Al Golden makes a ton of sense

    After thinking about the "basketball model" thread, I came back to Golden.

    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.

    Agreed that this makes sense but, you can make a sensible argument for about 15 guys

    I'd be on board. This would be a good hire.

    I'd be fine with him, but I think Tennessee's going after him now that Gruden turned the Vols down...

    I think he would stay at Miami before he would come to CU. He has put in his time building a program already.

    He coaches east of the Mississippi so I'd certainly be on board.

    No - you're supposed to only like the ones south of the Mason-Dixon line - it's a dirty southern soul you have - not an eastern one.

    And Miami is a big dumpster fire right now. No fan support, no facilities, sanctions, etc.

    Not sure, but Golden would be a great hire. Throw money at him.

    Would feel much better about Golden than Jones. I'd even chip in to get him a nice collection of black and gold neck ties to wear on gamedays.

    Interesting backstory. So the U was in the process of interviewing/hiring Golden, they knew about the investigation, but didn't tell him? I'm sure he loved that, nothing like your new employer building some solid trust right out of the gate!

    He might like the situation at CU:
    1. Make same or better $
    2. Get out of the hyper-competitive southeast
    3. No-lose situation, nowhere to go but up

    4. Sweat less in Boulder.


    Every time I see that guy on the Miami sideline he soaked.

    I had not thought about this, but doesn't the U run the pro style? Take him down a few pegs.

    Talked with Al personally a couple times during his stint at UVA. Would be a dream hire and get us back to where we need to be. Great guy and would make a huge splash in Boulder. It's no secret he's not the happiest at Miami.

    His look is sharp, but not functional or practical for Miami. Kind of seems silly.

    If he leaves, it'll be for BC...I'm guessing.

    His resume shows he's a defensive guy (DC for 4-5 years before his HC jobs), so I don't know that he'd be tied to a specific offense.
