The Miami Hurricanes made another solid coaching hire, as they’ve decided to bring on Rob Likens as the new wide receivers coach. Likens will take over for previous WR coach Taylor Stubblefield, who recently left for Penn State for the same role.

Likens has been with the Arizona State Sun Devils the previous three years, with the last two seasons as offensive coordinator. He’s also spent time at Kansas, Cal, Louisiana Tech and Temple.

Likens joins the offensive staff for the Hurricanes led by new OC Rhett Lashlee. Likens has experience in the air-raid offense, when he was under Sonny Dykes at both Louisiana Tech and Cal. Dykes is the head coach at SMU, where Lashlee was the previous two years.

Welcome to Miami, coach Likens!
