Here's to the next Hurricanes head coach... Josh McDaniels (One can only hope)

Yup, just saw it too. I've been hearing rumors about it, but this is the first that ESPN has said anything.

It'll be interesting to see who the next coach is. Miami is a sexy school. Maybe go after Gus Malzahn, Gary Patterson, or Chris Peterson (although Peterson may be content where he is)?

28-22 in 4 years, that's not getting the job done at Miami. He left the program in a lot better condition than it was when he took over, but it was clearly time to move on.

Gruden has been mentioned for a while, but will cost too much and isn't a likely long term solution. Randy Edsall has been mentioned a ton, along with all the former UM coaches (Schiano, Cristobal, etc) but nothing legit has come out yet.

Shannon was good and I like him, but he just wasn't good enough.

The Jimmy Johnson-Butch Davis chain has officially snapped (minus the Dennis Erickson tenure). It's probably time for them to blow it up and start fresh with a new coaching regime.

Let the Jim Harbaugh and Gary Patterson talk ensue!

Keep in mind that it's a rumor from a supposedly well connected Michigan alum though. While I'd be incredibly happy if it happened and Michigan not only got rid of Rodriguez but also got Harbaugh (the other part of the rumor), there's no indication that the source is in any way reliable at this point (other than Shannon being fired, which I guess he did call), so I won't hold my breath.

ElectricEye

I think he deserves a shot somewhere. Miami is not a bad place to get that shot.

Gruden would be another good one. He's a really good football coach and his enthusiasm would translate well into building a program. He's certainly hung out in Florida quite a bit the past nine years. Would not be a good hire if he was planning on coaching in the NFL again though and I really think that's probably where his heart lies.

Think they need to bring in someone who is a cultural fit too though. Get them playing tough, fast, and nasty again. Hopefully they can do that and stay as clean as they have been because college football is better when Miami is a good program.

I liked Shannon, but a change is understandable. They also have to decide what they'r going to do at QB. Jacory Harris isn't the future of this team.

I actually think Rodriguez could do well at Miami. But I don't think the Miami fans on the board would be too happy after the last three seasons at Michigan. Maybe I'm wrong though.

They have another top prospect coming in at QB so if they can keep him on board through the coaching change that would help.

I hate to joke about this but I said Miami could be a program he would come back too....Pete Carroll, i really think the guy's heart is in college football and Miami is the east coast version of USC....long shot indeed but i could see it happening lol.

Mullen definitely would. He's making chicken feed at Miss State. There's talk that he might be a candidate at Minnesota, let alone a bigger program (although Minnesota will arguably pay their coach more than Miami).

There were rumors that if Shannon were fired he'd be a candidate at Minnesota. I REALLY hope this isn't the case.

Jelephant87
11-28-2010, 08:43 AM
I don't really understand how they had to move on. They just gave him an extension so up to this year they had to be satisfied with how he was doing. And even though you could argue they should've won certain games anyway, if Jacory didn't get hurt I think they would've went 9-3. So how do you fire a coach who could've went 10-3 (if they won their bowl game) if the starting QB didn't get hurt and they had to go to a true frosh.

As far as a replacement, I think they need to get a big time coach. Shannon was the guy who cleaned up the mess and got the program back on track. Now they need a guy who can get all those talented players to perform up to their potential.

Contract extensions are often done simply to help recruiting. If the buyout stays the same (and in this case it appears it has), then it's basically meaningless.

Per Orlando Sentinel writer:


Before every Monday night game, ESPN announcers Mike Tirico, Ron Jaworski and Jon Gruden held a "chalk talk" luncheon with reporters and members of the community in which they share their perspectives on the upcoming game.

Gruden, of course, has become a hot name in several cities where coaching searches are expected at the end of the season. That includes San Francisco. Unfortunately, it will be difficult to ask Gruden's his thoughts on the 49ers. Monday's "chalk talk" has been cancelled.

-----------------------------------------------------------

Sacramento Bee reporting that Jon Gruden is "off limits" with reporters for his gig at MNF

"According to a UM source, former NFL coach Jon Gruden initiated contact with the university to express his desire for the job and that the interest in mutual. Hocutt said there's no timeline on the hire and that money will not be an issue in the selection."

http://www.nationalfootballpost.com/Report-Gruden-to-leave-ESPN-and-coach-at-Miami.html


If Jon Gruden indeed leaves ESPN’s Monday Night Football booth, it may not be for an NFL head coaching job after all.

