Confirmed: UM Canes DC Mark D'Onofrio has withdrawn his name from consideration for Temple head-coaching job

Mark D'Onofrio is staying.

I just got it confirmed from someone close to the situation. D'Onofrio has pulled his name from consideration for the head-coaching job at Temple.

So, it appears that if reports about D'Onofrio and other finalist Matt Rhule are correct, Rhule would be the favorite to replace departed Temple coach Steve Addazio, who left Temple to take the job at Boston College.

The UM staff, it seems, will be in tact for 2013 -- unless news materializes in the next few weeks or after the NFL season.
