59-15, a National Championship, a national titles game loss (which should have been a win), 3-2 in bowl games, 3 BCS bowls, and a ton of first round draft picks. Now listen guys, I know Coker had a lot of success with Butch's guys but I still smell a bum rap here!

2 players shot. 1 dead.

3 brawls in 1 year. Embarassing the University.

Coker never learned how to make adjustments. He's like a baseball manager for goodness sake, he just watches from the sideline.

Not only was most of that with Butch's players, but look at the team and how it is viewed again. He can't control his guys, which in some way is just as important as performing on the field. His team was bringing VERY bad publicity to the University, and it was really bad timing with all this "athletes getting special treatment" stuff coming back into the media spotlight. He is having an example made of him in some sense. Combined witht he fact that his team is WAY underperforming.

I agree. The football aspect can't be overlooked. But when listing the reasons why he got fired the brawls and shootings are at the top of the list.

According to the article Schiano is top of the list. With Mark Richt, Steve Kragthorpe, and Barry Alaverez also candidates. Randy Shannon an outside shot to be considered for the Miami job.

Randy Shannon to FIU also it looks like a possibility.

I think the football aspect is "the straw that broke the camel's back." If they went 11-1, or 10-2 I don't think he would have been fired. I think it's all the negative publicity PLUS the crappy performance that got him fired. People tend to be more tolerant of screw ups when you are getting them wins. As horrible and disrespectful as that sounds for the player who lost his life in the shooting, it's the truth.

He started off 24-1

Wanna know what happened after that? Most of Butch's players were gone and he couldnt coach up his own.

Take it a step further his next season was 11-2 so he started 35-3

Know what has happened since then?

24-12 that is HORRIBLE for a UM coach

Coker sounded pretty sure he was coming back after the BC game...he told Erin Andrews he was "coming back and going recruiting." Not for Miami you won't !!!

Hmm..a columnist for finheaven, eh? I'll be sure to check out your insightful articles. Really, you hit the nail on the head here! :rolleyes: Get a clue dude. You have ABSOLUTELY no idea what you're talking about.

Miami's a dangerous city, you wanna blame Larry Coker for that? Coker embarrassed the university in no way. He worked his butt off for us, but he didn't get results...that's why he's gone. We let him finish the year because he's a classy guy, but a 6-6 record simply doesn't cut it down here.

Have you ever watched a Hurricane game? He makes NO adjustments at halftime, doesnt coach his players up. In fact he once said he shouldnt have to coach them up because great players have the instinct already.

He was a HORRIBLE coach, but a good coordinator

if miami went 11-1 with the brawl and the pata death, coker would not be fired. in fact, he'd probably win coach of the year. of COURSE his getting fired is a DEFINITE result of the 6-6 record.

Yeah from what I know Bryan's shooting had NOTHING to do with football and he was a good kid.

So unless Coker shot him (which obviously didnt happen) there is no reason to fire him for that.

Not the case in this instance at all.
This program was clearly headed in the wrong direction.
You can't correct the ship without making changes where they are needed.

:shakeno:

Please, spare us will you.
There has been a noticeable downward trend in this program the past few years. There have been rumblings from boosters and former players the past few years as well. This isn't a result of any of the above, it was simply a matter of time.

hey, if you had that kind of record at other schools with another man's recruits, you'd get a 10 year extension (since we all know that Charlie Weiss is the one that brought Quinn,Walker,Shark,Zbikowski, ect to South Bend).

Note:I'm not really taking a shot at ND or Miami, just saying that a program should give the coach atleat 3 years to judge him; since by year 3 his players are on the field.


As for the new coach, why not go after Norm Chow? he wanted the Stanford job, and he's unhappy in Tennessee. He's IMO one of, if not the, best offensive mind in American Football.

I doubt Schiano or Alvarez leave their respective positions now; especially to clean up the mess in Miami. BUT, guys like Chow, mid-major coaches, or some coaches out west would definatly take the job.

There are few jobs in college football that come with as much pressure, spotlight, attention, and glamor as the HC of the Miami Hurricanes. Personally, I'd like to see Coker go to a smaller program with a little less pressure, and some time to get things going. I think he could make a smaller school into something that way, but he wasn't the long-term fit for UM. NC would've been a good job for him.

ahh, so people are still trotting out this false information? I'm not a Hurricane or Buckeye fan, but despite the fact that the flag was late, Miami's corner clearly had his arm locked around the OSU receiver. the call made WAS pass interference, but only a blind man with negative two eyes couldn't have seen the massive hold the Hurricane player put on the OSU player. it was egregious.
