Report: Ex-Miami players pushing for Rex Ryan to coach Hurricanes

Rex Ryan

Some former Miami Hurricane players want a big but risky name as the school’s next coach.

According to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald, some former players are privately pushing the school to reach out to former New York Jets coach Rex Ryan to replace the retiring Mark Richt. Jackson adds that Ryan would be interested in the opportunity if it is presented to him.

The big question is whether Miami would be interested. They’ve had this coaching search thrust upon them out of the blue, so they’re still trying to figure out which direction they intend to go in. That said, Ryan certainly comes with a reputation, though his last college experience came in 1999 as Kansas State’s defensive coordinator.

Ryan has hinted at a return to coaching, and this would be quite the opportunity for him. For Miami, though, it might be too big a risk to take.
