Ohio State's Stan Drayton interviews for Temple job

Jeff Hanisch-US PRESSWIRE

The Buckeyes' running backs coach is a candidate for the vacant head coaching position at Temple.

Ohio State Buckeyes running backs coach Stan Drayton interviewed for the Temple head coaching job Sunday, according to a report. Drayton has 20 years of coaching experience as an assistant, and he has been at Ohio State since 2011.

Drayton has some experience coaching in the state of Pennsylvania, as he spent time at both the University of Pennsylvania and Villanova during the 1990s. He coached running backs for the majority of his career, though he did spend 2011 as the Buckeyes' wide receivers coach. Drayton also spent time coaching at Florida, Tennessee and Mississippi State, among others.

The Owls are looking for a new head coach because Steve Addazio accepted the Boston College head gig on Dec. 4. Addazio spent two seasons at Temple, leading the Owls to a bowl game in 2011.

If hired, Drayton would be inheriting a Temple program that went 4-7 in 2012 and finished in a tie for sixth in the Big East.
