Miami Reportedly Hires Temple Football Coach Al Golden

Multiple sources are reporting that Temple head football coach Al Golden has accepted the vacant Miami Hurricanes coaching job. Golden reportedly interviewed for the job twice in recent weeks after “The U” fired head coach Randy Shannon.

Temple AD Bill Bradshaw wouldn’t confirm or deny that Golden was gone to Philly.com, which pretty much tells you all you need to know.

We’ve been very consistent about not commenting, neither confirming nor denying anything that comes up like this. I’ve told many other guys (in the media) that over the last 2 days. I can’t comment on that. I wish I could.

“It’s natural for Al Golden to be coveted when you consider what he’s done for Temple football. He’s built it to last. There’s annual interest (from other schools) in coach Golden. It’s something we had anticipated 5 years ago.”
