Miami (Yes that Miami) Hires Golden as Head Coach

The University of Miami has announced that they have hired Al Golden to replace the fired Randy Shannon as the head coach of the football team. Golden is reportedly signing a four-year contract worth $8 million. Golden will have the task of turning around a once proud and elite program that has fallen on mediocre times in recent years. Needless to say, the rebuilding job at Miami should be much easier than the job of rebuilding Temple. This year's senior class is the first class to graduate from Temple with a winning record in 30 years. Miami can practically fill a recruiting class with players from the Miami area alone, and while the facilities are mediocre, they still are a step up from Temple's.

It was only a matter of time before Temple lost Coach Golden to a higher profile team in a BCS conference, it comes as a surprise to me that he left for Miami. I thought that he might stay at Temple until the Penn State job finally opens when Joe Paterno dies or retires. Who do you think will be likely candidates for the job? I won't pretend to know anything about who might be interested in coaching Temple, although I would assume that Temple would be looking for an assistant coach who has experience in coaching on the East Coach. Temple shouldn't have too much trouble finding someone to fill the position, Temple is still a program on the rise and there is the possibility that they might be invited to join the Big East at some time in the future.
