Micheal Barrow

To say that this is an unexpected development would be quite the understatement.

First reported by, multiple media outlets subsequently confirmed overnight that Micheal Barrow abruptly stepped down from his post as Miami’s linebackers coach yesterday.  Barrow, a former Hurricanes player, would’ve been entering his eight season at his alma mater, having joined Randy Shannon‘s staff in 2007.

The U opens summer camp in just four days.  Normally when a coach leaves this close to the start of camp, it’s for one of three reasons: family, health or the NCAA.  According to Bruce Feldman of, it’s a combination of the first two.

A school spokesperson said that a statement addressing Al Golden‘s coaching staff is expected to be released at some point Friday.

    Sad to see Barrow leave but I’m glad that he’s putting FAMILY first. Hopefully, he will be back on the staff in some capacity (D-Coordinator?) after this season. Get well Mrs Barrow!

    My mother is 84 years old and I completely understand the need to see an ailing parent through a health crisis.

    Best wishes and a speedy recovery is my prayer..

    Not to nitpick, but Coach Barrow’s first name is spelled Micheal, not Michael. Wishing the best to him and his mom.

    And thanks for the memory of one of the biggest hits in CFB history when he laid out FSU’s Tamarick Vanover on a crossing pattern in the closing moments of Miami’s historic win in ’92.
