Report: Miami Hurricanes had immaturity, partying issues

Manny Diaz Miami

There is a very good reason why the Miami Hurricanes slipped to a 6-7 record this season and suffered an embarrassing bowl loss.

A report from The Miami Herald’s Barry Jackson published on Sunday detailed significant issues within Miami’s culture, including allegations that the Hurricanes had immaturity issues. The immaturity issues included players supposedly being more focused on partying than playing, with some breaking curfew before the 14-0 bowl loss to Louisiana Tech.

Jackson’s report says players took advantage of Miami’s drug policy, which does not call for suspensions for first violations.

Freshman quarterback Jarren Williams was one of the players accused of immaturity. He was said to have even skipped a practice. Williams’ immaturity is reportedly one of the reasons the program wouldn’t mind if he transferred.

Miami took several steps backwards in Manny Diaz’s first season. The coach is reportedly considering a harsher discipline policy moving forward.
