It’s All About the U Academics • Life • Athletics We are the Miami Hurricanes. With that honor and privilege comes a commitment to excellence—on the field, in the classroom, in every endeavor. “It’s All About the U” is a Department of Athletics campaign to affirm the core values of what it means to be a ’Cane. It’s more than a code of conduct; it’s a way of life for students, coaches, alumni, faculty and fans. It’s a pledge to surpass what’s expected of us and deliver our utmost with passion and pride. Hurricane spirit is a mighty force, but our strength is not limited to athletic prowess. University of Miami student-athletes strike a balance between training the body for peak performance and sharpening the intellect for future success. Beyond their athletic and academic vigor, Miami Hurricanes operate with integrity. “It’s All About the U” emphasizes doing the right thing, even when no one is watching. It means being a role model in the community and someone who is always eager to help those in need. When our fans raise their hands thumb-to-thumb, forming a “U,” they are saluting a winning athletic tradition as well as showcasing their pride in one of the nation’s finest institutions of higher education. Fans who know “It’s All About the U” have profound respect for the game, the players, the officials and most of all, themselves. We invite you to explore the many ways in which the Miami Hurricanes excel in academics, life, and athletics.

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. Recognizing that first-rate facilities are a key part of achieving success on the field, last year Hurricanes football embarked in an exciting new chapter with the move to Land Shark Stadium. This state-of-the-art complex offers both players and fans world-class amenities that are unparalleled in college sports. 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 leader 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. In 2001, the baseball team won its fourth College World Series and the football team won its fifth national championship. In 2003, the men and women’s basketball teams began playing in a new, on-campus facility, the BankUnited Center. Other Hurricanes sports, from tennis to track, have also earned national recognition. UM celebrated the opening of the newly renovated Mark Light Stadium at Alex Rodriguez Park and a new basketball training and practice complex in 2009. 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 a vital part of our students’ experience while at the University. They also help build community and instill a great sense of pride in our athletes and their accomplishments. The young men and women who play Hurricanes sports are devoted to their game both on a personal and team level, and it shows in their inspired performances time after time. Now it’s up to the fans to show their support and cheer them on to many more victories.” For a sports fan like President Shalala, there is no better place to call home than the University of Miami.

Hocutt, 37, 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 year in Coral Gables, Hocutt established a master plan for major facilities improvements in addition to initiating the development of a strategic plan for the University of Miami athletic department. He oversaw a number of facility improvements in his initial year, 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. For the first time in nine years, a new Ring of Honor class was inducted under Hocutt’s direction, as Edgerrin James, Jim Kelly, Cortez Kennedy, Jim Otto and Gino Torretta were added to the prestigious class of UM football greats. Two UM head coaches – Paige Yaroshuk-Tews (Women’s Tennis) and Nicole Lantagne Welch (Volleyball) – earned Atlantic Coast Conference Coach of the Year honors in Hocutt’s first year at Miami, while UM student-athletes earned 15 All-America honors during the 2008-09 season. The women’s tennis team also became the first women’s program at UM to win an ACC title, claiming the regular season championship after going 25-4 overall and 10-1 in league play. A former star linebacker at Kansas State, Hocutt has a total of 18 years experience in intercollegiate athletics, including five as a student-athlete. At Ohio, Hocutt significantly reorganized the athletic department’s annual giving program. His leadership led to an increase in fundraising by more than 75 percent - including the securing of the second-largest major gift in school athletics history. He also increased season ticket sales in football by 112 percent and in men’s basketball by 50 percent. In his 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.

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 for a $100 million capital campaign. The $120 million campaign was unique in that it focused on facility construction or improvements for each of Oklahoma’s 20 sports. Prior to joining the Oklahoma staff, Hocutt served as the assistant director of licensing at the NCAA. In that position, he worked with corporate partners and licensees to create new revenue producing initiatives to support and promote all 81 NCAA championships. He began his career in sports administration as the assistant director of marketing and promotions at Kansas State University. While at Kansas State, he implemented revenue-producing activities for the athletics department, including corporate partner sponsorships and ticket sales. Hocutt was a four-year 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. Two of Hocutt’s coaches at Kansas State were Bob Stoops, head football coach at Oklahoma and Jim Leavitt, the head football coach at USF. A member of the Orange Bowl Committee, Hocutt was also named to the Miami-Dade Sports Commission Board of Directors on Oct. 1, 2008.

At Oklahoma, Hocutt was the primary administrator for football and the sport supervisor for baseball, men’s and women’s golf, and men’s and women’s tennis.

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.

THIS IS MIAMI FOOTBALL

National Champions Miami is one of just five Division I Bowl Subdivision football programs to win at least five national titles (1983, 1987, 1989, 1991 & 2001). THE 1983 HURRICANES

Miami’s five national championship trophies.

Former UM head coach Howard Schnellenberger and Nebraska head coach Tom Osborne shake hands before the 1983 Orange Bowl Classic.

It was called the miracle in Miami. After discussions of dropping the program arose, the 1983 Miami football team pushed all that talk aside and posted an impressive 11-1 record on its way to stunning top-ranked Nebraska, 31-30, in the 1984 Orange Bowl Classic on New Year’s Day. Miami knocked off four teams ranked in the top 15 that season. It was the first time that a national title team didn’t have a single player make an All-America first team. The 1983 Hurricanes were also only the second national title team to gain more passing yards than rushing yards as quarterback Bernie Kosar threw for 2,329 yards, completed 61.5 percent and tossed 15 touchdown passes.

THE 1987 HURRICANES What was supposed to be a rebuilding year for Miami ended in the program’s second national title in a five-year span and first undefeated season in school history. Miami dominated from start to finish defeating six schools ranked in the top 20 capping off the season with a 20-14 win over top-ranked Oklahoma in the Orange Bowl Classic. One of the season highlights came in the third game of 1987 when UM trailed No. 4 Florida State, 19-3, late in the third quarter. Miami then scored three lightning-quick touchdowns: a 49-yard bomb from Steve Walsh to Melvin Bratton, a 26-yarder from Walsh to Michael Irvin followed by a two-point conversion tying the game, then a 73-yard strike from Walsh to Irvin with 2:22 left. Miami then stopped an FSU two-point conversion to hold on for a 26-25 victory. UM went on to defeat No. 10 Notre Dame and No. 8 South Carolina before winning the title on its home field against the Sooners.

THE 1989 HURRICANES Some referred to it as a season of two Ericksons and a tenacious “Defense.” UM head coach Dennis Erickson took over following the departure of Jimmy Johnson and in his first season led Miami to its third national title in seven seasons. Miami switched to a one-back offense, but remained in its trademark 4-3 defense which finished the season holding opponents to a 9.3 points per game. The Hurricanes didn’t allow a touchdown for a 10-quarter stretch during the regular season and held six opponents without a touchdown. New quarterback Craig Erickson threw for 2,007 yards and 15 touchdowns despite missing three games. UM trounced

National Champions defending national champion and top-ranked Notre Dame, 27-10, ending the Irish’s 23-game win streak to make the seventh season in a row in which UM had defeated a No. 1 ranked team. That win sent Miami to the Sugar Bowl, where it defeated No. 7 Alabama, 33-25. Topranked Colorado lost its bowl game to Notre Dame, which in turn gave Miami its third national title.

