Report: Miami President Calls Late-Night Meeting On Randy Shannon's Future

It appears that Randy Shannon could be headed out at Miami after a 7-5 season in Coral Gables this year. UM President Donna Shalala is reportedly huddling with advisers tonight to determine what to do about Shannon, who has grown unpopular with fans four seasons after replacing Larry Coker.

Shalala had been one of Shannon's staunchest supporters before Saturday's three-point loss to South Florida, and Herald beat reporter Manny Navarro tweeted that she was originally ready to give Shannon another year before that defeat.

But since then, Shalala has gathered her closest advisors for an emergency meeting about Shannon. Kirby Hocutt is there.less than a minute ago via web

 

Offensive coordinator Mark Whipple is the likely interim coach if Miami is to make a change.

Of course, that might still be in doubt: ESPN's Bruce Feldman tweets that reports of a Shalala summit tonight are "false." And Feldman is one of the college football world's more reliable sources.

In any case, be sure to keep an eye on this stream and on our Miami blog, The 7th Floor, for more on this developing story.
