.@MichaelSanchize I spoke w a close friend who is a friend of Butch's
Butch's agent suppose to be in talks w 2 high level Miami folks 2day

mi@mic@ne

if they dont hire butch ...who the whole cane family is behind then the next time this failure happens someone is gonna pay..thats my take

raizecane

I'll be honest...i don't care who we hire as long as he brings the program back to the winning tradition we fans expect. Can i get an AMEN!! ?

Ohio_Cane

This hire HAS TO BE sooner than later, which is why I don't think any current HC will get the job here. They can't speak about it until they're fired or the season is over.

Fuente, Herman, Pagano etc are out, IMO, only because we can't wait for their seasons to be over.

Sarasota 'cane

I think we'll know who the next coach is by Saturday. I just have a hunch that they want to have this in the bag asap.

My last hunch was that Golden would be in the bag by Sunday!

THE MAN

Posted by: mi@mic@ne | October 26, 2015 at 03:42 PM

Randy's downfall was his personality and inablitly to attract quality assistant coaches. I believe comparing them is apples to oranges. Venables has the total resume you look for in a coordinator ready to make the next step. Could you say the same for Randy? Or Coker? HC is more than just X's and O's. It's about how to get through to 100 18-22 year olds and your assistant coaches. It's scheme, personality, relationship building, trust, talent evaluation, committment, etc. The list goes on and on. Randy or Coker had very few on that list in my opinion so it does an injustice to compare.

Jeff White ‏@JeffWhiteWins 4m4 minutes ago

come on guys I set it up on a tee for you lol
now since he has come out publicly about the job
its Butch Davis in talks to be Canes coach


I hope this guy isn't full of s#it

Go Canes

Whoever the coach is, retaining this kid has to be priority 1, 2, 3 and 4.

@DavidFurones90: Jack Allison's HS coach Dave Marino tells me Allison was disappointed and him sticking depends on new coach and whether team retains Coley.

Sarasota 'cane

Chud hasn't recruited college kids in 15 years. I'm not anti Chud, I just think that there are 3 guys being considered that have a better recruiting resume than Chud does.

He's #4 on my list.

Lurker

No, Sota is right. Chud has zero recruiting ties right now. Been in the pros like 15 years.

To me he he's the least attractive of the candidates, just from a personality standpoint. Good offensive mind, though.

mi@mic@ne

hire lol

mi@mic@ne

chud and clappy were great o coordinators here but just like Randy your taking a chance in moving them into the head coaching position...its hard not to see an assistant moving up to a head coach not as a dollar store higher...you need a guy like Butch who has experience with demanding to be backed with money in order to run the program at this championship level... you saw what happened when they hired Randy on the cheap...

Lurker

Hire Doc Holliday.

Just for the name alone.

But do we get the Dennis Quaid Doc Holliday or the Val Kilmer Doc Holliday?

RCCF

For everyone who thinks Chudz has no recruiting ties what did he do as a coach, sit on his thumbs? LoL

No Recruiting lol

30CINCO

He can't get a HC job or he'll lose the money that is still owed to him. His contract with UNC ends in 2015

Posted by: thirstybuzzardcane | October 26, 2015 at 03:26 PM
---------------------------------------------------
Makes zero sense.

UNC owed him 2.4 mil spread out over 4 years, so he is making 600k per year for doing nothing.

Great gig for someone who doesn't want back into coaching. But he has stated he wanted to coach since he was let go, he would be making over 2 mil / year anywhere he went, if not more.

Last I checked, 2 mil per year > 600k.

Sarasota 'cane

One thing is for certain, with Butch so publicly campaigning so passionately for his old job, he is all but guaranteeing that UM's next coach will be a great coach with a proven track record. There's no way they can pass him over for some Dollar Store retread like Golden.

mi@mic@ne

Butch is not a retread.. there are a lot of good coaches who have a lower IQ.. Especially a football IQ..your also getting a guy who has coached in two super bowls...lol its a no brainer.. the guy is smarter than anyone out there

j.w.

his is what employers look at. A timeline of your most recent performance.

