Randy Shannon Fired Hours After Loss to USF

Randy Shannon's firing is confirmed by the University. ESPN's Bruce Feldman reports that the interim head coaching job has been offered to offensive line coach Jeff Stoutland and not offensive coordinator and assistant head coach Mark Whipple, who has also been fired.

University of Miami Athletic Director Kirby Hocutt announced the dismissal of Randy Shannon Saturday evening.

“We have made a decision to seek new leadership for our football program,” said Hocutt. “Our expectations are to compete for championships and return to the top of the college football world. We will immediately begin a national search.”

Hocutt will address the media Sunday at 1p.m. Eastern from the Edgerrin James room within the Athletics Department.  UM will have no further comment until the press conference Sunday.

He may not have been head coach material, but he has given a quarter-century of his life to Miami as a player, assistant, coordinator, and head coach, and it's unfortunate things didn't work out. Thanks for doing your best, Coach.
