Statement From Temple Director of Athletics Dr. Patrick Kraft

This evening, head football coach Manny Diaz called to inform me that he has accepted the head coaching position back at the University of Miami.  We are disappointed that he is leaving, but wish him the best as he returns home. 

We have already launched a national search for a new head football coach and I am confident that we will bring yet another outstanding head coach to North Broad Street.  Our student-athletes deserve excellence and stability and we are searching for the coach who can deliver on both. 

We are moving forward the only way we know how: Temple Tough.

Dr. Patrick Kraft
Director of Athletics