Coaching employment - Butch Davis

2007-2010 UNC
-W/L record: 28-23
-Bowl record 1-2
-ACC record 15-17
-2008 and 2009 wins vacated (total 16 wins vacated)
-Fired 2010 amid academic scandal (Blake scandal also on record)

2010-present
-Unemployed as coach
-1 year as consultant in 2012
-Fired with entire staff 2013

This is his recent track record in football. His recent resume. Which is the most relevant. Just saying.

Posted by: Lurker | October 26, 2015 at 02:39 PM
To quote someone more famous and smarter than either of us, So What? It isn't "most relevant" necessarily and his record at Caroling came after taking a job that had truly bottomed out. Don't forget most of his North Carolina rosters were better than our teams of the same era and he kicked our arses on the field pretty much every time we played. He's been there and succeeded at this school. Every day the UNC mess moves further away from him, making him more hire-able.

Posted by: mi@mic@ne | October 26, 2015 at 03:03 PM

No one ever walked in as a HC. They all started somewhere. He has all the tools. Small school HC with success is not the right fit in my opinion and retreads aren't either. There are many reasons why they aren't coaching currently at the HC level. I'll take a top coordinator any day over those other options. The other options are much more risky in my opinon. Top coordinators have success making the switch. Obviously there are examples for both sides good and bad, but I bet more good then bad.

mi@mic@ne

Jimmy, Erickson were head coaches even tho they were not a proven winner

orange 'n green in the vein

Posted by: RCCF | October 26, 2015 at 02:38 PM

Who do you want to be Miami's replacement for the interim guy running this thing now? If you don't want to name names just give me what you want to see in the '16 opener different from the last five seasons instead because I'm curious.

mi@mic@ne

Venables has not been a head coach...thats a big upgrade to take a chance on.

THE MAN

Posted by: USAFCane | October 26, 2015 at 02:54 PM

Venables has all the traits you are looking for. Young, recruits well, defense minded, proven results at big time schools, fiery and from ACC and most likely stay in ACC. No other coach out there even comes close to what he has accomplished recently. I know everyone always says a Miami guy, but all past great Miami coaches weren't Miami guys, just good at their craft. I'm always against retreads, but that's just my opinion. Give me a proven, current guy anyday!

mi@mic@ne

If we talk about getting this guy or that guy who can coach his style of defense ...or we want the guy with the dynamic offense we are asking for trouble...its not the style of offense or defense...we had one of the best offensive minds in college football in Erickson..yet without the talent it did not matter...we need the guy who brings such good talent that we can run a few plays and they cant stop us and a vanilla defense that is stout ... Butch is the only one who can accomplish these goals

I remember the pundits talking about all the NFL talent that Butch had assembled on that d at NC ..but they were suspended for our game

As I stated earlier about Butch's stint at UNC you can cherry pick his record to say anything you want while simultaneously glossing over the fact that he assembled personnel that rivaled his championship personnel at UM.

He went into his last season with both hands tied behind his back so it's not surprising that a lot of folks didn't see what was happening before it imploded.

Did I mention that he is the best available candidate for the UM job regardless of his time at UNC??

Do you think it's other coaches out there that would have done better at UNC?

Posted by: WWIN | October 26, 2015 at 02:36 PM
-------------------------------------------

Not sure.

I'm sure there's some elite coaches out there that could've done better. Saban, Meyer, etc, but guys like that would never take a job at UNC.

Not to mention it's not like it's easy to recruit to UNC considering they're known for nothing but soccer and basketball, generally.

Lurker

Sota, I read your entire post. Butch isn't the only person being mentioned or endorsed. I'm just disputing your snow ball notion. There's no snowball, imo. Just a lot of noise. Not only for Butch either.

USAFCane

I deliberately got off Canespace yesterday, never expecting the AG firing so soon. I missed the biggest day in UM football for 5 years! For a day canespace will be united, then the debate and ultimate hire will divide us again. One thing for sure, if the hire isn't Butch, some folk on here will explode.

