Former Boston College RB Montel Harris to Play for Temple
Harris was dismissed from BC in May for a repeated violation of team rules. His transfer to Temple was expected since two former Eagles assistants are now coaching there—Ryan Day is the offensive coordinator and Kevin Rodgers is the quarterbacks coach.
Although plagued with lingering injuries that have led to multiple surgeries, Harris is the FBS active career rushing leader heading into 2012; he has 3,735 yards to this date, averaging 93.4 per game.
If he would have stayed in the ACC, a 34-year conference record likely would have been broken: North Carolina State's Ted Brown currently holds the league's career rushing record with 4,602 yards when he played from 1975-78.
Temple owns the most run-oriented game plan in the Mid-American Conference, having rushed for over 250 yards per game last season (No. 7 in the country). It won't miss a beat with a large dose of Harris and Matt Brown in the backfield.
Harris could very well help the Owls make a run at the Big East in their first year as a member.
