Crappy facilities.
Unrealistic expectations.

Jim Leaviit has been rumored to be contacted for the Miami Job. He has doen wonders for USF and Alabama is said to be actively pursuing him as well. He has said he wants to stay at USF, but only time will tell.

UPDATE

Miami Herald has said that Leavitt is the Top Candidate to take over The U, but when asked by the Local Station he said he is not going to dignify the question with a response.

WOW, i never thought i would see the day when a coach says no thanks i would rather stay at Rutgers than go to Miami.


I wouldn't have thought it would come either, but if you look at the state of the Miami program I don't know that I'd want to be associated with it either. They've got a terrible reputation and aren't a top 25 team either. I feel sorry for the coach who walks into that mess.



Yeah, who would want to coach a team that has won 5 championships in the last 23 years, has probably the best recruiting area in the country, and could be the guy to say look what I turned around. ;-7


Easy there. That wasn't a jab at the program's history or recruiting potential. I was just pointing out that the program is not what it used to be and has done enough things over the past year to tarnish their reputation. It's not an ideal situation to walk in to. I have a lot of respect for the history of The U, but you have to admit they've fallen recently.

Radio in Tampa is reporting that Butch Davis has offered Coker the offensive Coordinator position at UNC. Coker will coach the U in the Bowl game, but then could be headed for UNC and reunite with Butch.

It seems like it would be a pretty good situation to move into. A lot of returning starters and talent and relatively low expectations after a poor year. Plus they are playing in a weak conference.

I think UNC could become a power in the ACC with those 2 at the helm. Coker is a great O coor just a bad head coach.

It really wouldn't be difficult to turn around the Miami program for a good recruiter... South Florida is by far THE BEST recruiting grounds in the country...

With an asterisk! You played Nebraska, after all. We sucked right about then. 2006 Nebraska could beat 2001 Nebraska.
