Miami’s OC reportedly takes same job with Jaguars

Al Golden AP

Another college coach has been plucked by the NFL. This time, it’s Miami offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported Saturday morning that Fisch will become the OC for the Jacksonville Jaguars. A spokesperson confirmed the news to the Miami Herald and South Florida Sun-Sentinel confirmed Schefter’s report as well.

Fisch has prior experience in the NFL. He came to Miami in 2011 after a brief stint with the Seattle Seahawks. He’s also coached with the Denver Broncos, Baltimore Ravens and Houston Texans.

The Miami Hurricanes averaged 31.4 points per game in 2012, but were streaky on offense. Still quarterback Stephen Morris threw for over 3,000 yards and freshman running back Duke Johnson rushed for nearly 1,000 and was one of the most explosive players in the country.

Fisch will become the second departure from Al Golden‘s staff.  Wide receivers coach George McDonald joined Brett Bielema‘s staff at Arkansas, but left to become the OC at Syracuse about a month later.

    Bet George McDonald is kicking himself considering this would have been his job to take.

    Enjoy Syracuse though.

    Wow everyone is leaving town,must be the bucks in pros.

    0 draft eligible juniors leave.
    Lose 1 assistant (replaced by a HC)
    Lose 1 coordinator (to be replaced).

    Yeah *everyone* is gone, it’s like a ghost town.

    well said. It is because Kozbee gets his sports news here, where Benny K continuously rails against the U, that he thinks the ship is sinking at Miami.

    Golden is an exceptional head coach and is building something exceptional in Coral Gables.

    He will find a very competent OC, he found Fisch who had UMs offense cranking last year.

    Hoping he pulls in some stellar recruits too as the month ends.

    Losing and changing coordinators lead to the demise of Randy Shannon as the coach of the Hurricanes plus Shannon was a better recruiter.
    Shannon was smart enough to recruit the “State of Miami” instead of wasting time recruiting kids from New Jersey and the Northeast who are barely good enough to go to Penn State.
    Al Golden’s days are numbered.

    Randy Shannon’s terrible job developing players is what caused his demise… So glad he’s gone.

    Ship sinking? Well, if you ignore the MOUNTAIN OF DATA that supports that then, yeah, not taking on water. I’ve been telling you clowns for five years that your program is steadily fluttering down to where a program of your caliber belongs, the middle of the pack. Sorry, JJ aint coming back, it’s 2013, the landscape has completely changed, []_[] went BACKWARD the entire time. It’s OVA.

    But keep clinging to that laughable notion that your CAREER .500 COACH is something special. He’s currently getting hosed by schools with far better recruiting staffs. But yeah, []_[] can build a championship caliber team with kids from Jersey. Fool.

  8. chachooga says: Jan 20, 2013 9:18 AM


    Fool? Ha you really have no clue. You remember post Erickson (who i might add came from Idaho and made the U great) when Butch Davis created a monster under sanctions as SI called for the dismantling of football at Miami? He produced the greatest NCAA football team ever in 2001, in terms of NFL talent and domination. (UM has 12 guys in the games today, nearly more than the second and third schools Oregon/Florida combined).

    So you can say “middle of the pack” or whatever you want, but it is quite obviously you have Benny K syndrome.

    Al Golden is exceptional, and you have never heard him talk or followed him closely over the last few years. He made Temple a bowl team, and in case you missed it there are Temple kids on NFL rosters drafted in early rounds.

    Last year he had UM in the ACC championship game, but chose to impose sanctions to clean up other peoples garbage. Sure they lost close games they shouldn’t have. But other great coaches that took over garbage like what Randy Shannon left needed a couple years.

    I know Golden isn’t a Saban, Bowden, Stoops, Meyer name. But he is committed to taking a great brand at the U and getting the best talent in the country and making it great again.

    I like the current state of UM. You can hate all you want. But others in the talking head circles like what they see with Golden too.

    And dude Ed Reed was a Tulane commit. So whether Jersey kids or whatever, if Golden sees talent and brings it….bring it! But i do prefer South Florida Talent. You know like Duke Johnson.

    You haters are so comical and uninformed. Hope this helps you.

    @rodge @dalucks

    for real…among other things for sure…and shannon never lost a guy to be OC in the NFL that is for sure.

    Golden is a different beast.

  10. 35longmiles says: Jan 20, 2013 9:28 AM

    ERickson…blah blah blah
    davis…blah blah blah
    Reed….blah blah blah…

    Oh WOW! made Temple a bowl team. That’s the kind of thing that top programs are looking for. A career .500 coach that made a program that was throwing money at a wide open conference, a…wait for it…A BOWL TEAM. He has nice ties and a nice haircut and not much else. It is comical to watch you head-in-the-sand cane fans bang the drum. It’s not hate, it’s PURE COMEDY. You can’t understand the difference. But good job on citing bygone eras in your support for a resurgence. And for every Ed Reed you have 20 Kelvin Cains. Keep dominating Jersey while the big boys fight for the Florida talent. You get a bone here and there but far from enough to build anything lasting. How’s that DT recruiting going down there????? UM is a JOKE at DT and Golden is WHIFFING at DT. Great job.

