CaneInsider has learned that Al Golden spoke to a source inside the Miami Hurricanes’ football program and said emphatically, “I’m not leaving,” earlier today. The source requested anonymity because of the sensitivity of the current situation.
CaneINsider believes that coach Golden is committed to finishing the work he started at Miami based on the characterizing of the sources comments. Golden is set to close this year’s 2014 recruiting class, which his widely seen as top 10 by all recruiting services and stay in Miami where his family has found a home. Something he’s said on numerous occasions previously.
Though highly attractive to Penn State, Golden may be using this opening in State College as a chance to increase his salary at Miami for himself and his staff. Miami coaches are in the bottom third of salaries nationally, in college football according to a source.
The source also indicated that Golden communicated directly with the staff issuing a firm directive to continue to recruit the current class with the understanding that he will remain the head coach.
