Report: Manny Diaz Leaving Temple to Return to Miami

Sunday night stunner!

Check it:

Here’s the deal:

Diaz took the Temple job a few weeks ago after leaving his job as Miami’s defensive coordinator.

Today, Hurricanes head coach Mark Richt resigned suddenly, leaving the post wide open. Diaz has apparently been in contact with Miami and will reportedly take over for Richt, basically abandoning his new gig before even getting started.

A few things:

  1. It’s super shitty for the kids who committed to Geoff Collins, then kept their commitments with Diaz.
  2. The longtime coach at St. Joe’s Prep, Gabe Infante, literally just stepped down to take an assistant gig alongside Diaz at Temple.
  3. I don’t blame Diaz for taking the Miami gig. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime kind of thing and he already has connections there. Would you rather coach Temple or Miami?
  4. Temple will receive a four-million dollar buyout, so at least they get something out of this fiasco.

College football, man. It’s all about the coaches, who have free reign to do whatever they want while the players get jerked around instead.

What a world.

    The NCAA should just bust them down to FCS and be done with it.

    • Really. Go temple U December 31, 2018 at 9:44 am

    The timing this decision change is ugly. Temple suffers again. Maybe it’s time to push for the new football stadium again, ha, ha, ha.

    • Mikey mush said last week December 31, 2018 at 9:46 am

      That the stadium has zero chance of happening.

  • Temple is just fine December 31, 2018 at 9:42 am

    Four straight years of bowl appearances and winning records and recognition.
    If that’s a joke then we as alum will keep laughing. I’m sure you are a PSU junkie who has all the resources available to you and a loser coach who can’t win the big games.

    Gabe Infante is a better coach than Diaz. You would be nuts not to make him head coach.

    Yo stud, it’s free rein, not free reign. Learn this. It will save your copy editor some work.
