The news hit me like a punch to the gut Sunday morning. What? Randy Shannon gone as UM head football coach?
Sadness. Disappointment. Dissolusionment. Remorse.
I pulled hard for Randy Shannon. Miami has turned its program around from being a bunch of lawless thugs to being an academic leader in college athletic circles. His personal story and his rise to head coach is legendary and moving.
Randy Shannon IS Miami football. He was a player, assistant, and coach. He is an African American. He helped wright the ship.
In the end he didn’t win enough games. Simple as that.
I don’t like it. It still stings.
I wish it would have worked out.
I wish Randy Shannon was still Miami’s coach.
