The Owls are seeking a replacement for Steve Addazio, who left Dec. 4 for Boston College. D'Onofrio and Rhule coached together at Temple from 2006 to '10 under former Owls coach Al Golden.

Temple's new football coach, Al Golden, yesterday named former Columbia assistant Mike Siravo as the Owls' recruiting coordinator and defensive assistant. The 29-year-old Siravo also will serve as secondary or linebackers coach. "I had the privilege of working with Mike Siravo while at Boston College," said Golden, who was the Eagles' linebackers coach from 1997 to '99. "I told him before I left BC that I hoped we would have the opportunity to work together in the future. " A linebacker at Boston College, Siravo joined the Eagles as a walk-on in 1994 and later earned a scholarship.

All of a sudden, Penn State coach Joe Paterno was referring to quarterback Tony Sacca as "My buddy, Tony. " The feud that has made so many waves in Happy Valley finally appears to be over. The overly criticized, often maligned Sacca - playing with sore ribs - lit up the Giants Stadium skies last night, passing for a school record five touchdowns as the souped-up Nittany Lions defeated defending national co- champion Georgia Tech, 34-22, in the Kickoff Classic. Sacca, of Delran, N.J., who was selected the game's Most Valuable Player, completed 13 of 24 passes for 206 yards as Penn State stamped itself as a legitimate national contender before a record sellout crowd of 77,409.

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.

Brandon Chudnoff had his eye on Temple football, but wasn't sure how much his interest was being reciprocated. Then came Tuesday night, and the start of a story he will tell for life. The doorbell rang at the Chudnoff residence, not far from Grant and Academy roads in the Far Northeast, and Brandon's dad, Michael, went to respond. No one was there, and a car was speeding down the street. But this was far from a prank. The visitor left behind an envelope. With a bunch of handwritten letters inside.

Temple is expected hold a news conference Monday to introduce Matt Rhule as its football coach. The former Owls assistant was offered the job on Friday. Before he can formally accept, there is the matter of negotiating a contract. It's hard to imagine any way the details don't get worked out. Temple and athletic director Bill Bradshaw, who hired Al Golden 7 years ago and Steve Addazio in 2010, had no shortage of candidates after Addazio left Dec. 4 for Boston College. But it was clear from the outset that many people within the Temple community, including a large number of players, wanted a familiar face.

Matt Rhule, the New York Giants assistant offensive line coach, will be introduced as Temple's new head football coach on Monday unless there is a breakdown in negotiations, according to sources with knowledge of the situation. There have been conflicting reports as to whether Rhule has been formally offered the position. Either way, the former Owls assistant is clearly the guy Temple wants to replace Steve Addazio, who left Dec. 4 for Boston College. Rhule is expected to accept the offer.

The game was over four minutes into the first quarter, but the football massacre lasted all afternoon. Penn State tried hard to stop it, but in a mismatch during which they couldn't help but score and score and score, the fifth-ranked Nittany Lions humiliated Cincinnati, 81-0, in their home opener yesterday. That's right. Eighty-one to nothing. It was the most points ever scored by a Joe Paterno-coached team. It was the fourth most ever scored by Penn State in its 105 years of playing football.

LAST DEC. 17, Temple, with first-year coach Steve Addazio, was winning its first bowl game in 32 years, and second in program history. In 1 year, much has changed. Addazio just left to go to Boston College. The Owls got back into the Big East, which now is no longer looking like a BCS conference. And on Monday, athletic director Bill Bradshaw will hold a press conference to introduce his next coach. The process took a little less than 2 weeks. There was no shortage of interested possibilities.

CONTINUITY. Stability. Two really good things. Every year, schools lose coaches. And the carousel gets rolling all over again. Some places have to go through that more often than others, for obvious reasons. It's a profession. People are always looking to move up. As Al Golden once put it, there are only so many of these jobs. And not all of them can be Texas. Next season Temple will be playing for its third coach in four seasons. Golden left in 2010 after 5 years because it was probably time and Miami came calling.

CORAL GABLES, Fla. - Even in South Florida's suffocating heat, Al Golden's trademark at Temple remains the stylish staple of his sideline attire. Not only that, legions of University of Miami fans, led by a foursome self-dubbed the "Fear The Tie Guys," show up at games dressed as clones of the Hurricanes' second-year coach - solid orange or orange-and-green striped necktie with a white, button-down shirt. Others sport a white T-shirt with an orange tie screen-printed on the front, as the most prized recruit of Golden's career, running back Duke Johnson, did at his National Signing Day ceremony in February.

Steve Addazio, who this year served as the offensive coordinator at Florida under Urban Meyer, will interview for the head coaching position at Temple. The 51-year-old Addazio, who also coached the offensive line and tight ends during his six seasons with the Gators, has a wealth of experience after previously spending time on the staffs at Syracuse (1995-98), Notre Dame (1999-2001), and Indiana (2002-04). With Meyer having announced his retirement, Addazio's future at Florida is uncertain as new coach Will Muschamp said he will evaluate the coaching staff before making any hires.

Five years after he took over a Temple football program that was struggling to survive as a major-college team, Al Golden was introduced Monday as the new coach of the Miami Hurricanes. Golden, 41, was hired on Sunday afternoon. He broke the news to the Owls' players that evening after they were summoned to the team's practice facility at Edberg-Olson Hall. Hurricanes athletic director Kirby Hocutt praised his new coach at a news conference at Miami's Newman Alumni Center. "We were diligent and determined to find the right leader for our very proud football program," Hocutt said to an audience that included current and former Miami players.
