ADMINISTRATION In 2007, U.S. President George W. Bush called upon her healthcare expertise to co-chair the Commission on Care for Returning Wounded Warriors, to evaluate how wounded service members transition from active duty to civilian society. In June 2008, President Bush presented her with the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation’s highest civilian award, at a ceremony in the White House. The medal recognizes exceptional meritorious service to individuals who have contributed to national security, world peace, or cultural endeavors.

PRESIDENT DONNA E. SHALALA Donna E. Shalala became the fifth President of the University of Miami on June 1, 2001. President Shalala is an accomplished scholar, teacher, and administrator whose career has been marked by a variety of leadership positions reflecting her interest in young people. While attending college, she played tennis and still plays a competitive game of doubles. She also enjoys golf, skiing, and other outdoor activities. In 1987, President Shalala, a distinguished political scientist, became chancellor of a Big Ten university, the University of Wisconsin-Madison. She led what was then the nation’s largest public research university. In 1992, Business Week magazine named her one of the top five managers in higher education, and in 2005 was named one of “America’s Best Leaders” by U.S. News & World Report and the Center for Public Leadership at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government. President Shalala’s success at Wisconsin was reflected in athletics as well. She hired a new football coach, recruiting Barry Alvarez from Notre Dame. Four years later, Wisconsin won the Big Ten football championship and represented its conference in the Rose Bowl for the first time in 30 years. President Shalala served on the first Knight Commission, a committee to review college athletics, and has served on the board of the National Collegiate Athletic Association Foundation. In May 2008, she was selected as an Independent Director of the U.S. Soccer Federation. In 1993, she was named U.S. Secretary for Health and Human Services (HHS) and served for eight years, becoming the nation’s longest-serving HHS Secretary. In 2000, she led the official U.S. delegation to the Olympics in Sydney, Australia. At the end of her tenure as HHS Secretary, The Washington Post described her as “one of the most successful government managers of modern times.”

As president of the University of Miami, President Shalala presides over one of the most successful college athletic programs in the country. The Hurricanes football program has consistently ranked in the top of the polls. The baseball team has won four College World Series and the football team five national championships. Other Hurricanes sports, from tennis to track, have also earned national recognition. The football program was honored this year by the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) for its latest Academic Progress Report score (APR). It was recognized as having posted a multi-year APR score in the top 10 percent. The Black Coaches Association honored her with its Image of Excellence Award for 2007. As to her commitment to UM athletics, President Shalala said, “College sports are an exciting part of our students’ overall experience while at the University and keeps them connected to their alma mater as enthusiastic alumni. The Hurricanes family reaches beyond the campus, into the community, and around the world. We should be very proud of our student-athletes’ accomplishments both on and off the field, and I invite all loyal ‘Canes to show their support and cheer their team and the U on.” For a sports fan like President Shalala, there is no better place to call home than the University of Miami.

KIRBY HOCUTT DIRECTOR OF ATHLETICS

sports business. A former star linebacker at Kansas State, Hocutt has a total of 19 years experience in intercollegiate athletics, including five as a student-athlete.

Kirby Hocutt is in his third year as the Director of Athletics at the University of Miami. Introduced as UM’s 11th AD on Feb. 8, 2008, Hocutt began his tenure on June 1, 2008. Hocutt, 38, came to Miami after serving as the athletic director at Ohio University since 2005. Prior to that, he spent six years at the University of Oklahoma serving as associate athletic director for external operations and sports administration. In his first two years in Coral Gables, Hocutt has led the development and initiation of a strategic plan to ensure the University of Miami continues to be recognized among the top brands in the nation for athletic, academic and community excellence.

IN THE CLASSROOM With a goal to be the national leader in both Graduation Success Rate (GSR) and Academic Progress Rate (APR) rankings, the student-athletes at the University of Miami are just that – students first and athletes second. Under Hocutt’s direction in 2010, Miami recorded a program-best Graduation Success Rate of 86 percent, while all 18 teams excelled in the NCAA’s Academic Progress Rate Report (APR). Led by the Hurricanes football program – who has posted a multi-year APR score in the top 10 percent – Miami finished sixth in the APR in 2010, and is the only Bowl Championship Subdivision (BCS) team among the 26 schools recognized that finished ranked in the final USA Today Coaches Poll and Associated Press Poll following the 2009 season. In addition, UM’s football program was the corecipient of the American Football Coaches Association’s 2009 Academic Achievement Award, graduating 100 percent of its freshman football student-athlete class of 2002.

