CB Rock Ya-Sin fits the Colts zone heavy system. Ya-Sin has the physical traits to disrupt WRs at the line of scrimmage, and he will tackle in the run game. The Temple product can play outside the numbers in the Colts two-deep and three-deep coverage schemes.

No running backs ran the 40-yard dash in under 4.4 seconds at the NFL combine on Friday. Oklahoma State's Justice Hill ran the fastest time, putting up a 4.40, with Temple's Ryquell Armstead (4.45), Florida's Jordan Scarlett (4.47) and Ohio State's Mike Weber (4.47) following Hill. Top-ranked running back Josh Jacobs has a groin injury and did not compete in on-field workouts, but his former Alabama teammate Damien Harris ran a 4.57 in the 40.

Sources: Temple to hire Northern Illinois' Carey

Rod Carey, who led Northern Illinois to the Mid-American Conference title last season, has agreed to become the next head football coach at Temple, sources confirm to ESPN.

Sources: Temple is expected to name Northern Illinois' Rod Carey as its next coach. The Philadelphia Inquirer first reported the impending agreement. A deal is nearing completion and should be finalized barring a late change. Wisconsin offensive coordinator Joe Rudolph also was strongly considered. Carey is 52-30 in six years at NIU. An official announcement could come Friday.

SOURCE: Miami is hiring Temple's Manny Diaz as its next coach. The Athletic first reported the deal. Very quick work by Miami to bring back its defensive coordinator, who left just weeks ago.

Temple coach Manny Diaz spoke with Miami today about the Hurricanes' head coaching vacancy, according to a source. Diaz, a Miami native who had been Hurricanes defensive coordinator, would provide continuity if he returns. He has a $4 million buyout so not ideal but Mark Richt's decision surprised a lot of people. Bringing back Diaz makes sense if Miami can pull it off financially.
