CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) -- Al Golden has taken the Miami
Hurricanes' coaching job.
Golden accepted an offer to replace Randy Shannon, the school
announced Sunday night. Shannon was fired Nov. 27 after the
Hurricanes completed a 7-5 regular season.
The 41-year-old Golden has led a turnaround at once-moribund
Temple, winning 17 games in the past two seasons.
Athletic director Kirby Hocutt had a list of about 10 names of
those under consideration during the process, and Golden became the
favorite after interviewing for the job in New York early last
Golden's work at Temple has been nothing short of remarkable.
Temple's departing class of current seniors became the program's
first in nearly 30 years to leave with a winning record.