THE 1991 HURRICANES It only took head coach Dennis Erickson two years after his first national title to win another one. Quarterback Gino Torretta, a group of skill players nicknamed “The Ruthless Posse” and a linebacker corps that ranked among the greatest ever assembled, led the Hurricanes to their fourth national title. UM’s second perfect season (12-0) ended with a shutout victory over No. 11 Nebraska, 22-0, in the Orange Bowl Classic. A combustible offense, a rock-solid defense and the nation’s best special teams, which by 1991 were all traits synonymous with Miami football, led UM to that national title. The Hurricanes defeated a team ranked No. 1 for the eighth time in nine years when rival Florida State went down, 17-16, in Tallahassee in what became known as “Wide Right I.” Miami won the national title in the Associated Press rankings, but the Hurricanes shared overall national honors with Rose Bowl champion Washington, which captured the coaches’ poll.

THE 2001 HURRICANES

QB Craig Erickson led Miami to a 33-25 win over Alabama in the Sugar Bowl as UM earned its third national title in 1989.

Miami capped off a perfect 12-0 season in 1987 for UM’s second national title.

Probably the program’s most rewarding title came in 2001, when Miami captured national title No. 5. A veteran senior class that endured the shame of a losing season in 1997 and had rebuilt the program led this team. It was argued that this group of the Hurricanes were the best ever. They beat opponents by the largest average margin in UM history (33.2 points per game), produced the biggest defeats over any pair of ranked teams in history by defeating No. 14 Syracuse and No. 12 Washington by a combined, 124-7, set a new UM record for scoring and featured a defense that scored eight touchdowns and led the nation in pass defense, scoring defense and turnover margin. Seven Hurricanes were named to at least one All-America team’s first unit while six players were finalists for national awards, led by Outland Trophy winner Bryant McKinnie at offensive tackle and Maxwell Award winning quarterback Ken Dorsey. It ended with UM’s third undefeated season (12-0) as UM routed No. 4 Nebraska, 37-14, to win the Rose Bowl.

Miami shut out Nebraska, 22-0, on its way to a perfect 12-0 record and the 1991 title.

Football Facilities The nation’s best student-athletes meet, practice and train in the Hecht Athletic Center. The Miami football complex features state-of-theart meeting and planning rooms, including three large team meeting rooms and eight position group meeting rooms. These rooms are fully equipped with the latest video scouting technology, enabling Hurricane football players to prepare in the best setting available. The football practice fields are part of the Hecht Athletic Center. The Greentree Practice Fields consist of three full length natural grass fields and are lighted to allow for evening practices. Greentree underwent a $2 million renovation in 1998. In 2007, the practice fields were selected College Football Field of the Year by SportsTurf Managers Association. The Hecht Athletic Center underwent an $8 million expansion in 2001, a project that also added a players lounge and an outdoor terrace overlooking Greentree Practice Fields; an expansion to the football equipment room; a new office suite for the head coach; locker rooms for women’s track, soccer and men’s track; and an Olympic sports equipment room.

The Edgerrin James Team Meeting Room underwent renovations at the end of last season.

The University of Miami began The Sprint for Hurricane Athletics campaign in 2007 with a goal of raising more than $70 million to improve and construct new athletic facilities, grow the Hurricane Club Student-Athlete Scholarship Fund and strengthen the Athletic Department endowment. Included in the campaign is a $25 million goal to improve the football facilities, renovate the training room and build a new academic building. The first stage of construction and renovation on the football offices in the Hecht Athletic Center has been completed. Coaches’ offices, conference rooms and team meeting rooms were re-designed, and new offices for the Football Operations and Football Relations departments were also built and furnished. The next renovation project will include the football locker room and a $5 million upgrade to the training room. One of the most important facility projects to be undertaken by the Athletic Department is the construction of a four-story Academic Building, including a renovated space for the Tom Kearns Hall of Fame. The new building will be a space for student-athletes to pursue their academic dreams and will house computer laboratories, a math and writing center, private study cubicles, study meeting rooms and office space for the academic staff. The generosity of former football student-athletes and friends of the program has provided funding for the Athletic Department to establish an environment which develops champions n and off the field.

Hurricane Traditions Four Fingers

It’s all about the “U”

THE HURRICANES It began in controversy. Some reports say the players on the 1927 football team held a team meeting to select Hurricanes, hoping they would sweep away opponents just as the devastating storm did on September 16, 1926. Another version holds that Jack Bell, a columnist for the old Miami News, asked end Porter Norris of the 1926 team what the team should be called. Told that the local dignitaries and University officials wanted to name the team for a local flora or fauna, Norris said the players wouldn’t stand for it and suggested “Hurricanes” since the opening game had been postponed by such a storm. ORANGE, GREEN AND WHITE UM’s school colors were selected in 1926. The colors of the Florida orange tree represent UM. Orange symbolizes the fruit of the tree, green represents the leaves and white, the blossoms.

THE U In 1973, UM’s Athletic Federation, the fund-raising arm of the athletic department at the time, commissioned a local public relations expert to develop a distinctive logo. The University had gone several years with a variety of helmet and uniform changes and the Federation noted that a number of major colleges have the initials UM. Miami designer Bill Bodenhamer suggested the “U” idea, which lent itself to distinctive logos for each sport as well as slogans like “U gotta believe” and “U is great.” SEBASTIAN THE IBIS Folklore maintains that the Ibis, a symbol of knowledge found in the Everglades and Egypt, is the last sign of wildlife to take shelter before a hurricane and the first to reappear after the storm. The local marsh bird was considered UM’s first unofficial mascot when the school yearbook adopted the name “Ibis” in 1926. Its popularity grew among the students during the 1950s. In 1957, San Sebastian Hall, a residence hall on campus, sponsored an Ibis entry in the homecoming celebration. The next year, student John Stormont performed at games in an Ibis costume that was glued, sewn and pinned together and was the forerunner of today’s bird. The Ibis has become one of the most recognizable college mascots in the United States. THE “SMOKE” The traditional Hurricane “smoke” entrance in the Orange Bowl began in the 1950s. In an attempt to increase fan interest, UM transportation director Bob Nalette came up with the idea of using fire extinguishers to produce the now-famous smoke that the Hurricanes run through as they enter the field. In his spare time almost 50 years ago, Nalette welded a pipe together that even today billows smoke from the top of the Hurricanes’ entrance tunnel. The original setup included flashing lights, two large hurricane flags and a tape of a hurricane being blasted over the loud speaker. The flags and lights are now gone but the smoke and sound track still remain.

CHEERLEADERS The University of Miami cheerleaders are the catalyst for school spirit. Along with cheering at both home and away athletic contests, the squads are a strong public relations arm for the University. The University of Miami has two squads: Co-Ed and All Girl. Under the direction of coaches Monica and Joe Sanchez, both former Miami cheerleaders, the co-ed cheer squad is consistently rated among the nation’s top squads. The All-Girl Squad is under the direction of former Miami cheerleader Beverly Hew. SUNSATIONS Now in their 23rd year of entertaining fans, the University of Miami Sunsations dance team is a squad of enthusiastic and talented performers. Their reputation for excellence has grown both locally and nationally. The Sunsations, coached by former member Kristine Stephenson, perform at many charitable and community service events in addition to Hurricane football and basketball games. BAND OF THE HOUR The University of Miami Band of the Hour has been in existence since 1933. The Band of the Hour is the largest and most spirited student organization on the UM campus and draws its membership from the entire student body, representing every state and most majors. Along with activities related to Hurricane football, the Band of the Hour has performed in national television variety shows, three major motion pictures, a national television commercial and the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Dublin, Ireland. The 2009-2010 Band of the Hour is led on the field by student drum majors Stephanie Gust, Jeffrey Lawson, and Brad Newman. The Director of the Band of the Hour is Thomas Keck.

