OTH PODCAST: OTH Podcast: Manny Diaz, The Miracle In Miami, State Of The Recruiting Class - FREE
Hurricanes coach Manny Diaz has reportedly rounded out his coaching staff and one of his latest additions will be a coach with deep ties to some of South Florida's most potent high school football programs. According to multiple reports, Louisville director of recruiting Stephen Field is expected to be named Miami's new tights ends coach, while 247Sports.com reported Air Force receivers coach Taylor Stubblefield is expected to take the same position with the Hurricanes.
Steve Field is a Miami alum and a native of Palm Beach. In addition to serving as the Director of Recruiting at Oregon, Field also spent the 2017 season as the Director of High School Relations and NFL Liasion at Louisville. This would be Field's second stint with the Miami football program.
The Canes defense was one of the best units in the nation because of their ability to pull down ballcarriers behind the line of scrimmage, force turnovers, and play disciplined football. While there are plenty of players that represent that philosophy on this defense like Jaquan Johnson, Shaquille Quarterman and Michael Pinckney, one player truly transformed himself to be a flagbearer of Manny Diaz's defense: Romeo Finley.
AP Photo/Alan Diaz Since being hired as the head coach of the Miami Hurricanes, Manny Diaz has shown he is pretty good at using Twitter. With cryptic GIFs and photos, he regularly drops clues for things happening in the near future.
The Miami Hurricanes hired Eric Hickson as their running backs coach and Butch Barry as their offensive line coach Saturday. Neither have much of a track record as recruiters in small sample sizes.
Manny Diaz has been Miami's head coach for less than a month, but he has promptly succeeded in making The U a place that talented players want to come to. Late-December was an unpredictable and wild period of time for the Hurricane program.
