For Hurricane football fans, Monday was a day to be excited about, as former University of Houston quarterback D’Eriq King and former Temple University defensive end Quincy Roche announced their intent to transfer to the University of Miami.
With the upcoming season approaching, not only are there some fresh faces in Coral Gables, but there is new hope for the football team. The Hurricanes signed 13 recruits from the class of 2020 last month, all of whom have enrolled for this spring semester.
“The University of Miami football program announced Friday that Dan Enos has been relieved of his duties as offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach,” the program said in a statement.
Following the 14-0 loss to the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs in the Independence Bowl, Miami (6-7, 4-4 ACC) recorded its first losing season since 2014.
On Tuesday, the Atlantic Coast Conference announced that five Miami Hurricane football players received All-ACC honors after the close of the regular season.
Miami did not make any progress this season. They regressed.
“Obviously a very, very dark night,” Miami head coach Manny Diaz said. “One of the lowest points ever in this proud program’s history.”
Former Miami Hurricanes running back Mark Walton was waived by the Miami Dolphins after the second-year player was arrested and charged with aggravated battery early Tuesday morning in Davie, Florida.
