Me first!

Manny is a good enough defensive coordinator. Manny is a high risk high reward defensive coordinator. If you have an offense that can score that will definitely do. Who are the great defensive coordinators in college?? Show me that SHORT list and I'm sure there is a list of games he was lit up. After Venables who?

Me thinks that UM needs a new AD.

There IT is right there.

solarcane

Temple fans pretty understanding about Manny situation

"Moves to the head of all time piece of shit coaches we've had or in his case almost had. Easily surpasses the Dazzler and Collins. If this is the kind of character this clown has, then good riddance."

HillviewCane

1) Manny was given a shot at DC and he performed extremely well. Let's not forget where we were on that side under Golden.

2) Manny is extremely well connected. If there was ever a chance for his people to use their leverage this was absolutely the time to do it.

He loves and get's the program. We will see how he does

JaxCane

We have all the "yeah but" excuses for wherever we try and take our narrative. I didn't want Manny but I'm excited to know he's hear and we will have a new offensive mind on the other side of the ball. Before the bowl game all everyone posted was "imagine how good our defense would play with a functional offense" okay let's see how this works. OC and line coach will be the biggest hires. Hopefully he hires someone he will give full range on offense so he can put his attention squarely on defense and special teams....

Everything about this hire wreaks of amateurism.

No National search.

No thinking and waiting.

No listening to coaches interested in the job.

No asking what or who they would bring with them.

No interviews to justify their choice.

Our main problem is substandard offensive production. What exactly is head coach Diaz going to do about THAT?

58 Straight

Not renewing season tickets until I see the coaching choices and changes. The dumpster fire is definitely not out just yet, and may never be at this rate.

TonyCane

I think this will work out. Just a feeling.

Early thoughts:
1) Diaz apparently has sizable support in the BOT. That helps. Shannon did not
2) Diaz has political connections that the other coaches lack
3) Diaz can leverage both for more spending and support, moreso than Shannon, Coker, or Golden

The hire does help continuity on defense, which wasn’t broken to begin with. The key of course is getting a strong, innovative OC.

As a friend just told me, high risk, high reward.

And as for Cristobal....I’d like him here. But he won’t have Alabama bagmen to aid him. So there is that.

Old Skool

For me, it feels like the contestants voted and Miss Congeniality won before the show was broadcast. The judges and the audience had no say.

Is few hours a genuine search and deliberation?
Carpe Diaz is right. The corollary should be "sic semper Athletic Directors"

Hello, is this Vista Print?

Good this is head coach Manny Diaz, I would like to change my business cards.

What do you mean they are already printed.

No I'm the head coach of The Miami Hurricanes.

No I don't want the 5000 Temple Head Coach cards.

Yes I did just order them Friday.

No I'm the not the Temple head coach
I'm the Miami Hurricanes head coach.
No I am not shitting you.

No, not Mark, I'm Manny Diaz head fugging coach of the Miami Hurricanes.

Hello....hello?

JaxCane

one of the first thing Manny did at Temple was hire St. Joseph's prep head coach Gabe Infante to his staff...he won 4 state titles and was named the high school All American game coach... He's going to step it up a lot more with his hiring at the U!!!

"Miami is home. The University of Miami is home. The U has truly been 'the job' for me since I first got into coaching," said Diaz in a school release.

Okay... For all his connections to the city and talk about home, when Diaz had the choice to stay or go. He chose FSU.

This is a horrible hire! The administration should be ashamed of themselves. This sounds like old school City of Miami political shenanigans. Manny Diaz was overrated as a defensive coordinator. He was run out of Texas and his defenses padded their stats against Savannah State, North Carolina, and other bottom.feeders. They were whipped even by substandard offenses like LSU and Wisconsin. Imagine if they had played Syracuse or God forbid Clemson. It would have been a blood bath. For those who support this hire what top offensive coordinator is going to work for a first time head coach? Barry Jackson is already floating the name of Frank Ponce. A guy who has been the offensive coordinator at Appalachian State and is now the QB coach at Louisville which is a program in ruins right now. So we are already dumpster diving for coaches. Mark my words this is going to be a disaster!!! The U is dead!!! To hell with Julio Frenk, Blake James, and every other member of the administration who made this nightmare a reality. Im done!!!

