Randy Shannon Fired As Miami Coach

Shortly after CaneSports reported Randy Shannon had been fired as head coach of the Miami Hurricanes, confirmation is coming from all angles. Associated Press reporter Tim Reynolds tweeted that Shannon has indeed been fired and that it was athletic director Kirby Hocutt's decision. According to Reynolds, the rumors of a summit between Donna Shalala and advisers close to the program never happened.

After multiple outlets confirmed the news, citing sources close to the athletic department, Miami confirmed the news to reporters itself, making Shannon's firing official. Pete Thamel, of the New York Times. passed along the word out of Coral Gables on Twitter.

And so ends the Shannon tenure in Miami. In four years, Shannon lead the Hurricanes to a 28-22 record and two both appearances, losses in both the Emerald Bowl and Champs Sports Bowl. The Hurricanes are bowl eligible this year, at 7-5, and are currently second in the ACC's Coastal Division. There's been no word on possible replacements or who will coach Miami's Bowl game.
