With Miami firing Al Golden over the weekend after its dreadful 58-0 beatdown at the hands of the Clemson Tigers, a lot of people have chimed in about who should coach the team next and how they should go about rebuilding the program. Well, add former-Hurricane sensation Ed Reed into the mix.

From ex-standout Warren Sapp voicing his displeasure to Charlie Strong being mentioned, the “U” has had its fair share of pundits claim how it should repair its image, and Reed is the latest to offer up his advice. Reed told Rich Eisen, that if asked, he would coach the team.
“I would entertain it,” Reed told Eisen (h/t Alexander Pyles of The Baltimore Sun). “I’m in a different place in my life right now.”
Reed is an alum that personifies Miami. He is one of the greatest safeties to ever play the game and just retired this year after playing 12 seasons in the NFL. Reed definitely has a strong affinity to his alma mater. He would like the next coach to be familiar with Miami’s rich football culture and history. Although, to him, that is not a prerequisite.
“It makes sense to have somebody around there that knows the system, knows the tradition and knows how we kind of do things,” he said (per The Baltimore Sun).
Larry Scott is currently the interim coach for the Hurricanes and he’ll look to right the ship as Miami (4-3, 1-2) gets set to face No. 22 Duke on the road this Saturday.
