Temple University has targeted former Owl Aaron McKie for a position within the school’s basketball program.
According to a source with knowledge of the situation, McKie, who most recently served as an assistant coach with the 76ers, is believed to being looked at for a player development position.
Inducted into the Temple Basketball Hall of Fame in 2011, McKie, who is presently working for Comcast SportsNet as an analyst on the network’s pre and postgame 76ers shows, was most recently a member of the 76ers coaching staff from 2008 – 2013. His name came up briefly in whispers as a potential coaching candidate for the Sixers shortly after the team parted ways with former coach Doug Collins last year.
Prior to that, McKie enjoyed a 13-year playing career in the NBA following an illustrious career at Temple. As a pro, McKie averaged 7.4 points, 3.3 rebounds and 2.7 assists.
