Temple to Drop Several Sports 12/6/13
PHILADELPHIA - Temple University says it is cutting seven sports programs in 2014, including baseball, women's rowing and softball, among others. Nine coaches will lose their jobs. The university says the decision to cut the sports, which also include men's indoor and outdoor track and field, men's crew and men's gymnastics, was the result of the school's underfunded athletic department.
The last time Temple cut programs was in 1986, when it eliminated eight sports.
