One final thing on CMR.

The guy is a total class act.

Wish him all the best and happy he got out when he thought it was time.

Much respect.

Well said,fully agree!

TruCane81

We need to hire quickly. Shaq and Pickney might stay if it's a home run hire! And plus we need to end recruiting with a bang!

Butch is the only guy that makes sense right now!

Three year deal?

HCIW?

Is it foolish to think Butch has five years in him? I don’t think so. But three years of high energy work could be HUGE for us.

There are a lot of unknown candidates that could do well. I think maybe let Butch hire an up and coming coordinator to groom.

I think the Kiffen as oc and hciw could work. Lots of options.

I just want a strong recruiter and innovative oc. Let the defense play aggressive man and they will be ok.

This got my brain spinning.

WOW!

TruCane81

I caught hell suggesting Richt would hang it up on his own accord.

But that look he had was undeniable.

All criticism aside I wish him well and thank him for his effort.

He did some good things, just didn’t have what it took to go where we want.

No shame. He been in this game a long time and needs an obvious break, if not a new life path altogether.

He had the integrity to step away with some dignity and led us to our best season in over a decade. Wasn’t a success, but not a failure either.

Could have been better, could have been worse.

Wishing Coach Richt the best as he moves on with his life.

OH MY GOD!

An important attribute of a good leader is knowing when it is time to step aside so others can lead.

Tony that's my guy right there

Only if he comes in full pirate garb. I want the sabre, the parrot, and kegs of rum.

Cola,mi@ thanks,
I didn't see it for the tears of joy in my eyes

CMR is a good man and improved the program. But he was just tired and burned out. You could see it on his face and in his mannerisms. Took the gig out of obligation and I respect that. Look to the NFL for the replacement. A up and coming QB coach or coordinator. They say Venables doesn't want to be a HC..let's find out. He's young and seems like a college liver...

NEW BLOG IS UP!

I wonder how this effects recruiting in the next two months? Specifically, Hasselwood, Stevenson, et al?

And I wonder how Jeff Thomas now feels, now that he's transferred to the sunny confines of Illinois.

My wife went to school with Richt and knew him on the social circle...he is a class act...always a Cane brother and christian one. thanks coach

solarcane

No one wants to go with a younger guy?

solarcane

We are so irrelevant Sports Center doesn't even mention Richt retiring

TonyCane

As for the next coach, this fellow springs to mind:

Homer will be a good special teams player in the NFL.

TJL

if they want to stop losing SOFLA recruits hire Mario

TonyCane

First off, a word of thanks to Mark Richt. The program was in a putrid state when he took over. Issues with the offense aside, he improved recruiting and his defensive hires developed the talent that we had and took a no-defense unit and made it top caliber.

Richt got a lot of crap here and elsewhere to the point where he had morphed into a malevolent entity who was motivated only by his own needs. He just proved that to not be the case.

So thank you, Mark Richt.

Too bad were losing "always get caught from behind TH"

AfriCane

I love how the talk romantizes every other coach and team after we loose. Listen to your selves. There’s one thing I will be forever thankful to Richt for; he brought back the culture of our defense. At least we only have one headache. Oh yeah! We also have an IPF.

HillviewCane

Mario Cristobal and Butch won at FIU. Which tells me they will be fine at Miami. Venables would seems legit. However my gut tells me if we went with Kiffen his personality might be fun but it wouldn't be long before the NCAA comes knocking. I could be wrong it's just a feeling.

KYcane

Glad I didn’t toss my
BBB t shirt after they hired CMR

I will renew based on the hire. Remember, this is Blake James we are talking about. I have little faith lol

GD slurped Smark right down the drain. What GD moron!

Hire Butch Davis or the will be no peace. Fire Fake Lames immediately. The bot can rot for all anybody who cares about football is concerned.

Lingard must be healing cam better than homer

Go Canes!!

Dodd:, Filed to CBS Sports: Until further notice, Miami is Mario Cristobal's to turn down. Complicating matters: He absolutely loves Oregon, it's easier to win at Oregon (no Clemson in the league) but Miami is a better job.

thirstybuzzardcane

Ticket sales just doubled

Posted by: solarcane | December 30, 2018 at 01:55 PM

Could you imagine ticket sales if they hire Butch!

ColaCane

Damn really enjoyed TH, and hope he knows what he is doing? Wish you the best Travis "Hitman" Homer!

