Manny should look into bring Telly Lockette on board as an analyst or something ... it's a hire that could pay dividends down here with his connections to help lock up more of the Dade county kids
Really struggling to understand how all of you think the athletic department has all this money that they just don't want to use. Do you understand the difference between a public school and a private school?

Everyone's screaming why we haven't hired Highsmith. Maybe it's because we need to find an extra few hundred thousand dollars a year for a position we were paying a D-line coach to do.

He’s cheap. We can definitely sign him.

Yeah if they can't get him they should hire (_ insert random black guy from general South Florida area_) cause THAT guy would really cure Miami's recruiting issues

Miami can afford it, no amount of justifying or trying to explain it away will change that. We're not dirt poor or flat broke.

No we're not Texas or TAMU, but we're not New Mexico either, we can afford to hire a guy like Telly Lockette.

And the Highsmith hold up is not financial, Marcus Lemonis has made it clear he would pay Zo's salary out of his own pocket if need be.

BOT agreed to pay Highsmith for at least 2 years

We're always that one guy away from perfection.

Lockette's offenses as a HS coach were potent. If he's available, bring his tail back SFL. If Lash is the goods and Telly wants to have an upwardly mobile career, this might be a great move for his future.

Ppl forget that ACCN check is 10Ms that is pretty much found money. Old boy should use all that financial acumen to realize that investing an extra 2M a year could turn that 10 into more every year. And that’s on top whatever they already committed to spending b4 that 10M was there

1. This hire would make sense
2. Manuela isn’t that smart.
I think cuz is plenty smart enough but pride kills us all. And it’s like moving out ya parents house. U might be an adult in name but not in understanding.
Welcome to the grown up table manny

We could also replace Patke with Lockette and make things even easier financially. That'd be a win-win. Although I'd prefer Banda's ouster personally.
