Temple coaching search: Eagles DC Todd Bowles interviewed last night

Rich Schultz

The Owls are looking to gain some stability with their football program, and have interviewed Todd Bowles in hopes he has what it takes.

The Temple Owls are searching for a new head coach to direct their football program to greatness. On Tuesday night, the Owls interviewed Todd Bowles, the current defensive coordinator of the Philadelphia Eagles, according to CSN Philly.

Bowles went to Temple and starred there as a defensive back between 1982-1985 before playing in the NFL for the Washington Redskins and San Francisco 49ers, where he won a Super Bowl in 1987.

Bowles hasn't been a head coach at any level, but has enjoyed good success as an assistant coach just about everywhere he's been. Unfortunately, his least successful spot is his current one, although how much of that can be laid at Bowles' feet is certainly debatable.

Other known candidates include Notre Dame defensive coordinator Bob Diaco and New York Giants assistant offensive line coach Matt Rhule.

Temple is in the midst of a rebuilding effort after rejoining the Big East in 2012, going 4-7 overall.
