Baylor football coach Matt Rhule completed his coaching staff with the addition of former Temple quarterbacks coach Glenn Thomas.
Thomas will also coach quarterbacks at Baylor. During his two seasons at Temple, the Owls won 20 games and the offense improved its production from 366.7 yards per game in 2015 to 413.6 yards in 2016.
Before coaching at Temple under Rhule, Thomas served seven seasons for the NFL’s Atlanta Falcons. From 2012-14, he was the Falcons quarterbacks coach where he helped Matt Ryan earn two Pro Bowl appearances.
Thomas has Texas ties as he coached at Midwestern State from 2001-07. He is a native of Eastland and a 1998 Texas Tech graduate.
Rhule also announced position assignments for the rest of his coaching staff, including defensive coordinator Phil Snow, co-offensive coordinator and wide receivers coach Matt Lubick, co-offensive coordinator and running backs coach Jeff Nixon, defensive backs coach Francis Brown, offensive line coach George DeLeone, tight ends coach Joey McGuire, defensive line coach Elijah Robinson, and linebackers coach and recruiting coordinator Mike Siravo.
Rhule’s support staff includes offensive analyst Shawn Bell, director of player personnel Evan Cooper and associate athletic director for high school relations David Wetzel.
“I am excited to get our coaches in place and begin building for the 2017 season,” Rhule said. “This staff is full of experienced, talented coaches who will develop our young men to be the best that they can be in the classroom, on the football field and in the community.”
Rhule’s first staff has a combined 146 years of collegiate coaching experience, 33 years of coaching in the state of Texas and 27 years of NFL experience.
