Hall of Fame basketball coach John Chaney, a zone defense innovator who led Temple to 17 NCAA tournament appearances, has died at the age of 89.

The university said he died after a short, unspecified illness. Chaney spent 24 seasons at Temple, beginning in 1982-83 -- the only season his Owls failed to reach the NCAA tournament or NIT.

He went to the Elite Eight on five occasions, and Temple was ranked No. 1 for a stretch during the 1987-88 season, when the Owls finished 32-2 and went 18-0 in Atlantic 10 play.
