I remember when he started and the extravagant optimism that came with him. His backstory was awesome but the fans and the alums wanted an immediate return to greatness.

It is conceivably possible that The U could have handled this worse ...... but i'll be damned if I know how.

I don't see how this could have been handled better. Diaz and James produced nothing. ZERO. They lost to FIU. No conference championship in the ACC. This is not what us Cane fans had in mind.

They got the best person available with great local ties, that will bolster recruiting. Looks like they have stirred up some big money connections. Thats what it's about in college football now a days.


from ESPN:

2021 coach: Manny Diaz (fired on Dec. 6)
Replacement: Mario Cristobal, previously Oregon head coach
Grade: A-

The U got its man. Miami's mechanism might have been messy and brash, but the program ended up with the coach it has coveted to restore the glory. The hiring of Cristobal, combined with long-overdue financial commitments to upgrade the program, gives Miami a chance to become nationally relevant again. Cristobal, 51, is not only a connection to Miami's elite past who will galvanize former players and fans, he also brings in two Pac-12 championships at Oregon and a recruiting profile that places him among the nation's very best head coaches. Few head coaches are as tenacious as Cristobal when it comes to recruiting. He undoubtedly will make an immediate impact with Miami-area recruits, and enhance some of the progress Diaz made on the trail. No top-level FBS coach is more connected to the city and to the university.

So why isn't this a full-on A-grade? Cristobal's in-game coaching remains a concern, and the end to his Oregon tenure -- two noncompetitive losses to Utah in three games -- can't be ignored. He will put together great rosters at Miami. But will he have the game-day chops to get Miami to the CFP and ultimately to its first national title since 2001? There's enough evidence from his time at Oregon to be a bit leery of his Saturday skills. His staff hires will be important, and he has a good track record of bringing in quality assistants.

A notoriously frugal university when it comes to athletics has gone from thrifty to extravagant. Cristobal reportedly signed a 10-year, $80-million contract. In addition, Miami is paying Cristobal's $9 million buyout and the remaining two years of Diaz's contract, about $8 million.

Add on tax bills of around $11 million as reported by USA Today and the Hurricanes suddenly are acting like they are Alabama or Clemson or Texas A&M. Or Jeff Bezos.

Cristobal was great at FIU at the time but then got fired (forget why). It's a good hire for Miami.

Miami has hired Clemson athletic director Dan Radakovich to the same position, according to multiple reports. The hire of Radakovich, 63, is the latest in a series of big swings aimed at rebuilding Miami's athletic department back to prominence.

I always wonder who these lawyers are they make these contracts for the coaches. That's what I want to do.
