Temple’s football program has reportedly made its second head coaching hire of the winter.
The Owls previously hired Miami assistant coach Manny Diaz, but Mark Richt retired and the Hurricanes decided to bring him back as head coach.
So, Temple was forced to go through another head coaching search.
According to a report by FootballScoop, the Owls have their man.
Northern Illinois head coach Rod Carey is expected to be Temple’s next head coach.