Not upset at all. We're loaded at RB. Homer knows he will lose more playing time next year

Rivals saying mark stoops might be target?
Anyone confirm rivals saying that

Hey, maybe we can steal Lincoln Riley from OU.

solarcane

Paul Johnson please put your phone down

Ticket sales just doubled

solarcane

New coach bring his own qb I hope

ColaCane

I think we need to go the younger route, which is why I suggested Venables. Young, feisty, in your face type of leader. Thanks CMR for getting us back in people's minds and a VERY EXCITING 2018! It was something having GameDay back in CG!

mi@mic@ne

Organization should be the number one quality. That's why Saban is at the top

Old Skool

It's a pity they can't fire up the air raid sirens in celebration. No could hear the church bells if they all rang.

thirstybuzzardcane

I'll definitely will be renewing now! Everyone should do the same. Thank the university please

MDCane

I hope the AD retain control on hiring and firing of coaches this time.

80's Canes

If he retired there is no buyout.

solarcane

Mike Leach, kiffen a new qb 50 points a game

mi@mic@ne

Butch was the originator of the U dynasty. Coached all the NFL dline greats. Then brought in 17 first rounders.

KYcane

I might renew my season tickets now

thirstybuzzardcane

We need to hire quickly. Shaq and Pickney might stay if it's a home run hire! And plus we need to end recruiting with a bang!

Butch is the only guy that makes sense right now!

mi@mic@ne

Butch can bring in the motha load take us to the top then make a smooth transition to a coach in waiting.

Old Skool

So if we get new coach and Brown leaves, would Thomas come back?

MDCane

Posted by: CaneRock | December 30, 2018 at 01:33 PM

What about Mike Leach and Major Applewhite?

MLAlumni1970

Oh my God. I almost lost control of my bladder! GOOD THING I was sittin' down. We need to take our time and see what is the best fit for the U.
I give Richt credit for seeing the light and doing what is best for the U. I hope he takes his son with him, along with his wasted millions in his "golden parachute".
The U sure pisses away money. Let reality set in, and take our time, to get the best.
I still say get JJ and Butch to guide the search.
God bless the U and all who love her.

NEW BLOG AT 2:00 PM

Richt's announcement per Barry Jackson was that he felt it was in the best interest of football to step down. Now, that he has, what does that do to a buyout?

Honestly, he never should have been hired in the first place. The stage is too great. The expectations for championship football and Mark Richt in the same setnence is an oxymoron. Thanks Blake James.

SOUP

HE GONE!

Old Skool

Next question. does Black James follow Richt? He's seem to be too much of a Richt acolyte

SOUP

WOW!

Old Skool

Now there'll be some excitement in the off-season.
One thing I do think Richt got right is the promotional groundwork he laid with the high school and younger football teams. With the talent base in South Florida, we need to keep getting all the young players in South Florida into a Canes game at least once a season, You want to start building getting them interested in the Canes at a young age, so that when recruiting time comes for some of them, the job is much easier. Obviously if we're winning, it'll be easier still.

Fishu8

CMR has retired !!!!!

Herbieibis

New blog time!

Herbieibis

We don't need Butch. He's almost 70 yrs. Old. Need to get a spread coach. No pro style. We can't get the linemen to run it.
I new he wouldn't make changes and couldn't fire his son.
This hire has to hit the nail on the head and please no cheap hire.
Dam happy days are here again!

Holy Empanadas!

"Dear Hurricane Family:

A few hours ago, I informed UM Director of Athletics Blake James that it is time for me to retire from coaching so I am stepping down as the Head Coach of UM Football. The decision came after a great deal of thought, discussions with my family, and prayer. This was my decision.

The University of Miami has been a part of my life for more than three decades. It shaped me as a young man and provided me with the coaching opportunity of a lifetime. My love for The U is simply great. My true desire is for our football program to return to greatness, and while terribly difficult, I feel that stepping down is in the best interests of the program.

I want to express my sincere appreciation to the entire Hurricane Family for welcoming me back home and for supporting the outstanding young men in our program. I only wish that we could have achieved greater things in return. I also want to thank President Frenk and Blake for their incredible support, as well as the outstanding men and women in UM Athletics. Most importantly, I want to thank the incredible coaches, staff, and their families who gave their all to The U each and every day, and our student-athletes, who wore The U jersey with pride and who worked hard towards their degree.

Katharyn and I will be cheering on the Canes in the years to come and The U will never leave our hearts.

Sincerely,

Mark Richt"

Need to hire an offensive minded coach who can utilize the talent on the roster and recruit to fill in the gaps. Need to hire someone in time to hit the recruiting trail and create some momentum for the recruiting class
