After spending his Monday meeting with Temple officials, and his Tuesday being linked to an assistant coaching job at Texas, the Philadelphia Inquirer is reporting Wednesday that former Florida offensive coordinator Steve Addazio will be the next head football coach at Temple.

The Owls were in the market for a new head coach after Al Golden left to take the open position at Miami replacing the fired Randy Shannon.  Steve Addazio was openly fired by Florida, but when Will Muschamp was hired as Urban Meyer's replacement it was clear the future of the Gators included a new offensive coordinator.  

Addazio began looking for other positions, quickly lining himself with the opportunity to make the move to a head coaching job.  Tuesday's reports of Temple looking at more candidates and Texas' interest in Addazio's services made it appear like Temple was quickly out of the picture.  Clearly, someone in Philadelphia liked what they heard earlier in the week.

The report from the Inquirer says an official announcement is expected as soon as Thursday.

Steve Addazio was a great offensive line coach wherever he has been and will bring some toughness to the Temple offensive line.  I hope he leaves the play calling to someone else.  As an offensive coordinator he was predictable and not creative.  He should hire a good oc.

This is great news for Gator fans! Great Christmas Gift!

For any Temple fans out there, good luck. Addazio looked lost most of the time on the Gator sidelines as offensive coordinator and was a terrible play caller. He didn't know what he was doing in my opinion and never made any adjustments in the game. Kept to the same play calls, most dive plays up the middle and one could say he was a major reason for Uf's dissapointing season.

Maybe he can get some good coordinators to help him out, I wish you guys luck

Hey Cane, how can anybody from the "u" call anybody felons.  Your school has the biggest thug reputation in the history of college football.  All cane fans should never comment on another team when it comes to criminals.  When 2 Live Crew roamed your sidelines and gave bounties to players the you should have no comment.

So Miami hires Al Golden, and Temple does UFelons a huge favor and takes Addazio off their hands.

Merry Christmas, UFelons.  Always, the U.

Good luck with that.  At UF, Addazio's offense was unimaginative, boring, and he seemed incapable of making adjustments once the players hit the field.  I do not think he utilized his players properly and his game plan for the most part was poor. I expect Temple will see a huge drop in their team as long he has the reins.  Sorry to burst anyone's bubble, but that's Addazio's MO

This is interesting. Al Golden did a great job here turning around a dormant program.  They play in an NFL stadium. They play in a huge market. You can win here. We shall see how he does.
