Fran Dunphy Farewell

Fran Dunphy Farewell

Mr. Big 5–the winningest coach in the Big 5 history–Fran Dunphy is stepping down as Head Coach of Temple Basketball at the end of the 2018-2019 season. But before the Temple community says goodbye, the team at OwlSports Update presents a special sendoff to the dedicated and longtime Philadelphia college basketball icon, premiering Thursday on TUTV.

Dick Jerardi, former Daily News writer and Philadelphia’s local basketball historian, joins Sarah at the desk to reflect on Fran’s legacy in Philadelphia and beyond.
