A very familiar face to both the Miami football program and the high school sports scene in that area has come back to the Hurricanes.
The U announced Monday morning that Tim “Ice” Harris has resigned his post as the head coach at Miami Booker T. Washington High School to join Al Golden‘s staff as assistant director of football operations. The release states that Harris “will be the primary liaison with high school coaches” as well as assisting “in coordinating community service events for current student-athletes.”
From 2008-10, Harris served as the assistant to former UM head coach Randy Shannon, coordinating the football team’s community relations projects as well as assisting in other day-to-day operations of the football program.
Harris served two different stints as the head coach at high school powerhouse Booker T. Washington. The school won back-to-back Class 4A state championships in 2012 and 2013, and last season they were the top-ranked high school football team in the country according to MaxPreps.
Harris’ son, Tim Harris Jr., is expected to take over for his father as the high school’s head coach. Another of Harris’ sons, Brandon Harris, played cornerback for the Hurricanes late last decade.