WAR CANOE TROPHY An authentic Seminole war canoe, hand carved and painted by Seminole Indians from a 200year-old Everglades cypress tree felled by lighting, was donated on behalf of the city of Hollywood in 1955 as a trophy for the annual football game between Miami and Florida. The canoe symbolized the magnificent spirit and fighting determination traditional of the independent Florida Seminole tribe that was displayed annually between the Hurricanes and Gators. Today the canoe is on display in UM’s Sports Hall of Fame on campus.

Quarterbacks Over the last few decades, Miami has become one of the nation’s most proven producers of top quarterbacks.

1983 National Champion Bernie Kosar

Quarterbacks excel in Miami’s balanced prostyle offense. And they not only produce because of the system, they enter the professional ranks more prepared because of it. From Curci to Dorsey, a span of almost 50 years, Miami has consistently produced quarterbacks who have moved on to the next level and succeeded. Jim Kelly was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2002. Gino Torretta’s 2008 induction into the College Football Hall of Fame was the latest testament to the excellence of Miami’s quarterbacks through the years. Vinny Testaverde just finished his 23rd year in the National Football League.

The great running backs want the ball when the game is on the line. At Miami, running backs get the chance to shine with the nation watching. Their exploits draw the attention of the college football world. Miami’s balanced offensive philosophy places an emphasis on spreading the wealth. The running backs get their chance to make a difference. While the Miami passing game has deservedly developed a national reputation over the last 25 years, it’s the running game that has been the key when the Hurricanes have reached the pinnacle of the sport. Running behind an offensive line that traditionally ranks among college football’s best, Miami running backs have averaged almost 5.5 yards per carry over the last 10 seasons and have six 1,000-yard seasons in the last 12 years.

The success of Miami’s running backs hasn’t been lost on NFL scouts as 38 Hurricanes backs have been drafted by professional teams, including 16 since 1984. Miami backs have been first-round selections in the NFL draft 10 times. Take a look around the NFL and it’s easy to find runners from UM. Willis McGahee in Baltimore, Clinton Portis in Washington and Frank Gore in San Francisco are all starting running backs in the league.

All-time career rushing leader Ottis Anderson

In 2002, McGahee burst on the national scene by becoming only the fifth running back in college football history to rush for more than 1,500 yards and score more than 25 touchdowns in the same season on the way to consensus first-team All-America honors and a fourth-place finish in the voting for the Heisman Trophy. Clinton Portis (second-round draft choice of Denver in 2002) went on to earn 2002 AFC Rookie of the Year honors by The Sporting News and Sports Illustrated and NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year by the Associated Press. McGahee was a first-round draft choice of the Buffalo Bills in 2003.

2002 All-American tailback Willis McGahee

James, in his 10 NFL seasons, has rushed for 12,121 yards and played in four Pro Bowls. He has seven 1,000 yard rushing seasons. In 2008, Portis ranked third in the NFL in rushing yards (1,407) while Gore registered his third-straight 1,000 yard season. No other college can match the running backs that Miami has sent on to the NFL in recent years.

Wide Receivers Few schools can match Miami’s rich heritage of outstanding wide receivers. Split out wide or set at flanker, Miami receivers flourish in the Hurricanes’ offense before taking their talents to the next level. Pro scouts know that Miami produces wide receivers of the highest order. The latest crop of talented receivers includes five wideouts who have been drafted in just this decade alone, not to mention Devin Hester, who was moved to wide receiver by the Chicago Bears. And that’s just a hint of the success Hurricanes pass catchers have achieved over the years.

Miami’s balanced offense is built around spreading the wealth. Everyone gets their chance to shine. And every receiver is put in the position to make big plays in the big games. Recent stars Andre Johnson, Reggie Wayne, Santana Moss and Devin Hester shined in the NFL in 2008. Johnson, a 2003 first-round draft pick and three-time Pro Bowler, tied for the league-lead with 1,427 receiving yards. Wayne ranked 10th in the league with 1,130 receiving yards and was selected to his third Pro Bowl. Moss picked up his third-career 1,000-yard season with 1,044 yards. Hester made the switch to receiver and led the Bears with 580 yards while also gaining 877 yards in total return yards.

Tight Ends If you’re a tight end, you want to go to the University of Miami. As Sports Illustrated wrote last spring about Miami’s tradition of tight ends: “Top recruits know if they go to Miami they’ll be featured in the offense and instantly respected by pro teams. The recent lineage is incredible and there will likely be more to come.”

That lineage includes five tight ends currently in the NFL: Jeremy Shockey, Bubba Franks, Kellen Winslow and Greg Olsen.

Three Hurricanes tight ends have been named All-America.

Offensive Line The guys in the trenches make all the glitz and glamour of Miami’s spectacular offensive success possible, and the Hurricanes consistently have one of college football’s finest offensive lines. They make the Miami offensive machine go. The little school in Coral Gables has been an assembly line for offensive linemen for 60 years. Never has it been as productive as in recent seasons.

2001 Outland Trophy winner Bryant McKinnie

2004 NFL first round pick Vernon Carey

Miami’s offensive lines in this decade rank among the best ever assembled. Over the span of the last seven seasons, the offensive line made way for a 76-23 record while allowing a phenomenally low number of sacks. In fact, the starting unit allowed just eight sacks in 2002, three sacks in 2001 and only two during the 2000 season. Spearheading the unit was a pair of two-time All-America tackles in Bryant McKinnie and Joaquin Gonzalez and an All-America center in Brett Romberg. McKinnie became the first Miami player to win the coveted Outland Trophy in 2001. In 2002, Romberg won the Dave Rimington Award as college football’s best center. The latest All-American was Eric Winston in 2005. A tight end who was converted to offensive tackle, Winston came back from a serious knee injury to become one of college football’s top linemen in 2005.

Miami’s recent offensive lines have set a new standard of excellence for others to follow. But those Hurricanes were already following a rich tradition of Hurricanes linemen that dates back to the 1940s. More than 40 Hurricanes offensive linemen have been drafted, including four first-round selections. McKinnie, Martin Bibla and Gonzalez were chosen in the 2002 NFL Draft; Vernon Carey was a first-round choice in 2004; Chris Myers was selected in 2005; and Eric Winston was drafted in 2006.

Linebackers Several schools tout themselves as “Linebacker U.” While many schools can make a good argument, there’s no disputing the record of success University of Miami linebackers have built. And that’s why Sports Illustrated has called Miami “the new Linebacker U.” Since 1982, 21 Miami linebackers have been NFL draft picks, including first-round choices Ray Lewis (Baltimore Ravens, 1996), Dan Morgan (Carolina Panthers, 2001), Jonathan Vilma (New York Jets, 2004), D.J. Williams (Denver Broncos, 2004) and Jon Beason (Carolina Panthers, 2007). Four times Miami linebackers have been finalists for the prestigious Butkus Award, with Morgan winning the coveted trophy in 2000 as part of a season in which the star middle linebacker swept all three major defensive awards (Butkus, Bednarik and Nagurski awards).

