Temple Basketball: Jay Bilas Names Fran Dunphy As One of His "Most Under-appreciated Coaches"

ESPN's Jay Bilas compiled a list this week of the guys he sees as the most under-appreciated and under-valued head coaches in college basketball. Among them was Temple Owls head man Fran Dunphy.

Fran Dunphy, Temple: Dunphy is not widely recognized as being among the great coaches in the game because he goes about his work quietly and shies away from the limelight. Dunphy is an old-school coach that is a teacher first, and his teams always defend and are disciplined. No reasonable basketball person can disagree that Dunphy is a great coach. And an undervalued one.

The Atlantic 10 is pretty well represented as a conference in Bilas' list with both Chris Mack of Xavier and Chris Mooney of Richmond also mentioned.
