Temple set to replace Dunphy with former Owl McKie in 2019

PHILADELPHIA (AP) Fran Dunphy will coach Temple for one more season before stepping down for assistant Aaron McKie to take over in 2019.

Dunphy took over for retired Hall of Fame coach John Chaney in 2006 and has led the Owls to seven NCAA Tournaments. The Owls, who play in the American Athletic Conference, missed the postseason last season and were bounced in the first round of the NIT this year.

McKie starred at Temple under Chaney and played 13 seasons in the NBA. McKie scored 1,650 career points with the Owls, averaged 17.9 points and led Temple to the Elite Eight in 1993.
