Al Golden fired from head coaching position at Miami

In what is probably the least surprising news of the weekend, the Miami Hurricanes have announced that they have parted ways with head coach Al Golden. This comes just a day after the Hurricanes suffered their worst loss in program history at the hands of the Clemson Tigers.

The loss dropped the Hurricanes to 4-3 on the season and out of contention for the ACC Atlantic division championship. The news was broken by Bleacher Report’s Barrett Sallee via Twitter.

In just four and a half seasons, Golden accumulated a pitiful record of 32-25, a far cry from the Hurricane team that competed for a national championship every year in the early 2000’s. This may come as a nice relief for the Hurricane fans who have been calling for Golden’s job for most of the season.
