The winningest coach in Temple football history, Wayne Hardin has been selected for enshrinement in the College Football Hall of Fame.
From 1970-82, he compiled a record of 80-52-3. The Owls won 10 games in 1979 -- including the Garden State Bowl -- and finished 17th in the nation in both wire service polls.
"This is a great day for Temple University," interim athletic director Kevin Clark said in a statement. "Wayne Hardin is not only a Hall of Fame football coach, but a Hall of Fame person. The entire Temple community is grateful that he has been selected for induction into the College Football Hall of Fame."