Miami has long been known for its great quarterbacks, but the Hurricanes’ sustained success over the years has had just as much to do with outstanding defensive play as with the excellence of its offense. The school known as “Quarterback U” in football circles actually has an even stronger tradition of producing top linebackers.

Leon Williams of the Cleveland Browns

This has been particularly evident over the last 25 years, as eight first-team All-America linebackers have come from Miami and 22 Hurricanes linebackers have been taken in the NFL draft since 1982, including five first-round draftees. Jon Beason was selected by the Carolina Panthers in the first round of the 2007 draft. Miami linebackers have been at the forefront of the evolution of college defenses from large, pounding squads into disruptive units built around speed, pressure and opportunism.

The Hurricanes have been a consistent producer of big-time defensive backs, players who have thrived in Miami’s aggressive 4-3 defense for decades. Twelve Hurricanes defensive backs have earned All-America status, but many others have compiled standout college performances that have led to productive NFL careers. In 1966, Tom Beier became Miami’s first AllAmerican defensive back of the modern era, but Beier was just the start of a trend that continues to the present day. Such players as former NFL great Burgess Owens (1970-72), Fred Marion (1978-81), 1987 Thorpe Award winner Bennie Blades (1984-87) and Ryan McNeil (1989-92) also flourished at UM. In 2006, Bennie Blades was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame. The 2001 secondary may rank among the finest in collegiate history, as all four starters – safeties Ed Reed and James Lewis and cornerbacks Mike Rumph and Phillip Buchanon – were selected in the 2002 NFL draft, with Buchanon, Reed and Rumph going in the first round. In 2004, UM sent touted free safety Sean Taylor to the Washington Redskins with the fifth pick of the draft, and 2005 saw Antrel Rolle get selected in the first round by the Arizona Cardinals. In 2006, three Miami cornerbacks were drafted: Kelly Jennings (first round, Seattle), Devin Hester (second round, Chicago), and Marcus Maxey (fifth round, Kansas City). In 2007, safety Brandon Meriweather was taken in the first round by the New England Patriots and in 2008, safety Kenny Phillips went in the first round to the New York Giants.

A whopping 41 professional draftees, including 25 since 1988 – more than one draft choice per year – and 12 firstround NFL draft picks. At least two Miami defensive backs have been chosen in the same draft a total of eight times. For defensive backs, Miami is the pathway to greatness.

Want more proof? Just go back and watch the first play of Super Bowl XLI, when Devin Hester ran back the opening kickoff for a touchdown. As a rookie in 2007, Hester set an NFL record with six touchdowns on returns. Since 1995, the Hurricanes have blocked 48 kicks or punts. Over the last seven seasons, Miami has returned punts for touchdowns a whopping 17 times!

1991 first-team All-American Carlos Huerta

In addition to Hester, some of the greatest return men in college football history have plied their skills at Miami: Phillip Buchanon, Santana Moss, Daryl Jones, Kevin Williams, Wesley Carroll, Darryl Spencer, Tremain Mack, Roscoe Parrish and Randal Hill. The Hurricanes annually rank among the nation’s best in kickoff returns and punt returns. Several names that rank among the finest placekickers in college history played for the Hurricanes: Carlos Huerta, Greg Cox, Danny Miller, Dane Prewitt, 2001 All-American Todd Sievers and Jon Peattie. No small factor in the success of the Hurricanes has been consistent excellence at punter. Players such as Rick Tuten, Jeff Feagles, Pat Barrett, Harry Ghaul and Freddie Capshaw have established a tradition of a punting game that can pin opponents deep and allows for the Hurricanes defense to set up scoring opportunities for the offense.

The University of Miami is the ideal place for football players to walk on and become an integral part of a team. Many walk-ons go on to eventually earn athletic scholarships, but all have the opportunity to become a part of a football program rich in tradition while attending an educational institution with an outstanding reputation for higher learning. Beginning in the early 1980s, when the Hurricanes began their run of five national championships, and continuing under head coach Randy Shannon, walk-ons have always played a part in the program’s success. Carlos Huerta (1988-91) is just one of the numerous former UM walk-ons to garner honors at the college level and move on to pro football. Huerta, the starting placekicker on UM’s 1991 national championship team, emerged to become a consensus All-American. In 1998, walk-on offensive lineman Joaquin Gonzalez was placed on scholarship. Gonzalez, who had an academic scholarship to attend UM, went on to become the first offensive lineman in Big East history to be named Rookie of the Year. Earning Big East All-Academic honors four times in his career, Gonzalez was named a first-team All-America by the Football Writers Association in 2000 and 2001, and was the 2001 Draddy Award winner (Academic Heisman) recognizing college football’s top student-athlete.

Each year, the University of Miami football program looks to junior colleges across the country in search of veteran players ready to step into key roles with the Hurricanes. Nearly every season since 1980, a junior college graduate has lined up for the Hurricanes. Whether being recruited or walking on, a scholarship can be obtained for those junior college players displaying the necessary skills to play at the University of Miami. “The University of Miami has a long-standing tradition of finding junior college players who have helped us win national championships,” says head coach Randy Shannon. “We will continue to look for quality players at the junior college level across America.” From the days in the early 1980s, when the Hurricanes claimed their first of five national championships, junior college players have been important members of UM teams.

Fast Track A list of the greatest football players in Miami history closely resembles a listing of UM track and field greats. That’s not just a coincidence. At Miami, the dual-sport athlete is appreciated and coveted.

Now a star receiver in the NFL, Andre Johnson won BIG EAST dash titles during his UM days

Miami football players have proven themselves as forces to be reckoned with in track and field. In 13 seasons of BIG EAST competition, UM gridders won 31 conference titles, including 12 indoor titles and 19 outdoor titles, while setting four conference records. Miami football players still hold seven UM indoor records and eight UM outdoor marks in the BIG EAST. Now in the Atlantic Coast Conference, UM football players, led by wide receiver Lance Leggett, have proved strong contenders in both the ACC indoor and outdoor championships. Wide receiver and kick returner Santana Moss was a four-time BIG EAST champion and the 2000 BIG EAST Most Outstanding Field Performer

Hurricanes football players have asserted dominance in track since Bennie Blades set the UM indoor record in the 300 meters in 1985. UM’s first football/track superstar was AllAmerican receiver Horace Copeland, the 1992 BIG EAST Most Outstanding Performer after winning the long jump, 100-meters, and 4x100-meter relay at the conference meet. He went on to become the first UM track athlete to earn All-America honors.

2004 BIG EAST indoor long jump champion wide receiver Devin Hester

All-American wide receiver Santana Moss became the second Hurricane to be named BIG EAST Most Outstanding Field Performer after winning both the long jump and the triple jump at the 2000 outdoor meet. Also in 2000, Aaron Moser won his third consecutive decathlon title and went on to become the second Miami football player to earn AllAmerica honors in track and field. In recent years, All-America safety Ed Reed won the 1999 BIG EAST title in the javelin, receiver Andre Johnson won 2002 titles in the indoor 60 meters and the outdoor 100-meter dash, and wide receiver Terrell Walden won the 2003 Big East indoor 60-meter dash title and the outdoor 100 crown. At the 2004 indoor championships, wide receiver Devin Hester won the long jump and defensive back Tanard Davis captured the 60-meter title. In 2006, wide receiver Lance Leggett was the ACC 400-meter outdoor hurdles champion, and he placed second in the 110-meter hurdles. In the ACC Indoor Championships, Leggett was also second in the ACC indoor 60-meter hurdles. In 2007, he earned All-ACC honors.

