New York Jets write letter of commendation to Temple Owls head coach

Chalk this one up as a feel-good story to come out of the New York Jets. New York’s general manager, John Idzik, wrote a letter of commendation to Matt Rhule, coach of the Temple Owls.

Idzik was very complimentary of three players who came from Temple University: Jaiquawn Jarrett, Muhammad Wilkerson and Michael Campbell. He commended Rhule on molding fine young men.

It’s been a rough few days for Temple athletics, having cut seven sports last week. Likewise, it’s rare that any positive stories about the Jets make the national media. Idzik’s letter is good press for both reeling programs.
