Report: Fran Dunphy Leaving Temple Job… Eventually

Looks like La Salle isn’t the only Big 5 program bringing in a new head coach.

Seth Davis says Temple’s Fran Dunphy will be on his way out, but not just yet:

Dunphy is headed into his 13th Temple season and coming off a pair of lukewarm campaigns. The Owls finished 17-16 this year with a first-round NIT loss to Penn State. They were 16-16 last season.

The longtime Penn coach took over on North Broad Street back in 2006 and brought six of his first seven Temple teams to the NCAA tournament, advancing only twice beyond the first round.

Ask most Temple fans and they’ll tell you, “it’s time.” Not sure if they’re happy about (reportedly) waiting another year it to happen, though.

      Maybe they can get William Cosby to coach women’s BBall.
      I heard he’s good with the ladies.

      Anyone know when his next trial is?

    Put him in the Bagster!

    Love how temple wasted another year with this lame duck loser. It’s a flat out disgrace how Dunphy keeps losing all the top local talent to psu

      Sounds like Fran Dunphy’s Caucasian protection card, is keeping him from losing his job.

        Oh wow, a minority pulling the race card. That’s never happened before

      This is all about his contract. 2018 season is the last year of his contract.

    Nothing on the Pete Carroll ‘situation’?

  • Dan Griffoni March 30, 2018 at 3:59 pm

    I’d sure like to Fran his Dunphy!

  • Cuz March 30, 2018 at 7:41 pm

    -With the current conference configuration, Villanova is the only Philadelphia-based team that can win a national title
    -Temple football has been helped by moving to the AAC, but the basketball has suffered
    -Temple and Uconn both need to join the A-10 if they want to see basketball flourish
    -Since getting to the Elite Eight in 2003, Phil Martelli has won one NCAA tourney game, Fran Dunphy has won two this decade. Why are St Joes fans ok with irrelevance?
    -Aaron McKie had court order restraining against him and lied about it when he tried to buy a gun back in 2008. The gun control activists and the feminists should be protesting, but woke, low-SAT Temple doesn’t care though

      There is a team from the Missouri Valley Conference in the Final Four right now. Gonzaga made the championship game last year. Wichita State and Butler also recently made the Final Four.

      McKie will be a joke as a coach but the hood bruwas will consider playing for him, which will be a huge improvement toward making Temple a bubble team again. Of course that leaves Temple right where they were during the Chaney years, except McKie probably can’t even outcoach first weekend teams.

  • Matter of time March 30, 2018 at 9:22 pm

    Before they’re all gone

  • Harold's Cat March 31, 2018 at 7:25 am

    I envisioned McKie as Brett Brown’s successor to coach the Sixers someday, and if he wasn’t it, then Dunphy, or Jay Wright.

    We are proud to announce that Anthony Gargano has officially tied Angelo in the morning slot. We knew this would happen and are excited it happened so quickly. Angelo is a good guy and does a great show. The Cuz, however, brings something knew and original to the table. The listeners wanted something new and the Cuz delivered.

      Cuz is tier 1. He’s a Philly guy. Total meat.

    • Never happen March 31, 2018 at 12:54 pm

      Not in this lifetime.

  • Eric BLEAKMAN March 31, 2018 at 10:17 pm

    McKie is a SPOOK-y convict which fits right into Norffff Phiwwey. Da Bruthas get their way or they march and burn. Pretty soon they will have everything.
