Collins led Temple to a 15-10 record and two bowl appearances in his two-year tenure. No coach in Temple history won as many games in his first two seasons at the school.
Collins is from the Atlanta area, and has had two stints on the Georgia Tech coaching staff. Prior to his time at Temple, he also served as a defensive coordinator at the University of Florida, Mississippi State University, Florida International University and Western Carolina University.