ON THE FIELD Since taking the helm of the University of Miami’s Department of Athletics, Hocutt has overseen $26 million in new projects, including the construction of a basketball practice facility, as well as upgrades to Alex Rodriguez Park at Mark Light Field, the Neil Schiff Tennis Center and Cobb Stadium. Coral Gables is truly where the nation’s best student-athletes become champions.

In Hocutt’s three years at Ohio, the school won 11 team championships and four head coaches were recognized as conference Coaches of the Year. In 2006, the football team played in its first bowl game in 38 years. In addition, Hocutt’s leadership led to an increase in fundraising by more than 75 percent, while increasing season ticket sales in football by 112 percent and in men’s basketball by 50 percent. At Oklahoma, Hocutt led the athletics fundraising to an all-time high in annual giving and capital campaigns. From 1998 to 2005, Oklahoma’s annual giving increased from $3.4 million to more than $17 million. That 400 percent increase in annual giving was one of the highest percentage increases in intercollegiate athletics history. Beginning in 1999, Hocutt served in a leadership position in the strategic planning and execution of Oklahoma’s capital campaign, Great Expectations: The Campaign for Sooner Sports. The campaign ended successfully in 2003, with more than $125 million raised. Prior to joining the Oklahoma staff, Hocutt served as the coordinator of licensing at the NCAA. He began his career in sports administration as the assistant director of marketing and promotions at Kansas State University. Hocutt was a fouryear letterman at linebacker at KSU, leading the Big 8 Conference in tackles and earning All-Big 8 Conference team honors as a junior. In 1993, The Sporting News selected him as one of the top 20 underrated players in the nation. Hocutt also served as a team captain his senior season.

Hocutt continues to spearhead the development of a master plan for major facilities improvements, which will see the development of a new football training facility, an enhanced student-athlete academic center and a renovated and expanded athletic training room – all essential steps in taking a legendary program to a new caliber of excellence.

EXCELLENCE DEFINED

Brooks, Diane, Drew and Kirby Hocutt

Over his two-year tenure, Hocutt has expected excellence not only from UM staff and student-athletes, but also himself. In his first year at Miami, two UM head coaches – Paige Yaroshuk-Tews (Women’s Tennis) and Nicole Lantagne Welch (Volleyball) – earned Atlantic Coast Conference Coach of the Year honors, while UM student-athletes have earned 31 All-America honors over his two seasons in Coral Gables. In 2010, Hocutt was recognized with Street & Smith’s SportsBusiness Journal Forty Under 40 Award as one of the most promising young executives in

He earned his bachelor’s degree from Kansas State University in 1995 and his master’s of education degree from the University of Oklahoma in 2001. He and his wife Diane have two sons, 8-year-old Drew and 6-yearold Brooks.

CITY OF MIAMI WHERE THE HEAT IS ON “Welcome to Miami... bienvenidos a Miami.” With 84 miles of Atlantic coastline, yearlong sunshine and a boasted average daily temperature of 75 degrees, it is no wonder in his hit single, Will Smith dubbed Miami “the city where the heat is on.” THE HEAT ON THE COURT Thanks to South Florida’s year-round, sportsfriendly climate, Miami has a lot to offer in outdoor recreational activities. From some of the PGA’s finest golf courses to almost 700 parks, there is something for everyone. With countless opportunities for kayaking, scubadiving, fishing, beach volleyball and rollerblading, there is no excuse for going without a tan. South Florida truly has the perfect weather for sports and is one of only eight metropolitan areas in the United States that can boast of a professional franchise in each of the four major sports. The Major League’s Florida Marlins had everybody “doing the fish” when they won the World Series in 1997 and 2003. The NFL’s Miami Dolphins have thrilled fans for decades at Dolphin Stadium, which hosted the Super Bowl in 1995, 1999 and 2007. Despite the warm weather, South Florida’s own hockey team, the Florida Panthers, keep up on the ice. And for basketball fans, the 2006 NBA Champion Miami Heat keep things hot at the American Airlines Arena. MIAMI IS CALIENTE Truly a melting pot, Miami is home to a variety of cultures, creating a totally unique, vibrant cultural mosaic. With representatives of every Hispanic nation in the world, Spanish serves as a second language to most of Miami’s residents. Little Havana is the heart of Miami’s Cuban community, where churro vendors line the streets, the aroma of high-octane cafe Cubano fills the air and the spirit of friendly competition fills Domino Park. The spirit of the Caribbean is alive in Little Haiti, where many Haitian artists, musicians and entrepreneurs get their start in Miami. The proud focal point of this neighborhood is the Caribbean Market, an open-air replica of Port-au-Prince’s Iron Market, where Creole is the dominant language. SIZZLING THE SILVER SCREEN With tropical weather, a high-quality labor pool, low production costs and direct links to Latin America, Miami has become one of the most important entertainment centers in the world. Dubbed as the Latin-American Hollywood by the New York Times, such block

