Haven't heard of that, but could you imagine the points the Canes would put up in his offensive scheme?

Doubt recruits wanting to go to the NFL would want to play in that system.

I can't see Miami running that system. For one, you don't have the personel, and two, no recruit is going to want to be seen as a "system" player. This move would be bad for you team and would not work well until you have the proper players.

I have a friend who is on the Texas Tech coaching staff, he said that Leach is going to Miami, said they had a meeting last night to discuss his departure.

the only rumors i have heard are from miami and they think it will probably be leach and an austin radio station reported an announcement could be as early as tomorrow. no link or any thing, just a rumor. the radio station also reported that art briles (not sure if that is how you spell his name) is the top candidate to replace leach at TT.

Mike Leach reportedly interested in Miami job
By Susan Miller Degnan

MIAMI - Though many coaches nationwide have spent this week denying interest in the head-coaching jobs at Miami, Alabama and North Carolina State, it appears Texas Tech coach Mike Leach is intrigued by the Miami opening - and likely has strong interest.

Leach, who spends several days a year in Key West with his assistant coaches, declined an interview request by The Miami Herald this week. But one person in the UM football program said Leach has made it clear within the college coaching community that he is extremely interested in pursuing the job. Another person who is close to Leach indicated he would be receptive to contact by Miami

Well im sure he'll just make it more of a spread offense rather than the full blown airial attack that we have. My idea as of why he made our offense that way is because he gets the 4th choice of recruits as Texas, Oklahoma, and A&M usually get the top prospects. Personally, I think it's a good job on his part of doing what he can with not as much talent. I want to see what he can do with talent and if he'll run the spread still (a top QB recruit they got is a speedster I played against). Congrats Leach, good luck in South Beach. Bring in Briles, he looks like the perfect replacement (went to Tech and has the offense).

I would too. He has no experience landing any top recruits and Miami is in turmoil and needs a proven recruiter to take over. The talent level is going to drop and running this offense isn't going to help turn any prosects on to Miami. This would be a piss-poor move for Miami IMO.

You need to have more respect for Leach and more faith. He's turned a school and program with no history or tradition who gets 5th choice out of recruits in the mid west IF THAT, and continually puts Tech in position to suceed every year. Give him the chance to recruit top talent at a school and program that top players will actually want to go to, and I feel he'll do well.

It will be interesting to see what he can do with a school like miami. I wouldn't really worry about recruiting because he will implement a system throws the ball around and puts up points, which should attract kids. Plus, randy shannon will probably be kept as D cordinator and he does a lot of the recruiting. However, this isn't the kind of big name guy miami wanted and will have to win over a lot of people.

Me too, I want Briles to stay in Houston. But the Big 12 is a bigger league than Conference USA, and with that should be bigger pay. Plus Kolb is leaving and it could be big drop off for U of H next year. Might be the right to time, I hope he stays.

Also a big mistake for Miami, a systems coach not what they need.

Someone told me that Bernie Kosar is interested in the Miami job. Anybody think he has a shot?...

bernie kosar being hired would pretty much satisfy some alumni, i guess. but as a coach or recruiter? i have NO clue how that would go. NONE. i imagine he'd just be some sort of figurehead or something.

i'd love it. but he does not fit the mold as a miami coach at ALL. too much like coker.

i'd like to have his offense, though.
