Maisel: Muschamp Was Interested In Miami

Ivan Maisel of ESPN.com has an interesting nugget on his blog today and we thought we’d bring it to your attention here:


“The way I hear it, the board of trustees at Miami told athletic director Kirby Hocutt that he had to replace Randy Shannon with someone with head coaching experience.  Hocutt got a feeler from an associate of Will Muschamp, saying the Texas defensive coordinator wanted to know more about the Miami job.  Muschamp couldn’t even get a phone call from Hocutt.  A couple of days later, Urban Meyer resigned at Florida.  For Hocutt’s sake, Al Golden better win more than Muschamp.”


If this story is true — and you have to think it leaked out from someone close to Hocutt — it’s the board of trustees who should be praying for Golden’s success.  Sure, the AD will take the blame for a bad hire, but it sounds as if Hocutt’s hands were tied.

Very interesting indeed.
