Al Golden to Coach Hurricanes

Al Golden has been offered and accepted the Miami coaching job, a source confirmed on Sunday.

The 41-year-old Golden spent five seasons at Temple, transforming the Owls from a program that was 1-11 in his first season to winning 19 games in his past two seasons at the Philadelphia school.

He would succeed Randy Shannon, who was fired after the Hurricanes (7-5) finished with a loss to South Florida.

The Owls went 8-4 this season, beating a Connecticut team that is headed for a BCS bowl by two touchdowns. They were not invited to a bowl game.

My two favorite teams are FAU, and who ever is beating FIU!

He's always being mentioned for NFL coaching vacancies. I don't think he's going to get any and if he doesn't we should seriously consider him

Wow, the Hurricanes standards drop a lot and fast. He was not even mentioned early on.

Golden will find that life at UM will be much different than with Temple in the MAC with six or seven really weak ass teams to beat up on. I don't think he will do much better than Gill did going from Buffalo to Kansas.

And the poor fans at Temple, first they go 8-4 but get shafted by the bowls and now they lost their coach too. Bad week for those Owls!

Randy Edsel at UConn was the much better choice. There's a big difference in going from Temple to Miami.

Even see if you can get permission to talk to Richt who has Miami ties

Richt is actually from Boca. If UGA is ever STUPID enough to fire him or force him out, Owls should grab him in a flash if they have a brain.

Temple was 8-4 this year but had only one decent win, vs. UCONN. Also beat Villanova (FCS), Central Michigan, Army, Bowling Green, Buffalo, Akron and Kent St. Combined for 27-57 record (including both bowl teams). Lost to Penn St., N. IL, Ohio and Miami-Ohio. Not a powerhouse among them.

MAC accomplishments will not hold water at UM, playing full ACC schedule and real tough OOC games too!

Richt, though comes across as a nice family man with all of the adopted kids and all that, is running a program that is beating out Florida with the number of player ARRESTS in the last few years!!! 25 since 2008.

Wins are not that important to me.
