Will Worst Loss Ever Cost Miami Hurricanes Coach His Job?

Miami Hurricanes Worst Loss Ever

There’s bad. Then there’s the worst loss ever.

Miami Hurricanes fans and former players witnessed both on Saturday.

Clemson, the No. 6 ranked team in the country, handed Miami their worst loss ever, defeating the Hurricanes 58-0 in front of the Miami fans this weekend, ESPN reported.

Before Saturday, the Hurricanes’ worst loss ever had been a 70-14 defeat against Texas A&M back in 1944. It also marked the first time Miami had been shut out since a 2007 contest against Virginia.

The loss was so bad, reports were circulating that the school might make a change in leadership soon after the game ended. But no decision on head coach Al Golden’s future will be announced today, ESPN reporter Brett McMurphy disclosed hours after the contest.

Miami’s Athletic Director Blake James echoed his season-long mantra that he would wait until the end of the season to make a decision on Golden’s employment despite his school suffering its worst loss ever.

“We are all disappointed with today’s outcome. Any one who loves Miami is disappointed. But we have another game next week and we need to make sure we continue to support our team.”

Despite suffering the worst loss ever, Al Golden didn’t mince words or make excuses.

“We got beat, from top to bottom. They outplayed us. They out-coached us. I just told the team that it’s completely my responsibility for not getting them ready to play. They beat us soundly in every facet of the game.”

Former Miami Hurricanes players didn’t even wait until halftime to voice their displeasure about what they saw on the field and the coach who was in charge of the program’s worst loss ever, ESPN reported.

Hurricanes alum Warren Sapp, who was an All-American tackle at Miami, was critical of Golden from the onset, eventually calling for the coach’s ouster twice during the game.

Another tackle also commented on the worst loss ever. Bryant McKinnie, a two-time All-American for the Hurricanes, took to Twitter to tell followers its time for a change in leadership in Miami.

Moments later, Bryant tweeted, “UM better take a page out the Dolphins notebook & y’all know what I mean,” referencing the Miami Dolphins, who decided to fire their coach mid-season this year.

Leon Searcy, who was a part of three national championship teams for the Hurricanes, also got into the action of calling out Golden for his team’s poor performance.

And there was more. Joaquin Gonzalez, a former team captain for the University of Miami, wrote tweets with a few choice four-letter words. Phillip Buchanon, a member of the Miami Hurricanes 2001 Championship team, called for an immediate change.
