Hire Mark Staten. I love Miami like we all do. I respect coach Martin and all the players. But the facts are the facts. The results are the results. For some reason we can’t get it done despite the support/physical facilities. Change is what we need...period.
Agree, I know and played with Mark as well.
Miami should have hired Staten earlier. He has the connections, the charisma, and the skills to get the job done. Pay him well and give him enough money to hire a solid staff and Miami can be relevant again. Facilities are great now, but that does not always create wins.
Who wants to start the GoFundMe for Chucks buyout?
Or start the WANTED AD for a coach who can actually have a winning season.........
Decision making in close game situations to obtain WINS and winning seasons
Maybe it should also include a WANTED AD for a new AD to fix Football, Basketball,
and Ice Hockey....................
(The wish list is limited by the number of characters I can type in this post and it is too long to list. It is also limited by our AD budget. Other schools overspend. When we should have done this back in the early 2000s, we did not, and now we are trying to catch up.)
There is still hope in that we can:
1) win the MAC EAST (dream)
2) beat ARMY
3) go to bowl game.
FYI: Tim Rose (who many referred to as “he who should not be named) coached at Miami for 7 years and had an overall record of 31-44-3.
Many consider him one of the worst coaches in Miami history.
He won 29 games over his first 5 years
Chuck is 16-36 in 4 seasons and 3 games.
At least with Coach Rose, we beat UC and some non conference heavy weights (LSU).
