ESPN.com - NCF - Temple set to name Golden as new football coach
Al Golden will be named the new head football coach for Temple.
Temple is an interesting choice, and an interesting "learning ground".
Golden was (is) on the so-called "short list" as a possible replacement for Joe Paterno at Penn State. Currently serving as Virginia's Defensive Coordinator, Golden (36) played for the Nittany Lions 89-90 and coached in 2000.
Temple's former coach Ron Dickerson was a long time assistant coach under Paterno.
Penn State and Temple renew their intrastate rivalry next November in University Park. (the teams are scheduled to meet at the Linc in 2007)
Let's hope he can turn the team around - they have one more year of "independence" and they formally join the MAC in 2007
