Geoff Collins continues put his imprint on Temple's coaching staff as he added two more coaches on Tuesday afternoon.
Robert Calabrese has been named the Owls' offensive analyst and Josh Linam has been named the Owls' defensive analyst, the program announced.
Calabrese comes from Wagner college, where he served as the running backs coach. From 2009-12, Calabrese was a quarterback at Central Florida, where he met Collins, who was the Knights' linebackers coach at the time.
Linam comes from the University of Florida, where he was a graduate assistant for the Gators' defense under Collins' tutelage. Like Calabrese, Linam played at UCF. He was a linebacker for Collins there from 2008-11.
Tuesday's coaching staff additions come less than a week after Collins added three others, including new offensive coordinator Dave Patenaude, to the Owls' staff.
The Collins era at Temple begins on Sept. 2 when the Owls visit Notre Dame.
BLACKSBURG, Va. -- Public opposition is growing against the planned induction of former football star Michael Vick into the Virginia Tech Sports Hall of Fame.
The Roanoke Times reported Tuesday that two online petitions at change.org had received more than 90,000 combined signatures against the September induction. The Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine has also announced its opposition.
The university in Blacksburg has continued to defend its recent decision, noting that some believe Vick is the greatest athlete in school history.
Vick served 19 months in federal prison on 2007 dogfighting convictions. He was a top contender for the 1999 Heisman Trophy after leading the Hokies through an undefeated regular season and to a spot in the national championship game. He went on to play professionally for the Atlanta Falcons and Philadelphia Eagles.
Former 76er and La Salle basketball star Doug Overton pleaded guilty to three counts of disorderly conduct Wednesday, stemming from an April 30 incident on the Cynwyd Heritage Trail.
Overton, 47, was arrested for exposing himself to both men and women while on the trail in Bala Cynwyd, Pennsylvania, on April 30, per the police.
Overton, the head basketball coach at Divison II Lincoln University, was sentenced to one year of probation and ordered to participate in a psycho-sexual evaluation.
As part of a plea deal, three counts of indecent exposure were dropped.
“He admitted on the record that his behavior was offensive and obscene, it was obscene behavior and that other people that were there in the park that day enjoying a public area with their families, that they observed that and it was offensive and obscene to them,” Assistant District Attorney Brianna Ringwood told the Main Line Times. “He admitted to engaging in behavior that was obscene and offensive.”
