Randy Shannon Fired
 
Just Saw It On Espn.

http://www.sportingnews.com/ncaa-foo...has-been-fired

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

Brent 11-27-2010 09:56 PM

Hah, wow. Has he really been that bad?

TitanHope 11-27-2010 09:56 PM

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)?

Miaoww 11-27-2010 09:58 PM

About damn time. It's suddenly turned into a great day.

Smooth Criminal 11-27-2010 09:58 PM

I wasn't expecting this. Interesting job they should be able to draw in a good coaching candidate.

Brent 11-27-2010 09:58 PM

Greg Schiano, maybe?


No, I kid.

draftguru151 11-27-2010 10:00 PM

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.

Dagagad 11-27-2010 10:02 PM

There is no way he would leave this early but Dan Mullen would be a great hire.

Brent 11-27-2010 10:02 PM

they should surprise the nation: hire Jon Gruden. he lives in Florida, right?

Dagagad 11-27-2010 10:05 PM

They should avoid hiring an ex nfl guy at all costs.

dannyz 11-27-2010 10:06 PM

What are your opinions on Kirby Smart? He seems like he could be a head Coach and Alabama has had a really good Defense the last couple of years.

I would be in favor of that.

draftguru151 11-27-2010 10:09 PM

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.

nepg 11-27-2010 10:12 PM

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!

dannyz 11-27-2010 10:22 PM

I think Harbaugh goes to the NFL.

ironman4579 11-27-2010 10:31 PM

You guys are gonna be sad when Rich Rodriguez is announced as the next head coach of Miami.

Michigan 11-27-2010 10:47 PM

Minor rumblings have been going on that the next UM coach will indeed be RichRod...

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.

J-Mike88 11-27-2010 11:06 PM

How can they fire Shannon?
There are already complaints left & right that there aren't enough minority (but that only means "black") coaches the way it is.
Now they fire one of the few in D1?

That ain't gonna go over well with Jesse & Brother Al.
Has Jesse spoken yet?

CashmoneyDrew 11-27-2010 11:09 PM

Gus Malzahn maybe?

shylo3716 11-27-2010 11:11 PM

Phillip Dorsett confirmed to me on FB that he WILL NOT decommit....YESSSSSS!!!!!!

Hurricanes25 11-27-2010 11:15 PM

He did a nice job cleaning up the program as Robert Marve was the only arrest (I believe). But as DG said, 28-22 is just not good enough in Miami.

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.

J-Mike88 11-28-2010 12:12 AM

Jimmy Johnson is still like 30 years younger than Paterno right?

bored of education 11-28-2010 12:15 AM

Edsall. naooo
