Miami AD looking at end-of-year evaluation for Al Golden

The Miami Hurricanes have been struggling all year long. Despite nearly upsetting the rival Florida State Seminoles Saturday night, the team hasn’t looked good in 2015.

A lot of fans have been calling for head coach Al Golden’s head. In his fifth season, Golden hasn’t posted better than a 9-4 record and has an 0-2 record in bowl games.

This has caused much of the administration to consider going in another direction for their next head coach. According to College Football Talk, however, Miami athletic director Blake James isn’t willing to make a mid-season change.

“As I said from the very start, we’ll look at everything at the end of the year and make an evaluation,” James said according to the Miami Herald. “Again, I think the thing you have to look at is if you lose tonight how many games do you have left? [What if] you win all the rest of your games? That’s why you always have to evaluate at the end of the year.”

The Hurricanes were 3-0 to start the year, but in two of their three wins they have struggled mightily. They have also lost two straight games and it was last Thursday’s loss to Cincinnati that really turned the heat up on Golden’s seat.

The Hurricanes’ chances at the ACC may be out the window, but a 10-win season is probably the only thing that can save Golden’s job.