RANDY SHANNON HEAD COACH When you think of college football over the last quarter century, you think of the Miami Hurricanes. And when you think of the Miami Hurricanes, you think of Randy Shannon. Going into his third season at the helm of his alma mater’s program in 2009, Shannon is coming off a season where he guided the Hurricanes to the program’s 34th overall bowl appearance at the 2008 Emerald Bowl. Miami finished the 2008 season 7-6 and 4-4 in Coach Shannon greets former UM defensive tackle Dwayne the Atlantic Coast Johnson -- a.k.a. The Rock -- at commencement ceremonies in Conference, which was May 2007 just one game out of first place in the league. In 2008, Shannon’s squad had a five-game winning streak, which was the longest for the Hurricanes since 2005. Freshman linebacker Sean Spence was named the ACC Defensive Rookie of the Year and kicker Matt Bosher was a semifinalist for the Lou Groza Award given to the nation’s best kicker. Four freshmen - LB Sean Spence, DT Marcus Forston, DE Marcus Robinson, PR/KR Travis Benjamin earned freshman All-America honors. Miami also ranked No. 7 nationally in pass defense, 25th in tackles for loss and 28th overall in total defense yielding 317.56 yards per game. The 2008 Hurricanes also were among top teams in the ACC in punt returns (first), pass defense (second), scoring offense (third), net punting (fourth) and tackles for loss (fourth). Off the field, the team again posted one of the best NCAA Academic Progress Rates (APR) nationally. UM had an APR of 977, which was the 7th-highest rate in the country out of 119 Bowl-Subdivision football programs. It also was the second highest in the Atlantic Coast Conference and highest among all schools in Florida.

hurricanesports.com

Shannon was named head football coach of the University of Miami on December 8, 2006, following six seasons serving as the team's defensive coordinator. He coached top 10 defenses in five of those six seasons. A native of Miami, a former Hurricanes player and a graduate of the University, Shannon played on or was a coach for three of the school's five national championship teams. He played for the Hurricanes from 1985 through 1988 and had been an assistant coach for 13 seasons before being named the 20th head coach in school history. Shannon coached Miami to a 31-3 win over Marshall in his head coaching debut on Sept 1, 2007. The Hurricanes went on to finish 5-7 and 2-6 in the Atlantic Coast Conference. His Hurricanes showed promise for the future of the program. Shannon’s 2007 team upheld UM’s academic success off the field. The UM football team achieved a NCAA Academic Progress Rate (APR) of 969, which was the 8th-highest rate in the country out of 119 Bowl-Subdivision football programs. Miami’s 2008 signing class ranked as the top class in the country by ESPN.com. The 2009 signing class ranked in the top 10 nationally as Miami signed six players ranked in the ESPN.com Top 150. “Randy Shannon is Miami - tough, disciplined, smart, caring, passionate, enthusiastic, and no-nonsense,” said University of Miami President Donna E. Shalala. “He has been preparing himself for a head coaching position his whole life and I am very happy that the opportunity came at the University of Miami, his alma mater.” In his six seasons as defensive coordinator, the Hurricanes had seven All-America players (and he tutored eight other All-Americans as a position coach). As a head coach and defensive coordinator, he’s coached 14 defensive players who were selected in the first round of the NFL draft. As a player, Shannon was a member of five teams that went to bowl games (including one as a redshirt freshman). He has coached in 12 bowl games. “This is my dream job. It always has been,” Shannon said. “This program is not at a standstill. The program is not on a downslide. We are on an upward movement. As a coach, you want a challenge. I want somebody to say that I can't do it. If I hear ‘I can't,’ I’m going to prove you wrong. Nobody can ever tell you that you cannot achieve what you want. That’s what I believe in. “I want to make sure everyone understands that we will get it done at the University of Miami,” Shannon continued. “We’re not a program that’s going to stand still. You never stay the same in life. You always go up and down. You try to get better every year, every day, every week, every second.”

Shannon attended Miami’s Norland High School and earned all-state and honorable mention All-America recognition from Street & Smith’s as a senior linebacker at Norland. He also lettered in basketball, averaging 19 points a game, and he competed in the triple jump on the track and field team. As a player at Miami, Shannon was a four-year letterman at linebacker and the starter on the 1987 national championship team. He received the Christopher Plumer Award for most inspirational player as a senior in 1988. He was described by his coaches as “a coach on the field.” Shannon concluded his career in 1988 when he ranked fourth on the team in tackles, sacks and tackles for loss, while leading the team in passes broken up and forced fumbles. An 11th-round draft choice of the Dallas Cowboys in 1989, he became the first rookie to start at outside linebacker for Dallas since 1963 and was also a standout on special teams. Shannon played for the Cowboys for two seasons before going into coaching. He was a graduate assistant in 1991 when the Hurricanes won their fourth national championship. In 1992 he became a full-time assistant coach working with the defensive line, and from 1993-97 he coached the team's linebackers. He was a defensive assistant with the Miami Dolphins in 1998 and 1999 before assuming the role of linebackers coach in 2000. Shannon returned to his alma mater in 2001 as defensive coordinator. That year, the Miami Hurricanes won their fifth national championship and he became the first UM coach to be named the winner of the Frank Broyles Award, presented annually to the nation's top assistant coach. Shannon has produced defenses that rank among the best in the history of the program. Despite a 7-6 record in 2006, the defense ranked seventh in the country in total defense (allowing only 255.5 yards per game), fourth in rushing defense (a team-record 67.9 yards a game) and 13th in scoring defense (15.5). In 2005, Shannon's aggressive 4-3 scheme led the nation most of the season in nearly every category and finished No. 1 in pass defense (152.17 ypg) and pass efficiency (89.48 rating), fourth in total defense (270.08 ypg) and scoring defense (14.25 points), and 23rd in run defense (117.92). He was named Defensive Coordinator of the Year by Rivals.com. In 2004, Shannon's defense ranked ninth in the country in pass defense despite having three new starters in the secondary. The UM defenses in 2002 and 2003 led the nation in fewest passing yards allowed, and the 2003 unit was fourth nationally in pass efficiency defense (96.16 rating), while finishing second in the nation in total defense (257.5 ypg). The 2003 Hurricanes also ranked among the national leaders

His 2002 unit led the nation in passing yards allowed (119.7 ypg) and in pass efficiency defense (83.91 rating), while finishing seventh in the nation in total defense (285.0 ypg), all of which was accomplished with an entirely new starting unit in the defensive secondary.

