1. Current BCS head coach 2. Turn around record while at Temple 3. High character guy When Miami restructured and extended Golden's contract last year (2011) following Miami's self-imposed bowl ban for that post-season, Golden was assured by the university that would be the extent of the self-imposed penalties. I haven't seen the new contract, but supposedly there is a huge buyout since it runs through 2019. I think it's capped at $2 million per year in compensation. Allegedly, the extension included language that if Miami self-imposed more penalties or the NCAA hammer dropped, Golden could leave for another job with the buyout waived. November 19, 2012: Miami self-imposes bowl ban for 2012 November 21, 2012: NCAA has sent a letter to former Cane players that they either talk or Shapiro's claims will be assumed true I'm hoping that all of the leaks and misdirection is to throw us off the scent and CU is really targeting Golden while waiting to see if he can get out of his contract.
