It seems as though fans have a big influence on how gets hired, and fired, into head coaching positions nowadays. For weeks, Miami Hurricane fans were calling for the school to fire head coach Al Golden and they got their wish on Sunday.
Now, some fans are expressing their opinions on who they would love to see as the next head coach of the Hurricanes. According to College Spun, one fan really wants to see former head coach Butch Davis return to Coral Gables.
So much so that the fan sent a unique message in the form of cupcakes to the Miami athletic department.
Davis had some pretty good success at Miami from 1995-2000, winning four bowl games and three Big East championships. However, fans must remember that Davis was the head coach at Miami and North Carolina when both schools were slapped with NCAA violations, so it could be a win-lose type of situation right now.
Fans aren’t looking at the violations as big deal since they did happen almost twenty years ago. They want to win and Davis may be their best best to do so right now.