The 2001 Hurricanes allowed just 12 touchdowns (seven rushing, five passing) and scored seven touchdowns of their own. Shannon’s defenses have been ranked in the top 10 in turnover margin twice and led the nation in 2001. It’s no wonder Shannon has been successful as a coach. As a linebacker during the late 1980s, he was a film room guru, studying hours and hours of tape to learn the offensive tendencies of the opponents he faced each Saturday on the football field. His commitment to being a student of the game often paid huge dividends, such as on Sept. 5, 1987, in the Orange Bowl, when he returned an interception 41

WHAT THEY SAY ABOUT RANDY SHANNON:

“RANDY WAS A COACH ON THE FIELD. HE GOT THE DEFENSIVE PLAYERS IN LINE. I REMEMBER RANDY AS A LINEBACKER DURING SPRING DRILLS UNDER JIMMY JOHNSON AND I WAS A YOUNG FRESHMAN DOING EVERYTHING FULL SPEED, AND HE SAID, ‘HEY GINO, THERE’S A LOT OF TIME LEFT. MAKE SURE YOU PACE YOURSELF.’ HE WAS ALWAYS TRYING TO TEACH THE GAME. NOT ONLY IS HE A TEACHER, BUT HE’S ALWAYS TRYING TO LEARN AND IMPROVE HIMSELF.” - GINO TORRETTA, 1991 HEISMAN TROPHY WINNER AND NATIONAL CHAMPION “RANDY IS VERY EVEN-MANNERED. BUT HE’S ALWAYS BEEN A SMART, SAVVY PERSON, AND HE BRINGS THOSE ATTRIBUTES TO HIS POSITION AS HEAD COACH. I KNOW THE LOVE HE HAS FOR THE TEAM AND THE UNIVERSITY. HE HAS PAID HIS DUES AND HE WAS READY. I REMEMBER OUR PLAYING DAYS AND GUYS WOULD BE DOWN AND JIMMY JOHNSON WOULD BE BEATING DOWN ON US AND COACH WANNSTEDT WOULD BE GETTING AFTER US, AND RANDY WOULD DO SOMETHING FUNNY. HE SAID IT WAS TO TAKE HIS MIND OFF THE DOG DAYS OF PRACTICE, BUT IT DID SOMETHING FOR US, TOO. THAT’S HOW HE’LL BE AS COACH - SERIOUS BUT HE ALSO LIKES TO HAVE FUN.” - RUSSELL MARYLAND, NO. 1 OVERALL NFL DRAFT CHOICE 1991

demic institution that does a tremendous job in educating student-athletes and preparing them for life after sports.” Shannon is known for his quiet yet strong demeanor. He works with great intensity and dedication. His pride in his alma mater is always paramount. “Once you’re a part of the University of Miami, you’ll always bleed orange and green. You never forget those experiences as a player or coach, because they’ll always be a part of your life,” Shannon says. Shannon brims with confidence that is supported by a lifetime of success. “We’re going to do a lot of great things here for the community, for the school, and for the football program,” he says. “We’re going to have accountability, discipline, and a lot of emotion to do the right things. Being at Miami, the expectations are always high. Players come to Miami because they know they will always have an opportunity to win the national championship. If you settle for less, you’re going to become less. We’re going to have a lot of fun. And we’re going to win.”

Randy Shannon was one of five college football coaches to participate in a seven-day Middle East tour during May of 2008. The tour was a joint effort of Morale Entertainment and Armed Forces Entertainment. Joining Coach Shannon on the trip were Mark Richt of Georgia, Tommy Tuberville from Auburn, Yale University's Jack Siedlecki and Charlie Weis of Notre Dame. The tour was a first-of-its-kind for NCAA football and for Armed Forces Entertainment.

yards for a touchdown in the Hurricanes’ 31-4 romp over the Florida Gators. But his studious approach to game preparation wasn’t limited solely to the gridiron. Shannon was a true student-athlete, graduating with a degree in liberal arts. “It was about more than just the X’s and O’s,” Shannon said. “I wanted to grow intellectually, and I knew that academics were a key to success.” Many of Shannon’s players have gone on to star in the NFL. But it is not the superstar success his players have achieved as professional athletes of which Shannon is most proud. “I’m excited for them because they’ve earned their college degrees,” he says. “Football is your life when you’re playing, but when it’s over and you sit down and realize that there are no more cheers from the crowds, you realize how special academics really are.” The University of Miami, Shannon says, “is not a football factory.

MARK WHIPPLE ASSISTANT ASSISTANT HEAD HEAD COACH COACH Offensive Offensive Coordinator/Quarterbacks Coordinator/Quarterbacks Mark Whipple is in his first season as assistant head coach, offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at the University of Miami. He was named to his position on January 24, 2009. A veteran of 27 seasons as a coach on both the collegiate and professional levels, Whipple inherits a unit that returns nine starters, an experienced young quarterback, one of the top running back tandems in the Atlantic Coast Conference, a talented group of receivers and an offensive line that returns three starters. He will also serve as the quarterbacks coach. Whipple spent the 2008 season as an offensive assistant coach with the Philadelphia Eagles, helping the team to an appearance in the NFC championship game. Before joining the Eagles, he served as the quarterbacks coach of the Pittsburgh Steelers from 2004-06 where he was instrumental in the development of Ben Roethlisberger, who became the youngest starting quarterback to win a Super Bowl as a rookie. In 2004, Roethlisberger became the first NFL quarterback to finish a season undefeated with a 13-0 record in games he started. Prior to his move to the NFL, Whipple spent 16 seasons as a head coach at the collegiate level compiling an overall record of 121-59 (.672) with stops at the University of Massachusetts, Brown and New Haven.

His 1992 team finished 12-1 and ranked No. 5 nationally, while his 1993 squad ranked as high as No. 2 nationally. At every stop in college, the trademark of a Whipple-coached team was a high-powered offense. His UMass teams rewrote the record books, setting more than 40 team records. In 1998, his national championship team posted school records in points scored (524), touchdowns (73), total yards (7,074), passing yards (4,050),

Whipple made four more stops over the next seven years (Union College, 1981-82; Brown, 1983; Arizona Wranglers of the USFL, 1984; New Hampshire, 1986-87) before landing his first head coaching appointment. A 1979 graduate of Brown, he was the Bears starting quarterback from 197778, leading the team to a 13-5 record as a starter. He was inducted into the Brown Athletic Hall of Fame in 1996. Whipple earned a bachelor's degree in political science. He was a member of the school's first-ever Ivy League championship team in 1976. He was also a four-year letterman on the Bears baseball team.

