Eagles coordinator Todd Bowles a candidate for Temple head coach

Todd Bowles has had a rough time as the Eagles’ defensive coordinator this season, but his alma mater apparently still thinks he’s a good coach.

Temple University, where Bowles played in the 1980s, has contacted Bowles about its head-coaching vacancy, CSNPhilly.com reports.

Bowles, who became the Eagles’ defensive coordinator when Juan Castillo was fired this season, said last week that he’s only thinking about his current job. But he didn’t deny that he’d be interested in returning to Temple as his next job.

“Right now, I haven’t even thought about it,” Bowles said. “I love my school to death. I wear Temple sweatshirts every day. I got my job right here. I’m very happy with it.”

The Eagles are expected to fire head coach Andy Reid after the season, and that would put Bowles and the rest of the staff out of work as well. Bowles may say he’s only thinking about his job with the Eagles, but it’s hard to believe he wouldn’t love a job offer that allows him to stay in Philadelphia and take over at his alma mater. Bowles to Temple makes a lot of sense.

  1. Not to mention the fact that he wants away from the Eagles in the worst way, he most likely sees them blaming him for the defensive woes since he took over.

    No, you’re expecting the Eagles to fire Reid. They won’t and he won’t resign. He’ll coach out his contract when the 2013 season is over. Todd Bowels on the other hand will probably be better off coaching Temple. Go Eagles! Go Owls!

  3. T.B….Hurry & take the job before the Eagles fire you & before Temple figures out you made a bad defense worse!

  4. Bowles would be an excellent choice. He’s a graduate of Temple, and Temple needs to get away from hiring people that use it as a stepping stone.

    I also think Tom Bradley would be an excellent choice, even though he is not a Temple grad.

  5. As a Cowboy fan, I can come out and say this guy is rubbish. I don’t even know how this clown keeps getting jobs. He’s actually never had any notable success anywhere. I don’t know maybe in practice and on the sideline, he looks the part? Either way, this guy is the Stoney Case of coaches. Just keeps getting chances for no apparent reason.
