Temple has announced that Adam Fisher, who spent the last two seasons on Micah Shrewsberry’s staff at Penn State, is its next head coach.
“I am truly honored and humbled by the amazing opportunity to become a part of the Temple family,” Fisher said.
“I could not be more excited to lead one of the nation’s most legendary programs in Temple Men’s Basketball.”
Fisher, a Bucks County native, has been part of several successful staffs during his time in college coaching. Prior to joining Shrewsberry’s staff as associate head coach in 2021, he spent six seasons under Jim Larranaga at Miami. Fisher has also been on staff at Boston University and Villanova, the latter under Jay Wright.
Fisher will replace Aaron McKie, who failed to go to the NCAA tournament in his four seasons at Temple. The Owls were last in the NCAA tournament in 2019 under Fran Dunphy.
