CONVENTIONAL wisdom would suggest that Temple athletic director Bill Bradshaw should be introducing his new football coach soon, perhaps as early as Wednesday or Thursday. The last time he had to do this, 2 years ago, it took 8 days. Steve Addazio left last Tuesday after two seasons to go to Boston College. Mark D'Onofrio, who was the defensive coordinator on North Broad Street for Addazio's predecessor, Al Golden, interviewed for the opening Tuesday. Sources familiar with the situation believe that he's the last person who'll be interviewed.