We needed a HC that was going to bring in a OC and DC so we could get rid of Banda and Patke... now they're staying 🤧😭

This must be as I said earlier a wtf hire. Nothing against Manny but he would be better going to Temple, get his feet wet where their is not the pressure there is here. This to me is a out as bad as hiring Shannon.
Maybe it all works out depending on the Offensive Coordinator he hires. He he stays pro style, The Herb is done with this. He dam well better fire Searles and Richt Jr.
Dam this pisses me off
All my excitement is now gone, in one fleeting moment
A save the recruiting class hire, fo sho.

The joke is on us!

58 Straight

Not renewing season tickets. Thank you Blake James, U just saved me over $2000!

TonyCane

I’m going to go out on a limb that and say it’s different than Shannon because:

1) Diaz actually emotes. Shannon was stoic. Teams take on the personalities of their coaches, good or bad. That was the complaint about Richt

2) Diaz MAY be able to parlay support to further enhance the program. Emphasis on may. Shannon was given pennies to fill out his staff.

As for the BOT, there was an article posted this evening on Canesinsight shortly before the announcement that said a portion of the BOT had already aligned behind Diaz. It also said that Cristobal had reached out to Miami. He would have been a better choice in my opinion.

Now that Diaz is hired, Im just trying to ponder it and see if this really has a chance of working. It’s not a home run hire...such as getting Urban Meyer. It’s a risk. But I think that there are reasons to believe it can, hopefully. Again, just as if Richt had remained...its all contingent upon the offense. Many people here said that Diaz left for Temple out of frustration...clearly he knows what is broken.

Dude on a Pale Horse

I want everyone to pile sh*t high and heavy on Manny right now. Why? Because he needs to be hardened by this. Lazy b*tch hires aint gonna cut it chief. Not hitting numbers every year at every position aint gonna cut it. Losing to FSU or UF aint gonna cut it. He needs to feel this pressure and work relentlessly to weather the storm coming his way, all while building it back at everyone else. Hes got us against the world in the locker room right now. He needs to hardened that a weapon of destruction.This could toughen him, hes definitely smart enough to win. Seems to have the right attitute. Now he needs to pick some brains of the legends.

Herbieibis

We definitely ain't hitting numbers this year again. 13 slots left to field and most all the horses have left the starting date. This is one effed ending to shyt year.

DallasTX Cane

So to make sure I understand corrrectly, in the time it took me to get a haircut, pack a bag, and drive to Houston (headed to New Orleans for NE Eve & Sugar Bowl) - about 6 hours total - The U lost a head coach, conducted a nationwide search, interviewed candidates, discussed their options, and hired a new head coach. That is some efficient as sh_t work right there. Wish my company could move 1/2 as fast.

I loved Manny as our DC. I was leery at first given his failure at UTX, but he came through. The D has been a consistent positive under his watch and was really good this season. Even so, I cannot fathom the how’s and why’s of us not even giving any other folks a chance. How’s it worked out the last few times we tried 1st time HC’s?!? Manny will have my full support and I hope like hell he breaks the “sh_t for brains” HC hire streak we’re on. But I am totally shocked that we didn’t even take a couple of days to gauge interest. Reading all the posts, I started to imagine an Urban Meyer or Leach the Pirate stalking the sideline at Hard Rock. Talk about getting the blood pumping! And enough of the “Leach is average” BS. That dude turns crap programs into winners, puts QBs no one else wants into The League, and has as extensive and impressive a coaching tree throughout college ball as anyone this side of Nick Saban. He’s too independent and unpredictable for the U, but would’ve been a great fit and throwback to the OLD DAYS when U foootball equally offended and kicked azz.

But, here we are... back to hoping a brand new HC can figure it out and build a winner. Good luck Manny...the “fans” will give you about a game before they form their rock-solid, I’m never wrong, I know so much because I was alive when JJ coached, I’m a bad azz that doesn’t tolerate losing, I was a bad azz in high school, and I still jazzercise to this day OPINIONS.

