Rumor: Doug Nussmeier top candidate to be Miami Hurricanes new OC

Photo by Jamie Gilliam/Icon Sportswire via The former Fresno State, Washington, Alabama, Michigan, and Florida OC has some smoke that he’s heading to Coral Gables. That would be an all-time disaster of a hire by Mario Cristobal. According to The Football Scoop, Doug Nussmeier is a leading target to land the Miami Hurricanes offensive coordinator job in 2023. No, not in 2013, yes, in 2023. Over the past five seasons, Nussmeier has been an assistant coach with the Dallas Cowboys.

Offensive philosophy: run ‘em up or fill ‘em in

Offensive philosophy: run ‘em up or fill ‘em in

Photo by Doug Murray/Icon Sportswire via Mario Cristobal came to Coral Gables to fill ‘em in, but he was forced to (and failed) at running running ‘em up, too. So which offensive philosophy works best? In the 2022 college football season there were two kinds of teams- teams that could run ‘em up, and teams that could fill ‘em in. The College Football Playoff National Champion Georgia Bulldogs were the lone squad that could truly do both. UGA finished the ‘22 season 14th in rushing, 13th in passing, and 4th in points per play (PPP). The Dawgs were 1st...

Photo by Focus on Sport/ Mario Cristobal has his infamous loafers, but did you know that Howard Schnellenberger also had a famous pair of his own? It’s a slow week in Miami Hurricanes news, so I thought why not go down a weird path and discuss the schedule, Schnelly’s famous pair of loafers, and Jimmy Johnson’s hiring of three different defensive coordinators while at Miami.

The Canes will look to start turning things around after struggling to a 5-7 season in 2022. There’s still plenty of talent on the roster, and a LOT of new faces to help things get going in a positive direction. The key, obviously, will be improvement on offense, and curtailing the myriad explosive plays allowed on defense. But that should be easy to do....right? The full...

Miami Hurricanes 2022 position recap: Running Back

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports The RB room took significant hits all season. What a wild and unfortunate season 2022 was for the Running Back room at the University of Miami.

Speaking on Don Chaney, coach Cristobal said “He suffered an injury. There’s no update on it. Hopefully, he’ll be better soon.” But he wasn't,...

Opinion: Marcus Arroyo is going to be the next O.C. of the Miami Hurricanes

Photo by Ethan Miller/ Marcus Arroyo has been heavily courted by NFL teams as a QB coach, but his familiarity with Cristobal will more than likely bring him to Coral Gables, FL to call plays for the Hurricanes. Miami Hurricanes head football coach Mario Cristobal has fired offensive coordinator and wide receivers coach Josh Gattis. After a 5-7 season that saw Miami’s SP+ rating plummet 77th in FBS- the ‘Canes head man has gone in another direction. Gattis came to Miami from Michigan with his Broyles Award for the nation’s top assistant in hand. Before the Gattis...

He won the Broyles award as the Nation’s Best Assistant Coach in 2021 at Michigan. So, there was a history of success, and plenty of expectations for Gattis’s move to Miami. Unfortunately for him and Miami both, things just didn’t work out....

You can read that by clicking the link below: While it was easy to see the state of affair with the numbers I included in that piece, the main point of feedback was consistent: it’s too soon to worry...
