Guests: Bob Ford, Joey Cranney, and Fred Turoff
Temple Universityâ€™s Athletic Director Kevin Clark announced several weeks ago that the school will be eliminating seven sports programs in 2014. The cuts, effective this summer, include five menâ€™s teams — indoor and outdoor track and field, crew, gymnastics, and baseball â€“ and womenâ€™s crew and softball. Nine coaches will lose their jobs and 150 student-athletes will be impacted. In this hour of Radio Times, weâ€™ll break down this issue with BOB FORD, sports columnist for The Philadelphia Inquirer, JOEY CRANNEY, Editor-in-Chief of The Temple News, and FRED TUROFF, Templeâ€™s longtime menâ€™s gymnastics coach.
