CanesInSight Exclusive - Staff Changes

Peter Ariz
With fall practice set to begin this weekend for the University of Miami, there will be a few major staff changes going into effect over the next couple of days. CanesInSight reported last night that Linebackers Coach Micheal Barrow would be stepping down from his role. Barrow had been at Miami as a coach since 2007 when he was hired by Randy Shannon and was retained by Al Golden in 2010. We are told that his resignation is family-related.

This morning, CanesInSight has learned that staff shuffling will take place in order fill the position left in Barrow's absence. Current RB Hurlie Brown is slated to shift over to the LB spot, current Miami staffer and high school football legend Tim "Ice" Harris will coach running backs, and former Miami WR and current University School wide receivers coach Kevin Beard will step into Ice Harris' role in football ops.

There were some questions when Harris was hired a few months back about whether he could be a position coach without a degree, but CanesInSight has been told that there is a clause in Harris contract that mandates he finish his degree by a certain date. The details have been worked out.

Stay tuned on CanesInSight for more on this story as it develops, but that is the latest.

Prayers to Coach Barrow, hope his mother makes it.
 
Ice Harris will be unleashed in S.Florida now.

Hide your kids, hide your wives.

Is that your version of "Stay classy San Diego"?
 
Is ice even qualified for this outside of recruiting?
 
Godspeed to Barrow and prayers sent to his family for his ailing mother.

Yes, 100%. The guy is an incredible coach. Built one of the greatest TEAMS in high school football history. Runs a tight ship, commands respect from his players,
 
Well now the LB's cover skills will improve! But Damn talk about having a break glass incase of emergency contingency plan already in place. Al is making moves with the vision of a fortune 50 CEO that has the luck of the Irish.

Go Canes

Bringing in Kevin Beard definitely solidifies RB Scarlett and WR Bruce while giving UM a stronger presence in Broward County. Now we just need to win this season.

Go Canes

Sorry to see Coach Borrow go. "Family issues" is the canned response, so I wonder what's the real reason. Seems odd he would do this 4 days prior to camp opening. Looking at the positives, feel good about Hurlie assuming the LB coaching and local recruiting can only be bolstered with Kevin Beard coming on board.
 
Prayers sent Mike Barrow and his family.

Ice should pay dividends on the recruiting trail for sure. How is Hurlie as a LB coach?

That is the real reason. His mother is ill.
