Ok guys. The Al Golden era is officially over after yesterday's Sun Bowl, and now Mark Richt will begin to announce new staff members. Here are the updates on that front for December 27th.
It appears that another current staffer may not be retained by CMR.
Hearing that CMR will not retain RB's coach Tim "Ice" Harris— J.T. Wilcox (@JTWilcoxSports) December 27, 2015
After rumors started coming yesterday that Missouri DL Coach Craig Kuligowski could be headed to Miami, sourced reports to that effect came this morning. And, like Richt's hiring, this report was first made by Peter Ariz of CanesInSight.com
Big, BIG hire there. Kuligowski is, for my money, the best DL coach in America. Just check out the list of players he's coached:
Yeah. THAT. WILL. WORK.
Thomas Brown: confirmed.
Also from Peter Ariz, Thomas Brown will be on staff at Miami.
Can also confirm multiple reports from a few days ago that Thomas Brown will be on Miami's staff. Not sure on his title #Canes— Peter Ariz (@PeterAriz) December 27, 2015
Kevin Beard won't be retained
Another report from Peter Ariz (man, he did WORK this morning), but current UM WR coach Kevin Beard is not expected to be retained.
Was just told that Kevin Beard is not expected to return. Bright coaching future for him ahead. He will have opportunities. #Canes— Peter Ariz (@PeterAriz) December 27, 2015
I, personally, wanted Beard to remain on staff. But, CMR has other ideas here. Beard will have options moving forward, and I wish him nothing but the best.
That's it for now. More updates when they're available.
