They need to pay full market rate for a HC AND staff. No shortcuts. The only way you get a top guy. Now you see why it's a tough call.

Just so I'm clear, I'm just laying out the approximate financial cost of a coaching change. I'm not saying whether UM should or shouldn't do it.

My belief is, if you want to be a Top-10 national program, you need to do it. It's not my $ but $ will drive the decision.

Ohio who is this guy and how do we know if he's info accurate? Just curious

Darth 360Cane

Rumors, speculation and nonsense. Put a name to it or might as well leave it out.

Like Herbstreit saying Lucky Less going to Michigan, right? lol

Thanks for the info

And how quickly would a big hire sell those tickets? These coaches winning these 'ships these days don't come cheap. UM has never done it so I'd be surprised if they did. And I'm ok with surprises.

Question for the space

Do you think Duke should be bench for a week due to his recent fumbling problems?

Darth 360Cane

And certainly UM put in a clause for bowls, conference champ apperances, W-L column, etc. unless his agent really hung UM out to dry with the "cloud."

Go Canes

Interesting information but barring a total meltdown, he is not going anywhere this season.

I do think Les Miles will end up at Michigan this time. Before they hired Hoke they talked but LSU upped his contract and he stayed.

longtimecanefan

If Alfoldem wins 2 of the remaining games he will be back next year.

Going 1-5 or worse might change things...

And certainly UM put in a clause for bowls, conference champ apperances, W-L column, etc. unless his agent really hung UM out to dry with the "cloud."

Posted by: Darth 360Cane | October 06, 2014 at 11:23 AM

His agent SUPPOSEDLY also didnt tell him about the pending investigation although the reports and rumors were everywhere

pbcfrcane13

I don't know man remember Blake James didn't hire Golden. A new prez. Plus empty seats on Saturday like worse than usual may punch his ticket out of here.

Darth 360Cane

Sure. Goldie can save his job. Win the ACC next year and get into the playoffs. Is that going to happen though?

CaneRock

$10M to BO Golden?...that's His opinion, but I don't see it. I agree with what Lurker said awhile ago, with the extension as long as it was, no way in hell that UM would leave themselves on the hook for a 100% BO...I don't see it.

Darth 360Cane

Can we all just have a group hug and cry on each other's shoulders? It's been a real tough decade for us.

longtimecanefan

Taking preorders for "We Beat Cincinnati Convincingly " shirts.

Bonus...order two and get an orange tie for $1 more..

Darth 360Cane

Being a Miami fan is definitely not for the weak. lol

CaneRock

I say Golden's BO is 3, maybe $4M max.

CoCane

35 mil buyout. So what. Buy him out. Bring back Butch, win a sh*t load of games and make even more $. Duuuh...

Or keep Golden, keep losing games, fan support and you'll still end up paying him anyway...

I hope the administration isn't too stupid see that. If they are, F*CK UM AND THE DUM *SSES THAT RUN IT!

What's good Legion/Canespace; don't post too often anymore. However, there has to be major changes across the board. This team has totally underachieved. I have people in my neck of the woods feeling sorry for the U because they can not compete anymore. "Feeling sorry," for one of the most feared college football program that ever existed! What a travesty.

4-Real

Matt Shodell was told also that UM has protective buyout clause. If they didn't, they should stop teaching / practicing law.

CaneRock

And dude can miss me with that "upper echelon coach" nonsense, we just need to find a HC that's BETTER THAN GOLDEN! You can find one for 2-$2.5M a year.

Go Canes

Posted by: CaneRock | October 06, 2014 at 11:36 AM

That number is definitely way off. What good is a contract extension if they can basically buy you out for close to what you're going to make per year.

SOUP

I'm smiling because I've had the words "haven't won a bowl game since 2006" tattooed on my posts since my arrival at the Space.

Viva la space.

Posted by: Darth 360Cane | October 06, 2014 at 11:30 AM

This is TRUE but talking about "next year" in the middle of the current season shows just how bad this has become. (not taking a dig at U)

SOUP

Do you think Duke should be bench for a week due to his recent fumbling problems?

Posted by: SinisterCane | October 06, 2014 at 11:23 AM

NO

Go Canes

Posted by: CoCane | October 06, 2014 at 11:41 AM

This is also incorrect. We are never going to draw big and attendance to games is a small part of their income when compared to the money being generated by the new TV contract.

That number is only going to get bigger.

Even bowl revenue is distributed throughout the conference now. FSU did not keep the $10 million plus from the NC game last year.

