Big East Football Media Day: Temple Owls Preview

After years of being the kid not cool enough to be a part of the Big East Conference club, the Temple Owls' football program makes its return to the dance floor in 2012-13. Needing to fill a hole, created by the quickly departing West Virginia Mountaineers, the league re-invited the Philadelphia-based school after kicking it out in '04.

There seems to be no hard feelings between the two entities, and the Owls will be looking to make a statement in their first year back. And, there's a strong possibility Temple could do that, as last season under first-year head coach Steve Addazio the Owls went 9-4 overall and finished second in the Mid-American Conference.

Over the last three seasons, Temple has compiled more victories than any three-year period.

Representing Temple at the Big East media day will be returning quarterback Chris Coyer, who led the MAC in passing efficiency last season, defensive end Marcus Green, kicker/punter Brandon McManus and offensive tackle Martin Wallace.
