Dwayne Killings has returned to Temple.

Killings, who served as Temple’s assistant director for men’s basketball operations from 2006-09, was named an Owls assistant coach on Monday. He spent last season as an assistant coach at Boston University.  The previous year, he worked for the NBA D-League, monitoring player development and providing player-progress updates. The Owls' position became available when former assistant Matt Langel was named Colgate’s head coach in April.

“I am honored and humbled to be back working for [Temple head coach Fran] Dunphy and Temple University,” Killings said in a statement.  “I have huge shoes to fill following Matt Langel, but my experiences working here at Temple along with my time at the NBA and working for Pat Chambers at Boston University have helped prepare me for this opportunity. I am eager and excited to get to work among some familiar faces.”

Chambers left Boston University last week to take over Penn State’s program.
