Well, that’s one way to solve your problems, Miami.
Early Sunday, Mark Richt announced his retirement. This left Miami without a head coach on December 30th, an issue no college program wants to have. The perfect replacement for Richt had left just 2 weeks earlier to become the head coach at Temple. Now, you are probably feeling bad for Temple. They’ve lost 2 head coaches within weeks of each other. My suggestion for Temple: dry your tears with dollar bills:
This is a good hire by Miami. Manny Diaz has been a great DC for Miami and famously introduced the turnover chain to the college football world. He’s a young, electric coach that has a phenomenal defensive mind. All that he needs now is a good OC. He’ll be a great recruiter and will continue to give The U swagger. In what looked like a bleak situation for Miami just 12 hours ago has turned out not that bad.