CITY OF MIAMI busters as Big Trouble—written by Miami Herald columnist Dave Barry, Any Given Sunday, There’s Something About Mary, The Birdcage and Wild Things were all filmed in Miami. A Hollywood favorite off-screen as well, Miami is home to dozens of celebrities and even more consider it a favorite weekend getaway. Glorida and Emilio Estefan’s Star Island estate and Gianni Versace’s Ocean Drive mansion-turned-museum are just a couple examples of Miami’s celebrity appeal. It is not uncommon to spot Sean “Diddy” Combs or Jamie Foxx dancing at a South Beach club or former president Bill Clinton playing golf at the Biltmore Hotel. MIAMI HOT SPOTS For shopping, dancing or just plain people watching, Miami offers several places to see and be seen. With over 800 buildings designed in the ‘30s and ‘40s, South Beach serves as the largest collection of Art Deco architecture in the world. Celebrity-owned restaurants, like Cameron Diaz’s Bambu, night clubs such as Level—based on the format of New York’s Studio 54, and a medley of huge anchor stores and unique boutiques create the flavor of miami’s most famous hot spot. Coconut Grove, just a 10-minute drive from the University of Miami, is another student favorite. Built mainly by West Indian craftsmen brought in from the Bahamas, it still holds onto the Caribbean appeal its name suggests. Attracting writers, artists and non-conformists, this hub of the bohemian arts contributed to Miami’s cultural renaissance. Fast-forward a century and the Grove is still one of Miami’s hottest nightspots, with more than 75 cafes, restaurants and clubs that line the streets. THE WARMTH OF CORAL GABLES, THE “CITY BEAUTIFUL” The University of Miami campus is located in Coral Gables, dubbed the “City Beautiful”. Founded by George Merrick almost a century ago, the Gables is one of Miami’s most beautiful areas. The palm-lined streets are all named after European villages, each one bordered by Old Spanish style homes. Downtown Coral Gables is bustling with the many offices of multi-national corporations, while the city’s central boulevard—Miracle Mile—is home to a wide array of designer boutiques and art galleries. One Gables favorite is the Venetian Pool, a beautiful swimming lagoon carved out of coral, which features cascading waterfalls and underwater caves.

Before the ninth grade, you may become a prospect if a university provides you (or your family or friends) any financial aid or other benefit that is not usually provided to prospective student-athletes. YOU ARE NO LONGER A PROSPECT IF YOU HAVE DONE ANY OF THE FOLLOWING: (1) Officially register and enroll in a minimum full-time program of studies and have attended classes in any four-year collegiate institution’s regular academic year (excluding summer); or (2) Participated in a regular squad practice or competition at a four-year collegiate institution that occurs before the beginning of any term; or (3) Officially register and enrolled and attend classes during the summer prior to initial enrollment and receive institutional athletics aid. HOW DO I KNOW IF I’M BEING RECRUITED? A coach is recruiting you if they try to convince you directly, or through your family, to attend their school and participate in intercollegiate athletics. There are several ways to be recruited: (1) a coach may provide you with an official paid visit to view the campus, (2) a coach may arrange an in-person, off-campus meeting with you (or your family), or (3) a coach or staff member may call you (or your family) on more than one occasion for the purpose of recruitment. Coaches and authorized institutional staff members are the only individuals who may recruit you. Representatives of athletic interests (boosters) may not call, write or make inperson contact with you anywhere for the purpose of recruiting you to a university and participating in athletics. WHEN CAN A COACH CONTACT ME? OFF CAMPUS CONTACT In the sport of basketball, a coach can arrange a face-to-face meeting with you, off the University’s campus, beginning the first day of classes of your senior year. In all other sports, a coach can arrange a face-to-face meeting with you, off the University’s campus, beginning July 1 after your junior year. TELEPHONE CALLS In all sports other than football and basketball, a coach may call a prospect one time per week after July 1 following the completion of the prospect’s junior year in high school. In the sport of football, a coach may initiate one telephone call to a prospect between April 15th and May 31st of the prospect’s junior year. Additional calls are not permitted prior to September 1st of the beginning of the prospect’s senior year in high school. In the sport of men’s basketball, coaches may make one telephone call per month from June 15 of the prospect’s sophomore year through July 31 of the junior year. Beginning August 1 of the senior year a coach may make two telephone calls per week. Only one call per week may be made to a two-year or four-year college prospect. In the sport of women’s basketball, coaches may make one telephone call per month during the months of April (on or after the Thursday after the conclusion of the NCAA Division I Final Four) and May of the prospect’s junior year in high school, one telephone call between June 1 and June 20 and one telephone call between June 21 and June 30 of the prospect’s junior year in high school. Three telephone calls to a prospect are permitted during the month of July, with no more than one call per week. In the following circumstances unlimited calls to a prospect are permitted: (1) during the five days immediately preceding an official visit to the University of Miami, (2) on the initial date for signing the National Letter of Intent and the two days following the signing date, and (3) on the day of a coach’s off-campus contact with a prospect For all sports, coaches may receive telephone calls placed by a prospect at the prospect’s expense at anytime, including before July 1 following the prospect’s junior year in high school.