PROMINENT PLAYERS COACHED

JOE PANNUNZIO Tight Tight Ends/Special Ends/Special Teams Teams Coordinator Coordinator Joe Pannunzio is in his fourth season as the Hurricanes’ tight ends coach and special teams coordinator. In 2008, Pannunzio coached one of the best kickers in the country in Matt Bosher. Bosher earned Second Team All-ACC honors and was a semifinalist for the Lou Groza Award, given to the nation’s top kicker. In 2009, Bosher will return as the nation’s leader in field goal percentage as he connected on 90 percent (18-of-20) of his field goals. Bosher also earned second team All-ACC honors as a punter as Miami’s punt team ranked fourth in the ACC in net punting. Pannunzio also coached Miami’s third leading receiver in tight end Dedrick Epps who caught 22 passes for 304 yards. Epps became the first Hurricane tight end with a 100-yard receiving performance since Greg Olsen did it in 2005. Miami’s return game also thrived in 2008 with Freshman All-American Travis Benjamin, who led the ACC in punt returns averaging 11.3 yards per return. As a team, Miami led the ACC and ranked in the top 30 nationally in punt returns. In 2007, Pannunzio worked with a young group of tight ends which combined for five of Miami’s 16 touchdown receptions. In his first season in 2006, he tutored tight end Greg Olsen, who was selected by the Chicago Bears in the first round of the 2007 NFL draft. Pannunzio also did a fine job coaching UM’s special teams units. Both the punt return (27th) and kickoff return (55th) coverage units ranked in the top half of Division I-A in 2006. Pannunzio was the head coach at Murray State from 2000 to 2005 and was one of the most highly regarded tight ends/special teams coaches in the country during earlier stints at TCU, Minnesota, Mississippi and Auburn. Pannunzio has coached for the last 27 years in college football, steadily rising the ranks from a star player at Southern Colorado to head coach. In his six years as head coach at Murray State, his teams finished 30-37 and won one Ohio Valley Conference title and advanced to the playoffs one time. Prior to becoming a head coach, Pannunzio spent five years working for Tommy Tuberville at Mississippi and Auburn. Before that, he spent four years under Jim Wacker at TCU and Minnesota. He also coached for seven years at Mesa (Colo.) College, where the team appeared in the NAIA national championship game twice and led the nation in total offense and scoring one time. His two stints at Mesa wrapped around two years at Kansas, where he worked under Mike Gottfried. A native of Pueblo, Colo., Pannunzio was a standout quarterback at Southern Colorado, where he graduated with a degree in physical education in 1982. He was named honorable mention all-conference and in 1980, led his team to a No. 9 ranking in NAIA Division I. He and his wife, Rita, have two daughters, Angela and Nico and a son, Mario.

WESLEY McGRIFF Defensive Defensive Backs Backs Coach Coach Wesley McGriff is in his third year on the University of Miami coaching staff as the Hurricanes’ defensive backs coach. McGriff returns an experienced group in the secondary in 2009, with six players with starting experience back. In 2008, Miami ranked seventh nationally and second in the ACC in pass defense, yielding just 165.6 yards through the air. Only four teams threw for more than 200 yards in 13 contests, while four teams were held under 100 yards passing. In 2007, McGriff helped safety Kenny Phillips in his final season with the Hurricanes earn Second Team All-America honors. Phillips was the first round draft pick of the New York Giants. That season, Miami ranked sixth in the ACC in passing defense. An extremely versatile coach, McGriff has mentored players on both sides of the ball during his 18-year career, including two stints as a defensive coordinator. Considered one of the Big 12’s top recruiters, McGriff came to Miami in 2007 after a few weeks on the staff at Kansas State and four years at Baylor, where he served as recruiting coordinator and cornerbacks coach under Guy Morriss. At Baylor, McGriff’s defensive backs ranked 13th in pass efficiency in 2005. The 2005 Baylor defense allowed just 14 touchdowns through the air, its fewest since 1998, and recorded its most interceptions (16) since 1994, with McGriff’s cornerbacks accounting for 11 interceptions. Prior to his stint at Baylor, McGriff spent two seasons on Morriss’ Kentucky staff, coaching the running backs in 2001 before returning to the defensive side of the ball as UK's cornerbacks coach in 2002. McGriff spent the 2000 campaign as the secondary coach at Eastern Kentucky, where he mentored Yeremiah Bell, a first-team All-Ohio Valley Conference pick who went on to be drafted by the Miami Dolphins. The 2000 Colonels ranked fourth nationally in total defense, fifth in scoring defense and ninth in passing yardage allowed, while posting four shutouts during the season. From 1995 through 1999, McGriff served as assistant head coach, defensive coordinator and secondary coach at Kentucky State, where his defenses posted numerous top-10 statistical rankings, including leading the nation in total defense in 1995 and pass yardage defense in 1997. In 1998, he was named the American Football Coaches Association's NCAA Division II National Assistant Coach of the Year. McGriff began his coaching career as a graduate assistant coach at his alma mater, Savannah State, where he coached the Tigers’ running backs in 1990 before moving into a full-time role as secondary coach in 1991-92.

As one of the nation’s most respected line coaches, his lines at Michigan State and Syracuse were known for their outstanding run-blocking. Stoutland coached an offensive line in 2008 that blocked for the Atlantic Coast Conference’s third best scoring offense.

Strength Strength and and Conditioning Conditioning Assistant Assistant

Now in his ninth 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 studentathletes 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.

Victor Ishmael is in his ninth season at Miami as an assistant in the strength and conditioning department. He works primarily with the football program, and also with women’s rowing and women’s golf. He has spent more than 17 years working in the strength and conditioning field, and was the assistant director of strength and conditioning at North Carolina from 1998-2001. He also spent time at South Carolina and Georgia. Ishmael received a B.A. in English from South Carolina State in 1987, where he was a four-year letterman as an offensive lineman. Ishmael and his wife, Renee, have four children: sons Victor Jr. and Jabari, and daughters Marisa and Aiyana.

Compliance FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS WHO IS A PROSPECTIVE STUDENT-ATHLETE (PROSPECT)? You are a prospect if you have started classes for the ninth grade. 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 in-person 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.

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; • One athletic publication (e.g., media guide or recruiting brochure); • 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.

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) - Graig Cooper had a 66-yard punt return for a touchdown and rushed for another score, quarterback Jacory Harris accounted for two touchdowns and Miami moved into its new home with a 52-7 season-opening win over Charleston Southern. Javarris James rushed 12 times for 73 yards and a touchdown for the Hurricanes (1-0), who had a 21point first quarter, their highest-scoring period since Sept. 9, 2006 against Florida A&M. Derron Thomas and Shawnbrey McNeal also had touchdown runs for Miami, which outgained its outmatched opponents from the Football Championship Subdivision, 416-126. Harris was 16-for-26 for 190 yards for the Hurricanes.

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Fifth-ranked Florida snapped a six-game losing streak against Miami with a 26-3 victory at The Swamp. It was Florida's first win since 1985 in the on-again, offagain series. The Hurricanes (1-1) hung close for three quarters. UF QB Tim Tebow and Percy Harvin took over late and erased three quarters of frustration against Miami's improved defense. Robert Marve, making his first career start for Miami, was 10of-18 passing for 69 yards. Florida, whose two scores in the first half came off Miami miscues on special teams, led 9-3 to start the fourth quarter. But UF put together consecutive drives of 86 and 95 yards. The Gators took advantage of two favorable calls to score the first of the two late touchdowns. Florida might not have even scored in the first half had Miami not made two errors on special teams. Miami sucked the energy out of Florida Field - most of the record 90,833 in attendance were clad in orange and blue - with a 16-play drive that took 8:42 off the clock and kept Tebow on the sideline. It ended with a field goal, but gave the Hurricanes plenty of confidence they could play with the Mighty Gators.

COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) - Robert Marve threw two touchdown passes and Graig Cooper ran for career-high 128 yards and two scores as Miami picked apart Texas A&M's defense in a 41-23 rout. Marve, a redshirt freshman making his second career start, completed 16 of 22 passes for 212 yards. The Hurricanes (2-1) piled up 398 yards on 57 plays - an average of 6.98 yards per offensive snap - and handed A&M its worst nonconference defeat at Kyle Field since a 30-10 loss to Alabama in 1988. The Hurricanes gained 261 yards in the first half.

