Floyd Temple, now in his 40th year as a coach or administrator in the Kansas University athletic department, has announced he'll retire on June 30.

Temple, an assistant athletic director since 1981, was the Jayhawks' head baseball coach for 28 years (1954-81).

"Floyd Temple has contributed significantly to the university over the past 40 years," KU athletic director Bob Frederick said. "We will miss him greatly."

Temple, who will turn 66 on Feb. 3, supervises the operation of facilities, the strength and equipment programs, softball and the men's and women's golf programs. He is also in charge of game-day management for both football and basketball.

A native of Coffeyville, Temple guided the KU baseball team to 436 victories. He also served as an assistant football coach in the 60s and 70s.