According to Lake Lewis of Sports Journey Broadcast Network on his Twitter page, the former Oakland Raiders and Tampa Bay Bucs head coach will take over for the dismissed Randy Shannon at Miami.


The reported deal would be worth roughly $3 million per season.

Lewis cited a credible source for the news in another Tweet:

My scoop on Gruden to UM is from a credible source I respect who is a former ESPN radio guy and also another scoop is a UM great. No lies here...

Whether or not the report is true, there’s no question that Miami’s administration is looking to make a splash with this hire, and Gruden would give the Hurricanes a fiery, offensive leader — essentially the opposite of the ousted Shannon.

It obviously seems to be too soon for Miami to have a replacement for Shannon set in stone, and the 'Canes are expected to have a thorough national search. But at the very least, could Gruden be the top contender for the opening?

It's still sources and scoops, but this looks to have some weight.

Gruden's personality would work very well in a college setting. Thing is with hiring a guy like Gruden is that how long will you have him before he decides goes back to the league again? I can't see a scenario where he would have success at Miami and not go back to the pro game.

I don't think he would be a good hire. Coaching NFL and college are not the same thing. He would come in with a way too complicated system and not be able to implement it properly with college players.m He would be back in the nflin a few years.

Hire a coach who is proven in college football. Someone who has won games at lower programs and can recruit Florida. Someone who has an effective, simple offensive/defensive system that is proven to work at the college level and who has shown he can make good hires in assistant coaches. It is a very simple process. Florida did it with Urban Meyer, Notre Dame did it with Brian Kelly(i think he will be a success). Gruden does not fit that profile.

ElectricEye
11-28-2010, 10:44 PM
Yeah, this is becoming very interesting. Looked like a done deal. Maybe it is but he can't comment because he's negotiating his way out ESPN? Don't know what kind of arrangement ESPN does with it's commentators, but he might be obligated to finish out the season on Monday Night. Either way, pretty clear Gruden is a commodity and is going to be coaching somewhere next year.

Nailed it. Even in the NFL Gruden was trying to fit square pegs into round holes and refusing to "dumb-down" his system. The only quarterback to completely comprehend the scheme being Rich Cannon who says he stills wakes up at night blabbering Gruden verbiage.

Take that, and introduce some scholarly U thugs...

But there is still hope. Gruden's last firing was a wakeup call and adjustments will be made. He would instantly be a top recruiter and motivator, the two most important skills of all collegiate coaches.

BeerBaron

I don't think Gruden would be a good hire, because I tend to believe that being a pro coach and a college coach are inherently different.

I have no doubt that if they did bring him in, he'd be great at teaching kids the X's and O's. If I were a top QB who wanted a path to the NFL, I'd definitely be willing to play for Gruden.

But overall, like has been said, I just can't imagine him being the type to "kiss the asses" of teenagers and convince the kid's parents that their kid would be in good hands with him.

He definitely needs to get back into the pro game though. I think his last few years in Tampa, he got a little full of himself and couldn't find the QB he wanted. But if he went into a rebuilding team and got to put it together as he wanted, he could make a contender I feel.

bearsfan_51
11-29-2010, 08:31 AM
Jon Gruden's father was a college coach (Gruden also played QB at my alma mater for a year, but that's another story).

Anyway, he spent an additional five years in college as an assistant coach. Sure, the last year was 1991, but it's not like he's completely oblivious as to the differences.

I think it's far easier to go from the pros to college than vice versa.

If they truely want to bring the excitement back to Miami I'd have to go with Gus Malzahn, he IMO is the best coaching option out there. The guy is a genious and by going to Miami who can get any recruit that they want, his offense could only get more scary.

Miami just needs to get some swagger back, its weird cause Shannon was on those teams that made Miami become the "U" but he never got his players to to play with that attitude. That is one of the reasons they brought him in and 28-24 W-L in that program with talent that comes there every year, let alone playing in the ACC which is no longer a powerhouse (prob the 5th best these days behing SEC, Big Ten, Pac 10, and Big 12) that is unexceptable.

No doubt he is an offensive genius and you make a great point about his experience recruiting in Texas. I guess I would just prefer somebody who cares a little bit more about defense than Leach does. He also seems like a douch to me.

Richt, Malzahn and Leech aren't being considered. Shalala hates Leech, he was interviewed when Shannon was hired and Shalala wants no part of him. Whoever is hired has to already have been a HC in the NFL or college, so no Malzahn.

