When Dawn Bunting talks about football, John Bunting listens. For two years in the mid-1970s, Dawn, now the Rowan College women's basketball coach, played running back and outside linebacker for the San Diego Lobos of the Women's Professional Football League. Dawn, 38, also has coached field hockey and softball, and is not bashful about giving her husband some tips on football. "She could be a great football coach, no question about it," said John Bunting, 42, the former Eagles linebacker who now coaches football at Rowan.

John Bunting, the former Eagle and Glassboro State coach who is now on Dick Vermeil's staff with the St. Louis Rams, yesterday expressed mild interest in the vacant head football coaching position at Temple. "My lifetime goal is to become a Division I head coach," Bunting said by telephone from St. Louis, where he is helping the Rams to prepare for a Sunday game against visiting Carolina. "Whoever takes the Temple job will have to have a lot of energy, and a lot of connections in order for that program to get off of where it's been.

Early this month, NCAA Division I-A football coaches began signing high school players at a furious pace. Once the deals were done, the rest of college football started its serious recruiting. "We have no national signing date," Rowan College coach John Bunting said. "The bulk of our recruiting starts after the Division I's snap up the full-scholarship kids. We now put ourselves in the competition with the I- AA's, the Division II's and, obviously, the Division III's. " That Rowan, a Division III school - Division III schools don't give athletic scholarships - is competing against scholarship schools for players is a reflection of how far the program has come in five years under Bunting.

Even though Rowan College soon will begin conducting interviews for its vacant women's basketball coaching position, the way remains clear for former coach Dawn Bunting to return. Women's athletic director Joy Reighn confirmed that Bunting did not resign last month, but instead took a one-year leave of absence. Rowan intends to hire Bunting's replacement on a one-year basis. Bunting has until Feb. 1, 1994, to declare whether she will return, Reighn said. The permanent job will be left open until that time.

Moorestown's Lewis Burnham, one of the top football prospects in South Jersey, has made an oral commitment to North Carolina. He chose the Tar Heels over Iowa, Rutgers, Kentucky and West Virginia. According to NCAA rules, recruits can't sign letters of intent until Feb. 6. The 6-foot-5, 225-pound Burnham was recruited as a tight end. Last season, he started at offensive tackle before shifting to tight end for the season's final three games. "I went down there for a camp and really liked the campus," said Burnham, who has scored 1,210 on the SAT and plans to major in business.

University of Miami defensive tackle Bryan Pata was shot in the back of the head as he turned to walk away from an argument in his apartment complex, the Palm Beach (Fla.) Post reported yesterday. "He walked away from that, and the guy still put a bullet in the back of his head," family friend Adrenia Lynes said. "He was going to kill him all along. " Police still have no suspects. Noteworthy A spokesman for North Carolina said there is no update on its coaching situation, despite rumors that former Browns and University of Miami coach Butch Davis will take over for John Bunting, who was fired last month, but will finish out the season.

Ken Clarke, who was part of the Eagles' Super Bowl defense in 1980, has been hired as defensive line coach by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. This will be the first coaching job at any level for Clarke, who played 14 years as a defensive tackle in the NFL. He played 10 seasons with the Eagles (1978 to '87), one with Seattle ('88) and finished his career in Minnesota ('89 to '91). "It's a great opportunity. It doesn't come too often to guys who have never coached before," said Clarke, who lives in Voorhees, N.J. "(Bucs coach)

When John Bunting retired after 13 seasons as a pro linebacker, 11 with the Eagles, he expected big things, probably a coaching job in the NFL. He would find a spot as an assistant, do well at it, and who knows what the future might hold. But none of that happened. Glassboro State did. And four years as head coach at the New Jersey Athletic Conference school have proven to John Bunting that all your expectations can evaporate and everything can still work better than you had planned or hoped.

The young players on the Temple women's soccer team probably don't know the name Rollin Haffer. They probably don't realize that they would have no team without her. The soccer team, in its first year as anything other than a club, was created as part of the 1988 settlement of an eight-year-old lawsuit filed by Haffer, a former captain of the Temple women's badminton team, charging the university with violating Title IX sex-discrimination guidelines....

DALLAS - One guy you might expect to be critical of the Eagles' decision to make Juan Castillo their defensive coordinator would be the man Castillo replaced. But Sean McDermott had nothing but good things to say yesterday about the offensive line coach he worked with for 12 Eagles seasons. "Juan has worked extremely hard for an opportunity like this," McDermott said during a weekend break in Philadelphia from his job as the Carolina Panthers' new defensive coordinator. But isn't McDermott, dismissed last month after two seasons as Jim Johnson's successor, a little surprised to be replaced by somebody who hasn't coached defense since 1989 in a Texas high school?

Butch Davis will return to the college sidelines as coach at North Carolina, which is 1-9 and hasn't beaten a Division I-A team this season. He will replace the fired John Bunting, the school announced yesterday. The hiring had been widely expected the past week after Davis' name rose to the top of the list of candidates. Davis, 55, brings a reputation for orchestrating turnarounds - which is just what the struggling Tar Heels need. North Carolina ranks among the worst offenses and defenses in the country.

Citing an anonymous source, the Winston-Salem Journal reported on its Web site that former University of Miami Hurricanes and Cleveland Browns coach Davis had signed a contract with North Carolina.

Phil Longo knows the mentality. At La Salle, there's basketball, and then there's every other sport. Even after an off-season when it wasn't particularly favorable to be associated with the Explorers' basketball programs, Longo, in his first year as football coach, knows he'll always have to play second fiddle to hoops. "There's always that, 'We're La Salle. We're a Big Five school,' " Longo said. "We could win every game every year for the next 20 years, and we're still going to be a basketball school.

K.C. Keeler always had that sunglasses-on-a-cloudy-day sort of swagger. Delaware's second-year head football coach may have grown up in Emmaus, just south of Allentown, but when he played linebacker for the Blue Hens, he nicknamed himself Hollywood. "He always had a very confident way about him," said Bo Dennis, an old Delaware teammate. "He still does. He believes in himself. " Keeler didn't just back it up. He figured out in advance how it needed to be done. Right after Keeler's senior season, Dennis remembers watching the 215-pound linebacker methodically turn himself into something else - a faster, leaner defensive back.

Guy Morriss may be in the eye of a storm that has rocked Baylor University, a storm that has left debris all around town. But more than two decades after he played center for the only Eagles team to reach the Super Bowl, the university's new head football coach still doesn't look as if he gets knocked off his feet too easily. The other day, Morriss stood in the middle of Baylor's practice field, hands on hips, wearing a black sleeveless shirt in the middle of a Texas heat wave, chomping on his gum. The Bears lost their opener, 24-19, yesterday at home against Alabama-Birmingham.

Archie Stalcup is thankful for being named to succeed Bill Manlove as head football coach at La Salle. He's even more thankful - having served on Manlove's staff since football was restored at La Salle in 1997 - that the transition is seamless. "I think that was very important knowing how young the program is that we have here," Stalcup said yesterday after his promotion was announced. "It has just started to blossom the last two years. "I told people to make sure we didn't use the word replace, because no one can replace Bill Manlove.
