Temple is the worst football program in the nation.
Al Golden took this perennial cellar dweller and, thanks in part to the incredibly weak teams in the Mid-American Conference, turned Temple into a winner.
However, as Bleacher Report first reported months ago, Al Golden had no intentions of staying at Temple long term.
There are many problems with the Temple job. It should come as no surprise that Golden punched his golden ticket out of town.
As Bleacher Report has reported, there is a very good possibility that Temple Athletics could have their funding slashed. Football is seen as one of the main areas for Governor Tom Corbett to begin slashing Temple's athletic budget.
Another problem Temple faces is its shockingly bad fan apathy. This Bleacher Report article highlights just how little the Temple community cares about Temple athletics.
