Miami Hurricanes Coaching Search: 12/1 updates

Here are reports and updates for the Miami Hurricanes coaching search from December 1st, 2015

Michael Seay/State of the U

I know everybody, myself included, is anxious to hear about the search for the next Miami Hurricanes Football Coach. This is the first of some (many) running updates with reports and news on that front. This page will be updated throughout the day.


I was out for a while tonight. Sorry.

Anyways, while I was out, apparently there was chatter that an announcement on the coaching hire was forthcoming. Brian London from 790 the Ticket had information to the contrary, however.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-partner="tweetdeck"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">As of 10:13 pm tonight..UM had no plans to &quot;announce their coach tomorrow.&quot; Of course that could have changed by 10:14 pm.</p>&mdash; BrianTheBeastLondon (@MiamiRadioBeast) <a href="">December 2, 2015</a></blockquote>

So, we'll continue to wait for Blake James and friends to make this hire and, hopefully, get this right.

That'll do it for today's updates. See you guys tomorrow.


InsideTheU, Miami's 247Sports site, has an article saying that former UM assistant, Rutgers Coach and Tampa Bay Buccaneers Coach Greg Schiano passed on the UCF job to put all his eggs in the Miami basket and wait for the job with the Canes.

Might work out. Might not. We'll see

Also, our UVA sister site Streaking the Lawn posted a report from ESPN's Mark Schlabach saying that Mark Richt will interview for that job in the near future


A couple new posts for your consumption. First, Matt Porter of the Palm Beach Post, who says that if the interview goes well, UM will offer the job to Mark Richt:

Then, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald, with a catch-all report on the coaching search.

More when it's available.


Confirmation that Dan Mullen has indeed interviewed for the Miami Job, which has been previously reported (see the 12:10pm update)

AND ALSO, Mark Richt in Miami to interview/meet with representatives confirmed, as per Susan Miller Degnan of the Miami Herald


Per FOXSports' Bruce Feldman, Miami has $$ to spend for coaching. While that's good to hear, the question remains: will we actually spend it, or continue to be cheap.....I mean, thrifty?


An interesting report from Brody Logan of Fox 5 News in Washington, D.C. (a UM alum)

The plot could potentially be thickening. We'll see.


Another update from Barry Jackson, and this one could prove to be big.


Another piece of information from Miami Herald writer Barry Jackson

Much like what Porter says in his 12 things to know (below), this could be because either 1. UM is wholly disinterested in Cristobal or 2. Nick Saban won't let assistants interview during the season (Bama has SEC championship game this weekend). Or, the other, or a little of both? Hmm....

Interesting list of candidates here from Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald. Strong still in play?


Mark Richt interviewing with Miami today? According to this report, yes.

Take it for what you will.


I went on the Bill King Radio Show to talk about the Canes coaching search and what we know. You can find the podcast to that in the embedded tweet below. My segment starts at the 33 minute mark:


The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that former UGA coach Mark Richt is "unlikely to jump at any current job opening". Miami is said to have reached out to Richt, who said he was contacted by 5 schools yesterday. The salient line from the above piece from the AJC:

"Insiders say Richt is not interested in returning to Miami."

So, that's not a positive report for Miami. But, that's the nature of a search. More to come.

From last night

The Miami Herald says Butch Davis and Mark Richt are in consideration for the Miami Hurricanes Coaching job.
