Derrek Thomas, a two year contributor at defensive back for the Owls, is leaving Philadelphia for Waco, Texas. He announced on Instagram that he'll be playing for Baylor next season. You may recall that Matt Rhule, the Bears' head coach, left Temple for his current position. (Similar to Cordell Hudson leaving Syracuse to join forces with his former head coach, Scott Shafer, now at MTSU).
Thomas was hurt for a large part of the year, but still managed to intercept a pass and break up five more.
