Collins spent the last two season as the defensive coordinator for the Florida Gators. Before that, he was the defensive coordinator at Mississippi State. All told, he has over 20 years of coaching experience.
This hire got the approval of Temple alum and big fan, ESPN’s Kevin Negandhi.
Collins brings the same type of energy that Rhule carried. They have connections. Smart move by Temple AD Pat Kraft https://t.co/rnb7ViC6uP
