Miami AD on Golden: 'I believe he will be our coach'
Miami athletic director Blake James remains confident Al Golden will stay on as the Hurricanes' head coach.
Plenty of observers in Happy Valley and elsewhere expect Al Golden to be the next head coach at Penn State, where the current Miami coach is reportedly interviewing Saturday.
But Hurricanes athletic director Blake James isn't one of those people, texting the South Florida Sun-Sentinel Saturday that he remains confident Golden will stay on as Miami 's coach for the forseeable future.
"Al and I are in regular communication," James wrote. "He is our football coach and I believe he will be our coach going forward."
Golden has been one of the hottest names for the Nittany Lions job since the moment Bill O'Brien left it for the Houston Texans, along with Vanderbilt's James Franklin and the Tennessee Titans' Mike Munchak. A Penn State alumnus and former head coach at Temple, Golden has guided the Hurricanes to a 22-15 record despite NCAA sanctions.
Golden was reportedly scheduled to interview with the Nittany Lions Friday before inclement weather delayed the meeting.
Munchak, like Golden a former Nittany Lion player, was fired Sunday as the Titans' head coach.
