Temple University has targeted former Owl Aaron McKie for a position within the school’s basketball program. McKie, who most recently served as an assistant coach with the 76ers, is supposedly being considered for a player development position, a source with knowledge of the situation said. A day after the PIAA ruled him eligible for his senior football season, Martin Luther King defensive tackle Dawayne Young orally committed to Temple.
“I’ll just continue to work every day and continue to get better as a coach,” said Michael Curry, who along with assistant coaches Aaron McKie and Jeff Capel, is under contract for another season. “I’m the senior guy on the staff, so I will continue to lead the rest of the staff and the players that we still have and the ones we have under contract. Just continue to make them get better.”
Worse, McKie and the other players in the gym were there when coach Doug Collins came in to tell Green and explain it to the other players in the gym. “That was heartbreaking,” McKie said, “because Willie had his 10-year-old son, Ross, with him, and Ross just walked off the court crying. I told him he’d always be family, and Willie explained it to him, but that was tough.”
This was awkward, even painful. Here was 76ers assistant coach Aaron McKie putting Willie Green through a workout at the team’s practice site yesterday morning, knowing Green was within minutes of being officially traded. “And I couldn’t tell him,” McKie was saying yesterday, after Green and Jason Smith had been dealt to New Orleans for veteran forward Darius Songaila and rookie big man Craig Brackins.
