Temple's Fran Dunphy is regarded as the most underrated college basketball coach in America, according to a CBSSports.com poll.

Dunphy received 14 percent of the votes from a poll of more than 100 college coaches. St. Mary's Randy Bennett finished second at 9 percent.  

"I appreciate my peers thinking I have a clue about what I'm doing," Dunphy told CBSSports.com after learning he was voted the most underrated coach in America. "We're lucky to have the jobs we have."

The Delaware County native has compiled a 444-228 record and 14 NCAA tournament appearances over a coaching career at Temple and Penn. This past season, he guided the Owls to a 24-8 record and their first outright Atlantic Ten Conference regular-season title since the 1989-90 season.