  11. chachooga says: Jan 20, 2013 9:41 AM


    hahahaha you obviously follow recruiting but keep blinders on to any success.

    Two top DT prospects Bostwick & Bryant have UM in there, and they will land one of the two if not both.

    Top Talent Kirkland, Coley, Thomas, Collins among others have UM up there and Godlen will land a couple of them.

    And you mentioning Jersey over and over means you must be bitter that Golden pulled AQ Muhammed at the Army All Star game. A top DE not even considering Miami until he sat with Golden.

    Comical is you screaming hate when a guy is doing a great job. You are quite obviously a true hater…..and to further inform you, in the history of college footbal, ten years out of dominance is not even close to impossible to come back from….especially at a place like the U that everyone knows and either loves or hates.

    great days ahead in the Golden Era…..then there is you.

    Go Canes!

  12. 35longmiles says: Jan 20, 2013 9:57 AM

    have UM “in there?” LOL. So you’ll get ONE DT and that’s going to fix UM’s laughable defensive interior. Like I said, hes WHIFFING at DT.

    Great days? Been hearing that EXACT SAME nonsense during off season from you clowns for over five years. Same depthless crap at end of season. You BACKED into soft ass coastal anyway. Keep bragging.

    Wash…rinse ….repeat…. That’s the futility of UM football.

  13. chachooga says: Jan 20, 2013 1:00 PM

    Wow your ignorance and distain is comical.

    He will pull two DTs. Yes there are intererior problems.

    Who is bragging???? Who cares how they got there….you are pathetic fan of NCAA football if you don’t realize those deemed “champions” quite often “back into” championship games or nearly lose to very bad teams throughout the year. I was only defending UM from your obviously hater laced blabber. You can dismiss the fact that they were in the ACC champ game all you want. But it makes you look ridiculous.

    My point is only UM is not sinking. They actually have something good going. Golden is excellent and that Fisch was taken to be an NFL OC is a positive. It is not the same as Shannon years where they left because they stunk and couldn’t develop talent.

    UM will close well with recruiting and quite possibly have an outstanding class.

    You don’t see it for some reason…obvious reasons.

    the haters always hate….it is funny.

    go Canes!

    Did you see how the ACC performed in bowl games? You probably have some lame dismissal of that too….comedy comedy comedy are the haters.

    Chachooga don’t waste your time with 35Long. He’s just taking out his fat aggressions on you due to his Gayturds getting stomped on by a Big East team. He’s just a keyboard cowboy sitting in his moms basement with nothing to do.

  15. chachooga says: Jan 20, 2013 3:04 PM


    ha. I was guessing he was a Turd fan. Didn’t wanna coax him though.

    Looks like UM is in great shape for 4* DT Bostwick. Probably will commit on Thursday during Golden in home.

    Golden really needs to get Kirkland & Thomas from Booker T., RB Collins, and somehow get DT Bryant to pick the Canes.

    That will be a tough haul, but it could happen. WR Coley would be huge as well.

  16. chachooga says: Jan 20, 2013 3:07 PM


    Keith Bryant’s mom apparently loved the visit to Miami this weekend with Golden. Would be huge to get both Bryant & Bostwick.

    we shall see.

  17. 35longmiles says: Jan 20, 2013 4:51 PM

    Huge pickup in Ufomba Kumalu……


    2-star madness

  18. chachooga says: Jan 20, 2013 8:19 PM


    You really are something.

    There is a guy named Manelik Watson, another named Woerner….both potential first round picks….it is weird they were foreign players that had low ratings out of H.S……..worth a risk….

    I sure hope I remember you on signing day…doubt I will…but hope I get to gloat a little….

    You hate the U so much that you pay attention to them signing two star recruits….what are they serving in the cafeteria for recruit visits??? I am sure you have something bad to say about the menu.

    comedy gold.

  19. 35longmiles says: Jan 20, 2013 8:47 PM

    WHIFFING at DT but Bryant’s MOM loved the visit. Supposed to be a huge recruiting weekend i CG and all that happpened is the OC bolted.

  20. chachooga says: Jan 21, 2013 2:46 PM

    Keep hatin’ 35…..

    Maybe the 2star Nigerian Nightmare will start by the time UM plays the turds next year and put your 5star QB on his backside….just sayin’

    I mean Louisville managed to whoop your boyz even while your guys were roid raging all game, even willie muschamp was amped on something….hahaha

    Beware of the Nigerian Nightmare…..bwwwaaahahahahah
