After losing the Pinstripe Bowl 35-3, Miami football now has a vacancy at the head coach position. Mark Richt announced today that he is retiring from coaching and stepping down as head coach of the Hurricanes.
According to Justin Rowland of Cats Illustrated, Mark Stoops is likely to be a candidate for the Miami heach-coach job.
It’s not surprising since Stoops has connections with Florida and Miami. Stoops was the DB’s coach at Miami from 2001-2004, and was the defensive coordinator at Florida State from 2009-2012.
As seen above, Rowland says that Stoops is “likely on Miami’s short list.”
I would be shocked if Stoops left for Miami. The program down there is a dumpster fire and isn’t close to what it was when Stoops was down there before. We will likely be hearing more news on this throughout the day so stay tuned.
