Al Golden Fired by the Miami Hurricanes

By Jason McIntyre

Al Golden has been fired as coach of the Miami Hurricanes one day after the program suffered its worst loss ever.

Golden was a dead man walking all season, but losing 58-0 to Clemson Saturday was the final straw. The Miami job will be attractive, because someone will inherit a QB – Brad Kayaa – who has an NFL future, and also because of all the talent at the high school level in South Florida.

After 4.5 seasons with Miami, Golden amassed 32-25 record, went to two bowl games, but the Hurricanes weren’t considered on the level of ACC foes Clemson and Florida State.
