I was hoping Miami would mess that up. Hopefully UT will go to Jerry Gray for DC now.

Isn't recruiting a large piece of the job description for a coordinator? I do not recall talent being an issue in Miami if memory serves me well.

yes, he did a damn fine job recruiting. but he should do even better as head coach.

talent isn't an issue, but we have lot some of the bigger recruits to UF and FSU. i'm greedy, so i want as many 5-stars as possible.

"The statistics are staggering, both nationally and in New England. Of 616 football teams affiliated with the National Collegiate Athletic Association, only 16, or 2.6 percent, are guided by African-American head coaches, even though an estimated 19,667, or 32.7 percent, of the players last year were black, according to an NCAA survey (the figures exclude historically black colleges and universities)."

http://www.boston.com/sports/college...lege_football/

If this is true I'm just happy an African-American is getting another chance at a major program especially after the Notre Dame disaster.

I don't see why Ty Willingham was such a huge disaster. Looking at it now... aren't most of the players on that team right now still leftover from his time there.

Black/ white whatever that is just a job with HUGE expectations period and i think Ty handled it with class.

I wasn't referring to Ty. I was referring to the way Notre Dame handled that situation with him. I think he did a fine job in a almost impossible situation.

You can say black/white whatever but the fact of the matter is Ty was the only coach that Notre Dame never let finish out the contract. Why that is only they know but I can't believe it was because he wasn't doing better than the previous coach.

well, it's pretty obvious notre dame hired BECAUSE he was black, as opposed to this hire, where shannon just so happens to be black. he's clearly the right man for the job here.

Default Re: Miami hire Randy Shannon as Head Coach

Looks like the typical "we didn't get the guy we wanted so hired the assistant."

Sorry that is what Florida and Florida St. are going to tell recruits. They fumbled the hiring IMO. Not saying Shannon is not qualified or a great coach, just that when you publicly go after the guy from Rutgers and he turns you down and then you have a want list, with a lot of names, none of which I saw Shannon name. Kinda looks mishandled by the "U".

Good luck in the recruiting wars.

I agree.

I'm gonna play the race card here because I think it will have an effect.

I think that a young black head coach will have a better chance of recruiting young black talent than an old white guy like Coker.

I'm not saying that the athletes are racists, I just think that Shannon will be able to relate to them better than Coker & it will help him tremendously in recruiting.

i can't think of any QB at miami that was from florida. they ALWAYS go out of state. ALWAYS. california, ohio, or jersey, it seems.

although it's funny that you mention the state of texas, becuase the hurricanes have a commitment from 4-star QB Nick Fanuzzi from san antonio.
