Temple set to name Golden as new football coach
PHILADELPHIA -- Virginia defensive coordinator Al Golden will become the new Temple football coach, a school official told The Associated Press on Monday.
The official spoke on condition of anonymity because an announcement is not scheduled until a Tuesday news conference.
Golden will be the latest coach to try and turn around decades of futility. Bobby Wallace, whose Owls (0-11) had their first winless season since 1959, announced in October that he would not be back.
