Temple's Wayne Hardin heading to the Hall of Fame
The winningest coach in Temple football history will be inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame.
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."
Before he coached at Temple, Hardin coached at the Naval Academy. And, just for laughs, here is a video of Hardin's 1959 appearance on the television show, "What's My Line?"