Apparently four different guys jumped the gun last night on the Gruden stuff, all with 4 different sources. Super weird situation. There have been discussions with him though, and it's far from over, him and Gary Patterson (though I don't think that has a chance) are the top two candidates at the moment. I think it ends up being close to a Edsall/Mike Stoops level guy though.

He has a proven collegiate track record. I'm sure he had to scramble for recruits back in the day.

And the point more goes to that Gruden is getting paid nicely to sit in a booth one day a week. With some nominal work during the week. For roughly half of a year. It's also one of the premier jobs in that profession.

Getting paid well to do something easy, vs getting paid lots to do something very hard, that he may end up being a failure at, is his decision basis.

I would sit in the booth and watch my kids grow up.

A big name coach needs to be brought in. The program is headed in the right direction, they just need a face
Miami is one of the few programs that doesn't need a face. Jimmy Johnson wasn't well known at all when he came in, neither was Dennis Erickson.

What Miami needs is someone who knows how to actually coach a football team. The recruiting is going to be there no matter what.

IMO Mullen would be the best fit for them. Hes recruited Florida and he has the experience of recruiting the south now being at MSU. Hes turned the Miss St program around and i think he would be a great fit there.

I would love to see Gruden in the college game....the thing that concerns me with him is idk if hes too advanced for these kids or not? Would he be able to relate to college kids or would he be talking over their heads?

I think Gruden would be fine, if he can explain things to the casual fan he should be able to make sense of it to kids who should live and breath football.

I think a superbowl ring should have the same sort of pull with recruits as a NC does. I think he would be a great get for Miami as he actually would bring some swagger.

I liked Shannon, seemed like a nice guy but he really seemed to lack any kind of fire and passion. Miami have to be one of the most passionless teams over the last 5 or so years which is a massive contrast to the great teams from the start of the decade who were very much loud, brash and in your face.

As ghastly as it might seem, given the way he has our defense back to Superbowl form, he might be a HC candidate in the NFL again before long. I think people will see the job he's doing here and realize how badly Millen was hamstringing him in Detroit.

Anyways, back on topic, it sounds like if Gruden wants the job, it's his to lose at this time.

I was being sarcastic about hiring Marinelli. But I do think that he got a very raw deal in Detroit. Matt Millen is five IQ points the wrong way from being functionally reetarded.

I'm possibly the only one who thinks this but Gruden would not be a good hire. Coaching NFL and college is not the same thing. In fact the opposite attributes can be beneficial in either case.

Vanilla offenses where you do the same highly effective thing over and over again work awesome with 19 year old college players. Not so in the NFL. Can Gruden make his offense more simple..does he even know how to do this? Isn't this the guy who couldn't trust young QBs? We don't know he can develop young QBs.

He should be able to recruit with his SB ring. The ring he won with a team built by someone else. But so could Charlie Weis.

Hire someone who has shown he can coach in college.

Shannon is a Dungy type coach, just nowhere near as good of a head coach.

Gruden's been studying the college game the past few years, spent a ton of time with Oregon's offense and learned about recruiting from Bama (eek). He's definitely a huge risk as a head coach, but Miami is trying to win championships, can't do that playing it safe. Getting a great staff around him (which is what is being discussed now apparently, Gruden's contract is done) is huge. His brother Jay is likely to be the OC, but no idea about the rest of the staff (other than Leavitt won't be the DC).

Yup. Also, consider that he has lived in Florida for pretty much his entire life. His recruiting classes will be ridiculous.

I'm with Dagagad, though. The only quarterback Gruden ever trusted to run his offense was 4953904850 year old Rich Gannon. He loved grooming young QBs, but he hated playing them. We'll see if he can strike the balance to simplify his system enough for a teenager to understand while still making it effective.

That's why I didn't want him in Dallas. I saw this as a big problem which he always seemed to take with him. I remember at one point he had like 4 young QB's on the Bucs roster didn't he? Not knowing who he wanted to play at any given time instead of finding 1 guy to go with.

It seemed like every year he had to get someone new to play with. When he first went to Tampa, they had Brad Johnson doing well and a solid backup in Shaun King....he decided he needs a project and brings in Rob Johnson.

And drafts Chris Simms

And trades for the rights to retired Jake Plummer

And drafts Gradkowski

And drafts Josh Johnson

And in Oakland, he was there to draft Tuiasosopo.

He's like a guy who always needs a new project. I don't know what he'd do if he found a real franchise QB.

Simms was a late 3rd round pick
Tuiasosopo a late 2nd round pick
Johnson a 5th round pick
Gradkowski was a 6th round pick.