Posted by: Darth 360Cane | October 06, 2014 at 11:32 AM

YES, and a case of bourbon, vodka and beer please.

Go Canes

The only thing I see their buyout having is an offset of whatever he makes at his next coaching stop.

If it's a $5 million contract somewhere else, then the school can offset his buyout by that amount.

There IT is right there.

CaneRock

LMAO! So UM is gonna pay somebody 8 digits not to coach...I don't see it.

#STEVIEWONDER!

SinisterCane

Buy him out and let's move on from this nightmare

SOUP

NEGATIVE.

It is over IF they lose to Cincy this week.

Hope and Change has become Despair and Stagnation...now theres a t shirt with a UM symbol on it!!!! For sale starting tomorrow at 9 am!!!!

Big U emblem on it, with Joe bidens open mouth and a foot in it....did it again did he not talking about Turkey!!!!

Lonesome Joe and Sweet Sweating Al Pa....two of a kind lots of promises no delivery!!!!

mi@mic@ne

Darn its to bad we didnt have a Jimmy Johnson or Butch before Goldilocks arrived. He could have been given the keys to a Porsche. Just like Ericson and Clappy got. They couldnt mess up if they tried. Oh well...

nemo2002

New t-shirt slogan:

The U $hould
FEAR THE TIE

I'm taking orders.

CaneRock

Watching the GT game from last year, Coley was better with Stephen Morris throwing to em'...the ball got there faster.

4-Real

Rock, I know 4 good coaches that would take that 2+mill in a heartbeat, cuz 3 of em ain't making nuthin rite now.

1. Schiano

2. Butch

3. Chud- got 10 mill from Cleveland not 2 coach in NFL 4 awhile, therefore he won't be 2 expensive unless he's greedy

4. Mario- currently making 450k as Saban's o-line coach. Think he wouldn't take 2 mill rite now?

CaneRock

CaneRock

So this Harbaugh not coming back to SF is gaining some steam huh...

raizecane

A day after Georgia Tech shredded the University of Miami’s defense on the ground, Miami coach Al Golden continued to defend the team’s defensive approach and blamed execution for several costly third-down collapses.

**********************************************

Are those who failed to execute paying the price at practice this week?? If not, Golden is the problem. I would have those at fault do extra stadiums / suicides, etc....and have them keep doing it until the lose last night's dinner.

Per @DaveJonesUFbeat

#Gators QB Treon Harris -- who helped rally the team Saturday -- is being investigated in a legal matter.

Go Canes

Interesting time in college football.

Spurrier, Saban, Miles and Meyer all struggling while up and coming programs are taking over.

Saw a stat that Saban and Meyer are now 0-3 against the last three ranked opponents they've played. Think that's wrong because I don't think Va Tech was ranked when they beat OSU, but interesting nonetheless.

This first playoff is going to be a doozy. We could see a one loss Auburn and-or Missippi State, FSU and likely a 2 loss team, probably from the Pac 10 in it.

David Jones @DaveJonesUFbeat · 15m 15 minutes ago

Gainesville source has confirmed that #Gators quarterback Treon Harris is being investigated in a legal matter.


RUH-ROH!

-------------------------------------------

Casale is a former agent. Now a media member. Do we KNOW it's accurate? No, but he would probably have a really good idea on the numbers being a former sports agent.

2 million in 2014, 2015 for a head coach on the Acc your looking at the middle of the road. Nope of we want a good head coach then miami can afford 3.5 this gets you a very good head coach with solid coordinators.
$$$$$ people.
I'm not sure what Schiano is doing
Butch asked for the job 4 years ago. . Now he had that paper cleaning him of anything to do with UNC and when Golden flirted with PSU he did a story with Susan saying how sorry he was and he would like to be interviewed and he is interested.
Chud would be awesome but he does have a small gig with the Colts.
I never liked Dave W as a head coach. .

Dark horses are Mario, Brent V from Clemson, Chad Morris and Jim Harbaugh

SOUP

Sweet Sweating Al Pa.

That has a nice ring to it.

Ohio_Cane

Keith Niebuhr ‏@Keith247Sports 55s55 seconds ago

Maybe Will should consider asking the baseball coach to suspend Treon Harris.

LOLOL

Ohio_Cane

If, and only IF, Mario left UM recently because he thought "Wow, this Golden guy can't coach for s#it, I gotta get outta here!" is the only way he's Miami's HC ever, IMO.

Not a fan of that man right now...
