Temple coaching search: Owls interested in Todd Bowles

Rich Schultz

Philadelphia Eagles defensive coordinator Todd Bowles might return to his alma mater, as the 49-year-old is reportedly interviewing with the Temple Owls for their vacant head coaching job Monday.

The Temple Owls could be interested in hiring their next head coach from the pro team in town, as they're reportedly looking at Philadelphia Eagles defensive coordinator Todd Bowles in seeking replacement for Steve Addazio.

Sources indicate that the school has contacted Bowles, with some saying that the coach was set to interview with the school as soon as Monday.

[Note by JasonB, 12/10/12 3:04 PM EST ] The Inquirer has confirmed that Bowles will interview with Temple today.

Bowles played safety for Temple before beginning a seven-year NFL career in 1986. However, as a coach, he's mainly stuck to the NFL ranks, spending a year as defensive coordinator for Morehouse and two at Grambling State before taking a pro job in 2000 with the New York Jets. Bowles was interim head coach for the Miami Dolphins after they fired Tony Sparano last season, and has served as Andy Reid's top defensive assistant since he fired Juan Castillo from the role earlier this season. The Eagles' defense has been pretty bad since Bowles' promotion, but its hard to say how much credit he deserves for the unit's sloppy play.
