Dawn Staley honors late basketball coach John Chaney with outfit

South Carolina women’s basketball coach Dawn Staley paid tribute to legendary Temple men’s basketball coach John Chaney with her outfit for the Gamecocks’ matchup with No. 5 Connecticut. 

Chaney, who won more than 700 games in his career between Cheyney State and Temple, which he coached for 24 years, died Jan. 29 at the age of 89. A memorial service was held for the coach on Temple University’s campus in Philadelphia on Monday.

To honor the late Hall of Fame coach, the 50-year-old Staley – a Philadelphia native who was a colleague of Chaney’s at Temple as she started her own coaching career at the university in 2000 – sported attire that became one of Chaney’s signatures over the course of his career: a white button-down shirt with a big collar and a loose black tie.
