One of John Chaney's first decisions at Temple was letting his players decide when to practice.

Some preferred the afternoon, others the evening and a few didn't care. When no unanimous decision could be reached, Chaney stepped in.

"He looked around and said, 'OK, I'll make one for you. Everyone be here at 5 o'clock -- in the morning!"' former Owls standout Ed Coe said. "So that's how that all started."

Through 23 seasons, 17 NCAA tournament appearances, a few controversies and lasting role as father figure, Chaney has gone his own way.

Through it all, he's managed to win.

With a win against Army in the first round of the Preseason NIT on Tuesday night, Chaney will have his 500th victory at Temple. The 2001 Hall of Fame inductee is 724-297 in 33 years as a coach at Division II Cheyney State and Temple, and 499-238 in 23 years with the Owls.

Though he had some controversy last season, I still support the guy, and am glad to see him reaching this milestone this year. Congrats, Coach!