WHAT IS A CONTACT? A contact is any face-to-face encounter between a prospect or the prospect’s parent(s) or legal guardian and an institutional staff member or athletic representative during which any dialogue occurs in excess of an exchange of a greeting. NOTE: At the Division I level, athletic representatives (boosters) may not contact you for the purpose of recruiting. WHAT CAN A SCHOOL OFFER ME TO ATTEND THEIR UNIVERSITY? You (or your family) may not receive any benefit, inducement or arrangements such as cash, clothing, cars, gifts or loans to encourage you to sign a National Letter of Intent or to attend a NCAA school. A University may offer you a one-year scholarship that covers room and board, tuition and fees, and required course-related books, or any part of these. The institution can recommend that this aid is renewed each year, as is the general practice at the University of Miami but this renewal is not guaranteed. In addition, they can offer you quality academic and medical support, as well as the opportunity to compete for one of the nation’s top programs. WHAT CAN I DO DURING THIS PROCESS? Enjoy your high school years and work hard both in the classroom and in your sport. At the beginning of your junior year you should sign up for the NCAA Clearinghouse. Your high school guidance office can provide you with the information to register. A DIVISION I INSTITUTION MAY PROVIDE A RECRUIT WITH THE FOLLOWING PRINTED MATERIALS: • General correspondence, including letters, U.S. Postal Service postcards and institutional note cards; • Game programs, which may not include posters, and one Student-Athlete Handbook; • NCAA educational information; • Pre-enrollment information subsequent to signing a National Letter of Intent with the university; • Official academic, admissions and student services publications published or videos produced by the institution and available to all students; • Schedule and business cards; • Questionnaires which may be provided prior to your junior year; and Camp brochures which may be provided prior to your junior year.

STRENGTH AND CONDITIONING

ANDREU SWASEY

JIMMY GOINS

Head Strength and Conditioning Coach

Strength and Conditioning Assistant

Now in his 10th season as the Miami Hurricanes’ head strength and conditioning coach, Andreu Swasey has quickly earned the admiration and respect of UM’s players and coaches and has developed a reputation as one of the finest in his field. One of college football’s best known and most innovative strength coaches, Swasey has an extensive background in speed and agility training. Swasey is in charge of the daily conditioning regimen of more than 100 student-athletes in the Hurricanes football program. He also directs Miami’s entire strength and conditioning staff of five strength coaches who supervise all of the conditioning needs of UM’s 18 scholarship sports. Swasey has a unique perspective for a strength and conditioning coach, as he has previous experience as a defensive backs coach and a player. That background makes Swasey the perfect person to address the specific needs of football student-athletes. Swasey has coached in nine bowl games with the Hurricanes including the 2001 national championship at the Rose Bowl. As a football player at Baylor University, he started at cornerback and was a two-year letterman. He was the starting strong safety for the Bears as a senior in 1993 after playing extensively as a reserve in 1992 on a team that defeated Arizona in the Sun Bowl. A defensive back at Baylor University, Swasey’s current stint at UM is his second with the Hurricanes. He returned to UM in 2000 from the University of Houston. He spent the 2000 season as UM’s co-head strength and conditioning coach in charge of speed and agility and was promoted to head of the department in 2001. Swasey was with the Hurricanes in 1997 and 1998 as an assistant strength and conditioning coach before moving on to coach defensive backs at Houston in 1999. Swasey began his coaching career at Copperas Cove (Texas) High School, where he coached defensive backs from 1995 to 1997. Prior to his playing days at Baylor, Swasey was a standout at Fort Scott (Kansas) Junior College, where he earned Second-Team Junior College All-America honors in 1991 and was an all-conference honoree. A native of Miami, Swasey is a graduate of Carol City High School. He received a Bachelor of Arts degree in sociology from Baylor in 1995. He and his wife, Monica, have four children: sons Andrew and Jovon and daughters Ashlinn and Jaela.
