I unveiled my Top 5 candidates for the University of Miami coaching job today, live on The Andy Slater Show on 940 AM WINZ and iHeartRadio.
If you didn't get to hear it, I have the list for you below.
My Top 5 candidates:
#5 Charlie Strong (Texas HC) - Charlie's career was made off of South Florida kids as a defensive coordinator at Florida and head coach at Louisville. He had more than 35 kids from South Florida on his roster and would be a perfect fit.
#4 Mark Stoops (Kentucky HC) - Mark is a former UM coach with a great defensive mind. He loves South Florida and will definitely bring the swagger back.
#3 Dana Holgorsen (West Virginia HC) - Dana currently has two coaches on his staff from South Florida. When it comes to talent, he covers South Florida like no other.
#2 Mario Cristobal (Alabama OL coach) - Mario would bring the same passion and energy that Dan Campbell brought to the Miami Dolphins this season. He would have the same exact coaching style.
#1 Tim Brewster (FSU TE coach, recruiting coordinator) - Tim has experience as a head coach in Minnesota. He is the #1 recruiter in South Florida and the country for two straight years. Tim also has the best QB committed to him right now -- Malik Henry.