AeroCane

I agree with you soup and others - this is typical Blake James being effing lazy and lieing - did the same thing before he hired the GA reject. He’s definitely not the splash or exciting hire but I’ll say this: I’m more excited about him than I have been in a while - better than stubborn, stupid looking Shannon, the tie wearing terrible defense golden, and the worst of all of them Richt! This guy will bring passion and if he does actually do what he says (use the talents on the offense to the best of their advantages and be agressive) then we might be decent. He needs to hire an experienced, aggressive OC, fire a bunch of people and get ST back to the U standards. Jmo but I’ll wait to be totally pissed until I see how he rounds out the coaching staff and see if as HC he can close with any big dogs in recruiting (Bogle, Stevenson, hasslewood, etc)
PS soup, loved the article (especially part about Shula and the dolphins-lol)

UMike

I'm not terribly upset over this hire, but I can't help but wonder, did we even try? I wonder if they had Diaz pegged as the guy from the start but they were waiting on CMR. He has that old Miami mentality and I believe after watching the shit show on offense the last couple years he will want a system that better fits our athletes. That's what he did on D.

hillviewcane

I totally get how people are pissed about the hire. Honestly Cristobal would have been my first pick if we were going with a Miami guy. The man was the first to win at FIU. Then probably Chud. However Manny has performed at Miami. It's a definitely a risk. However, most of the times our D was out performed had to do with the O putting them in terrible positions. I mean 5 turnovers against Wisconsin etc. That being said we didn't have many 9 to 6 or 12 to 3 score games. We will know soon enough

JaxCane

Was manny my first choice, No, Does everyone have to like the hire? No. But there's hyperbole and then there is dude you make absolutely no sense. To call his defense overrated after finishing consecutive years

1st passing yards allowed
1st 3rd down conversion
3rd fewest first downs allowed
1st in the country in tackles for loss
2nd team pass efficiency on defense
2nd in total defense
giving up only 18.ppg
having to play opposite of that garbage can offense is Amazing...This wasn't a defense that was allowed to play consistently with two score leads or could rely on the offense to put together back to back time consuming drives... This defense had to deal with an offense that finished with more turnovers (26) than all but 5 FBS teams..A offense that went three and out time after time. A defense who had to play and take chances knowing the offense would go halves without converting a third down...To some how say his defense is overrated really puts a damper on your credibility in terms of football understanding..

We had to pay 4 mil to get Manny, and that hurt, so there is NO way we could've done the same with Cristobal, who has a MUCH higher buyout! This makes sense, and keeps continuity, and the kids know Manny, and he also KNOWS what's KILLING us, the O's deficiencies. So with that, I'm sure he's going to make a solid choice for an OC, who can get the most out the players we have.

Going to wait and see how he revamps the scheme and mindset of this offense before I judge this hire.

solarcane

Richt could have saved all the drama by just announcing a lot earlier what he already knew.

He steps down, Manny promoted to interim HC, Manny sinks or swims.
We have time to actually look for the new guy, or Manny gets an offense in place that can score that magic 34 pts a game we always hear about,

He was just on Joe Rose - I love his energy

Joe rose: Have you thought about your first game against your former boss Mullens yet?

Diaz: 243 days away.

I remember watching him for the first time at the scrimmage at Oxbridge Academy his first year and was impressed with his energy and coaching effort. He was relentless.

BigWindyCane1

Funny post Soup! 😆😆😆😆

IMO, this is not all doom and gloom. IMHO, Diaz might be the more prudent, economically feasible choice by Blake James. With Diaz on board, the Canes can get recruits like Stephenson to commit and convince juniors like Shaq to stay. Then, hire a good offensive coordinator who can utilize the talent on the roster and also help recruit.

CGNC

Posted by: solarcane | December 31, 2018 at 08:24 AM

This was not planned. From what I heard, offensive changed had been discussed and were in the making and he challenged them. So he was allowed to "resign". He should have taken note from Jimbo Fisher, those Custer stand-offs don't always work out. If you think about it, it is the only scenario that makes sense. It was too weird.

He is gone. I am glad.

Go - I know, it was kind a knee jerk reaction. If Diaz hires the right coaches, he will be successful.

Manny

On the plan at QB:

“Well, that is, if you just watched the College Football Playoff, it’s not complicated. … Welcome to college football in this day and age. if you don’t have excellence at that position, you’re not going to compete. … We have some young guys on campus … I think it’s their time to turn the page. But at the same time, we have to create competition. … We’ve got to get the quarterback position up and running and we will look anywhere we can, whether it’s off campus or on campus...”

