his two seasons as head coach, departed to take the same job at Boston College on Dec. 4.