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) - Cameron Sexton threw a 14yard touchdown pass to Brooks Foster with 46 seconds left, Trimane Goddard had two interceptions in the final minutes, and North Carolina rallied from an early 14-point deficit to beat Miami 28-24. Miami had a chance late, getting the ball at its own 31. Robert Marve found Kayne Farquharson for a 29-yard gain that took the Hurricanes to the North Carolina 20 with 15 seconds remaining. Marve nearly hooked up with Farquharson again on the final play of the game, but Goddard's second pick of the quarter sealed the Tar Heels' win. Marve threw three touchdown passes for Miami (2-2, 0-1), and Graig Cooper rushed for 113 yards plus had a receiving TD for the Hurricanes.

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) - Antone Smith rushed for a career-best four touchdowns, including a game-clinching 20yarder with 3:57 remaining, and Florida State hung on to beat Miami 41-39. Travis Benjamin had an 18-yard touchdown run on an end-around, caught a 51-yard TD pass from Graig Cooper, and finished with 274 all-purpose yards for Miami. The ‘Canes trailed 24-3 at the half and 31-10 in the third quarter, then closed to within 34-32 with eight minutes remaining.

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) - Graig Cooper had a careerhigh 23 rushes for 90 yards, including the clinching touchdown after a muffed punt return late in the fourth quarter and Miami pulled out a 20-14 victory over UCF to snap a two-game losing streak. Robert Marve found Travis Benjamin with a 25-yard touchdown pass in the opening quarter for Miami (3-3). Miami's defense simply overwhelmed the Knights, forcing UCF (2-4) into a school-record 12 punts and only allowing 78 yards. The halftime stats were baffling. Miami outgained UCF 168-42, held nearly a 2-to-1 edge in time of possession, allowed Calabrese to connect on just 4 of 18 passes (including eight straight incompletions in one stretch), forced seven punts and blocked one of them - yet still led by only a field goal.

DURHAM, N.C.. (AP) - Jacory Harris threw four touchdown passes and ran for another, accounting for three third-quarter touchdowns to lead Miami past Duke 49-31. The freshman took over for starter Robert Marve in the second quarter and became the first Miami quarterback to both throw for four scores and account for five TDs since 2005, when Kyle Wright did it against Wake Forest. Harris finished 18-for-28 for 185 yards with two interceptions to help the Hurricanes rally from a 10-point deficit, outscore the Blue Devils 35-14 in the second half. Miami (4-3, 12 ACC) rolled up 420 yards in claiming its 78th straight win when scoring at least 42 points.

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) - Robert Marve had a 1-yard touchdown run to put Miami ahead for good, Matt Bosher kicked three field goals, and the Hurricanes' defense stiffened considerably in the second half on the way to beating Wake Forest 1610. Marve completed 11 of 20 passes for 153 yards and set up the go-ahead score in the third quarter with a 43-yard rush, helping Miami (5-3, 2-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) win consecutive league games for the first time since October 2006. Marve then hit Thearon Collier with a perfect 25-yard pass on thirdand-10 with 3 minutes left, getting Miami to midfield and allowing the Hurricanes to run out the clock. Bosher's field goals were from 36, 52 and 43 yards for Miami.

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) - Jacory Harris threw a tying touchdown pass in the final minute and another one in overtime to give Miami a 24-17 win over Virginia that gave the Hurricanes a tie for the lead in the ACC's Coastal Division. Harris hit LaRon Byrd with a desperation heave from 26 yards to tie it, and then found Aldarius Johnson near the left pylon to give them the lead in overtime. When Virginia tailback Cedric Peerman was stripped of the ball on the Cavaliers' first play of overtime, the Hurricanes (6-3, 3-2 ACC) had their fourth victory in a row. Miami's tying drive was a 95-yard, 15-play march, and it featured a 13-yard pass on a third-and-13 play at the beginning, and the touchdown on a third-and-15 prayer at the end. In the overtime, Harris faced a third-and-5 from the 9 when he passed to the 6-foot-2 Johnson, who beat 5-9 cornerback Vic Hall for the ball to give the Hurricanes the lead. Harris finished 12-for21 for 160 yards for Miami, and Graig Cooper ran for 131 yards on 24 carries as the Hurricanes outgained Virginia 448311 and overcame 81 yards in penalties.

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) - Javarris James ran for a touchdown, Matt Bosher kicked three field goals, and Miami got a huge defensive stand in the final minutes to beat Virginia Tech 16-14 on a Thursday night and move into first place in the Atlantic Coast Conference's Coastal Division. Marcus Robinson had three sacks and a big third-down tackle for a loss with 2:27 left to help the Hurricanes win their fifth straight. Robinson's stop on Dustin Pickle forced the Hokies, who were out of timeouts, into a fourth-and-3 - and Allen Bailey sacked Tyrod Taylor to seal the win for the Hurricanes, who knelt three times to run out the clock. Robert Marve threw for 121 yards and rushed for 44 more for the Hurricanes. Bosher connected from 21 and 31 yards in the third quarter, then added a 23-yarder early in the fourth for a 16-7 Miami advantage. Not only was it senior night for 23 Hurricanes, but Miami added five players - Jim Kelly, Cortez Kennedy, Jim Otto, Gino Torretta and Edgerrin James - to its ring of honor in a halftime ceremony.

ATLANTA, Ga. (AP) - Georgia Tech piled up 472 yards on the ground - the second-most ever allowed by the Hurricanes - in a 41-23 rout.

The Hurricanes trailed 27-3 before finally reaching the end zone midway through the third quarter. Robert Marve hit Dedrick Epps for an 18-yard TD pulling UM within 31-10. Jacory Harris capped off the Hurricanes scoring guiding them to two touchdowns. Harris hooked up with Leonard Hankerson for a 13-yard score. Kayne Farquharson had a 25-yard TD reception to finish out the scoring.

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Russell Wilson threw for two touchdowns and ran for a score to help NC State beat Miami 38-28. Wilson threw for 220 yards and ran for 58 more for the Wolfpack (6-6, 4-4 ACC), who pushed ahead for good late in the third quarter on Wilson's 32-yard pass to Owen Spencer. Andre Brown also scored twice and ran for 93 of the Wolfpack's 219 rushing yards against a Miami defense ranked 20th nationally. Javarris James ran for two touchdowns for the Hurricanes (7-5, 4-4), who led 21-20 midway through the third before the Wolfpack went ahead to stay. Junior tight end Dedrick Epps caught four passes for 101 yards. He tied the game in the first quarter on a 69-yard TD reception from Robert Marve. Marve and Jacory Harris combined for 269 yards passing.

2008 REVIEW

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (AP) - Zack Follett forced a fumble by Jacory Harris deep in Miami territory with 3:28 left, and Anthony Miller scored the go-ahead touchdown on his first career catch moments later in California's 24-17 victory in the Emerald Bowl. Jahvid Best rushed for a bowl-record 186 yards and two touchdowns, yet the Golden Bears (9-4) still needed a big defensive play and an unlikely hero to hold off the Hurricanes (7-6) in front of a Bay Area crowd. Harris played well in the freshman's second career start, going 25-of-41 for 194 yards and two TDs. Harris had won 31 straight starts dating back to his high school career in South Florida. LaRon Byrd and Thearon Collier caught Harris' scoring passes for Miami, which tied it on Matt Bosher's 22-yard field goal with 9:13 to play. After Cal's Giorgio Tavecchio missed a 34-yard field goal with 4:24 left, Follett knocked the ball away from Harris while dropping the quarterback from behind on third down. Cameron Jordan recovered and returned it to the Miami 2, where Longshore connected with Miller.