On Jarren Williams:

“What he’s going to have is what all the guys on campus are going to have … an opportunity to be the starting quarterback at the University of Miami. … Everybody loves the backup quarterback because the next guy always has to be better…

“We have to find a guy, no matter who it is. Create competition and we’ll find somebody who the locker room believes can lead us to victory.”

Solar, IMO, Diaz said the right thing about modern college offenses. Diaz properly implemented his modern updated ideas on defense, using South FLORIDA talent. IMHO, it’s worth it to give him an opportunity to have his ideas implemented on offense.

Windy yea,

If Diaz makes qb play and play calling the number one priorities I think we will be good to go.

Our defense was on the field way too. long every game, I am sure a lot of guys were nicked up and exhausted.

I'm not as worried about having a top five 5 recruiting class as some people.
We get guys with the old time Cane work ethic on offense we will be OK.

TOTALLY agree Raizecane, our D was LEGIT, and they showed it time and time again! The O let them down constantly, and that will wear on guys after a while! Manny understands that side of the field, and IMO he can bring that to the O side as well, and hire an OC who'll bring the FIRE!!

The defense was rock solid all season. Even in the Wisconsin game, the offfense was so putrid and the picks so frequent we were lucky to only be down 14-3 at half.

With most defense we’d have been down by three TDs or more.

Alex D

I would like to know how the South Florida high school football coaches feel about this hire? More 5 star talent has left the South Florida area than those that have decided to stayed. Also, will this hire stopped 5 star players from American Heritage, St. Thomas Aquinas or even IMG Academy from going elsewhere? That is one of the bigger question I believe that everyone is missing.

For all intense and purpose, we somewhat know that this offense can not be as bad as they were this year? I have another proclamation; if Coach/Mayor Diaz (CMD) can get this offensive line to be as conditioned, quick, strong and come off the ball and attack like his defensive line did, then this offensive will flourish with a capable quarterback and receiver that can hang on to the ball. Just my take.

Happy New Year Legion/Canespace!

ColaCane

WWIN, well he sure as hell did at the U! Maybe because he was able to get the right type of recruits here, and couldn't at his other stops, but point is, you cannot argue that the guy IMPROVED every yr on the D side. It doesn't take rocket science to know what our O needs. I'm also listening toe ESPNU on XM, and they're talking about CMR now, and that was hurried his retirement is that he was considering making his son OC, and the Canes Admins, said "HELL TO THE NO", so that was that!

Tim

Another lazy in house hire! This is similar to what USC did a few years ago. That program is also trying to return to glory and everyone was excited about a national search for a top candidate and instead they went with the in house candidate Kim Helton and everyone has seen how that has worked out. In fact if their Athletic Director Lynn Swann wasn't as ignorant as Blake James is Helton would have been fired after this season. Maybe Diaz turns out to be a hidden gem but until he shows and proves this is a bad hire and if it goes bad Miami needs to fire Blake James along with Manny a few years down the road.

Times change, athletes are different than years' past. Finding a coach that relates seems more important than one's previous success. Look at the NFL, where players make 10X (or more) more than coaches. Who do you think the owners would side with in a dispute? College players are an extension of that power, as they will soon play in the NFL. Let's see what CMD can do? I think we will be pleasantly surprised. C-A-N-E-S...Canes!

I go to bed and am happy that we are taking our time looking for a coach. I am just leaving for my chiropractor appt., and opened up the blog.
Holy Crap! Is that true? Why do we have a BOT?? They are lazy, lazy, lazy.
Diaz was great at the Um but he is now the HC at Temple. What the hell happened??
I rely on ALL of you expert canespacers to give me the truth. How do the players feel and the former greats?
Going to my appt. Back in an hour.

Manny's job 1 is get an OC, and a QB. Make sure the guy we get can DEVELOP the QB's we have too, because I think they can BOTH be very good, they just need proper teaching!

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

The general consensus is that the players are good with this announcement.

Mark you calendars and make your travel plans for September 5, 2020. Temple v. Miami at Hard Rock Stadium. The big Golden-Diaz "Show Me The Money" Bowl. Hopefully, we'll be "relevant" by then.

P.S. Wouldn't it be great if MANNY wears the Miami-centric "turnover chain" during the game - kinda like the head coach at Hawaii who wears a flower lei on game day? Hey Manny! "If you got it, flaunt it!"