It's not like he was handed top talents at the position. Late 2nd round QBs rarely pan out and it only gets less and less likely from there. Simms was actually kinda decent before becoming the worst QB in the NFL. I just think they didn't have the talent to cut it in the NFL, whether Gruden or Jesus himself was coaching them.

Gruden thought he could make every quarterback into Rich Gannon. He never picked one and went with it either, that was his main problem, but he actually made all of those guys look pretty decent for a period of time. Chris Simms fell off the face of the earth post-Gruden. Luke McCown was another fascination of his too that no one has mentioned.

Here's a bit about the contract;

"He's focused on getting better," said Williamson. "My feeling is Jon's in year two of a long term contract and we expect Jon to be on "Monday Night Football" and doing what he's been doing for a long time to come."

Ehh. I wouldn't go after him that hard. I love what he has done with Temple. And give him mad dope stupid props as well. As a recruiter he is awesome. As a HC well thats a different story. Hasn't beat a team with a winning record in how long. The coaching positions around him are very questionable hires, he pretty much gave the jobs to his buddies that don't know squat. He doesn't make game time changes or decisions or ask the OC and DC WTF they are doing.

He is like Shannon but, an amazing recruiter and is always fired up on the sidelines and trying to get the best out of his players. But the coaches he surrounds himself with leads to him making questionable decisions during games. And then miss managing of players, like our starting Rb/offense went down. Everyone knows he is injury prone, but another rb wasn't activated or given more carries. Instead a 5'5 rb that usually splits carriers with BP is forced to take the load, and that leads to a ****** offense, and even shitter play calling.

But as a recruiter you can't go wrong with Al. As a HC he could do better with just surrounding himself with better coaches and making coaches responsible. He does hold all players accountable, for a school that could use all the talent we can get. He has kicked off some prominent players for breaking rules we don't know of and not following his way. Its his way or the highway. Junior Gallette on the Saints this year was at Temple, kicked off because of who knows what. Discipline and school are two things he holds very high for all players, if he finds out they skipped a class its hell for them then.

For him to attract guys to come to a school thats football program was on the verge of closing, I say he is doing a pretty good job of getting guys to come here. He gets guys to commit, then they go to military academy and then sign to BCS programs.

I expect him to do far better this year in recruiting but something seems off.

Good for Randy too. Agree about that. He's real good with defenses.

You think he takes any recruits with him?

Very likely. Randy while being a big disciplinarian is also a players coach, and can pitch to recruits really well. A lot of Miami's verbal commits decommited right after he was fired so I would not be surprised if they jump ship to Texas.

Don't expect any of them to go to UT, most will likely come back to UM.

I want Randy to succeed wherever he goes. I can see why fans would be excited because of his personal character, overqualified resume and plus recruiting ability.

Obviously he was a successful DC before he was a HC but a lot of that can be attributed to the talent he had to work with. Our defenses were very vanilla and basic when he was the HC here and he was stubborn about player management as well.

Anytime a coach gets fired you expect Pandora's box to open with all of the coach's faults. A change of scenery and different chain-of-command might make Shannon a great hire. Texas does have a lot of defensive talent and as long as Shannon doesn't mess around with the current system too much they should continue to have a dominant defense. Texas families will love Shannon and his values and he may open up recruiting possibilities in Florida.

We'll see if it actually happens first...

Our coach beat Miami's coach this year. :)

I like the Golden hire. He's young like Muschamp, but has actually been a head coach before.

Maybe Chris Peterson is staying at Boise 4-life.

So what assistant coaches are out there looking to be hired for a HC job in the MAC? Come on MAC is the stepping stone for a better job.

Anyone got some names, Temple needs a new coach?

You can have Rich Rod! He already recruits like he's in the MAC, so the switch would be perfect.

Well, Northern Illinois just hired the defensive coordinator from Wisconsin. If you're talking about a job like Temple, you're probably looking at similar-level coordinators or successful FCS coaches.

Possible names?
-K.C. Keeler- Delaware Head Coach
-Sean McDonnell- New Hampshire Head Coach
-Paul Cryst- Wisconsin Offensive Coordinator
-Don Treadwell- Michigan State Offensive Coordinator
-Paul Petrino- Illinois Offensive Coordinator
-Bud Foster- Virginia Tech Defensive Coordinator
-Todd Orlando- Connecticut Defensive Coordinator
-Scott Shafer- Syracuse Defensive Coordinator

Just some educated guesses. Probably all wrong.

Don't see Bud Foster going to Temple. Other than that, no clue about that list.
