ESPN’s Paul Finebaum didn’t mince words Tuesday, as he said the vacant Miami position is a “terrible job.” This comes a few days after the university fire embattled ex-coach Al Golden.

If you watch the above clip, you’ll obviously see Finebaum pull no punches. He said the Hurricanes’ fanbase is “delusional”, the school is “bankrupt” and absolutely not heading in the right direction. Finebaum said he would find it hard to believe that any coach would be attracted to the job given all the recent struggles. He also said Golden originally was a good hire.
Despite what Finebaum says, the Miami job still carries a lot of cache in a lot of circles. Alum Ed Reed has already said he would listen if Miami contacted him. At the moment the team is currently being coached by interim head coach Larry Scott.
The Hurricanes (4-3, 1-2) are set to play No. 22 Duke on the road this Saturday.