As for his replacement? So. Cal job has to be filled 1st, after that I think we are just edged by USC (Carolina) due to money only. My short list (not in order) is as follows:

Smart - can't believe no one mentioned him until about an hour ago. Would be a slam dunk from the Saban tree. So. Car likely having a long look also.

Herman - might have to wait on So.Cal, though I think USCwill be looking bigger. From the Meyer tree. Remember we could have made a run at Summlin? He'd be a slam dunk.

Christobal - not a traiter IMO. Smartest man in the room when he bolted to Saban. Years under Saban now, strong ties, will recruit great. Another slam dunk.

Davis - for all the reasons mentioned. Just don't think it will happen.

Schiano - almost the opposite of AG. Would fire this team up. Can recruit, NFL experience. Could have a Harbaugh like impact. Couldn't go wrong.


All I know is that it is exciting. Any of the above and the other will be a massive upgrade. Take care of the X and Os and the talent will take care of the rest.

Onward and upward, a great day to be a Cane!

So we settle for a bargain coach who if he succeeds is gonna want more money or hes gone..i mean you pay him now or in two years or he is a bust once again..in which you hired him against the outcry of a coach who actually wants to be here for all the right reasons and who has a history of loading up on NFL players. What happened to common sense? If we had it we would not have endured Folden and paid him millions to leave as the worse coach in history...

Read the whole post before commenting. It's not just the bloggers, it's the local and national news pundits as well as former coaches and players. Don't cherry pick my posts to support your position. The Butch Davis candidacy for HC is a snowball rolling downhill. Butch Davis is 10x more likely to be UM's next coach than he was last night and it hasn't even been 24 hours yet. There's no telling how much more support he can garner in the next 24.

I guess these bots did not start out in the bottom of their profession and leave a job to get to their current position...God forbid they have a history of quitting a job for a better position...very hypocritical

nemo2002

[Miami] is a relatively small, private school in a market where support and interest is always going to be fickle. You play in a pro stadium that is nearly hour away from campus and too big to fill unless it’s just a massive game. And from a budget standpoint, Miami operates financially more as a “have-not” than a “have” within the ACC.

By that alone, you can pretty much cross any coach making $3 million or more off the list. Barring an administrative about-face from the way Miami has operated recently, this is going to be more of a bargain-basement type of hire than a big splash.

Though nobody in position of authority has ruled out Davis, two Board of Trustees members said they would be surprised if Davis, 63, is considered because of the way he left North Carolina, amid an academic scandal. Even though he wasn’t directly implicated by the NCAA, many believe Davis was tarnished and he hasn’t found a job since. One trustee said discussion of Davis usually elicits an eye roll among UM officials.

As the day wears on the people who think Butch is a strong possibility and a viable candidate are beginning to drown out the "they'll never hire him" crowd.

Not just on this blog either. The former player's as well as the local and national pundits are all in lock step that Butch is the best candidate and was also cleared of any wrongdoing.

It hasn't even been 24 hours yet and his candidacy is looking more and more like the best case scenario. The BOT is reading the same info we are so many of them may be coming around as well.

If they brought him in for an interview I think he could easily assuage the powers that be that he could turn the product on the field around quickly as well as maintain discipline on and off the field.

Sarasota 'cane

Yeah the ex-players should start at the bottom like everyone else. Dorsey and Randy are great examples.
Speaking of Shannon, would anyone have an issue with Butch bringing Randy in to run the defense?

Is anyone really Butch or no one? Haven't seen that sentiment. Bottom line: we can't do worse than what we have had over the past few years. Don't worry about the perfect hire, make a good one and we will improve.

Now, I don't think Ed Reed would be the best to start his coaching career as a HC at UM, but holy shit at least make him DB coach lol

He'd be 10000000000 times better than Paul Williams.

Ed Reed says he would entertain a call from @MiamiHurricanes regarding the head coaching position.

Sota, that may very well be true. But we have to look no further that FSU to see what a talented assistant from the SEC can do.

If Smart is legitimately interested, he is my new #1 choice.

He'd be an SEC carpetbagger. As soon as he established his local recruiting ties he'd bolt for the first SEC job available IMO. He's probably a better fit for South Carolina anyway.
