Miami Fires Coach Randy Shannon

MIAMI (CBS4) –A person familiar with the decision tells The Associated Press that Miami fired coach Randy Shannon on Saturday, hours after the Hurricanes finished a 7-5 regular season.

The fate of all members of Shannon’s staff has not been determined, according to the person, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the university is not announcing the move until Sunday. Some, if not all, will remain for Miami’s bowl game.

Shannon received a four-year extension just before the start of the 2010 season. He was 28-22 in four seasons at Miami.

Miami athletic director Kirby Hocutt, who made the decision on Shannon’s fate, did not return calls and text messages seeking comment. Hocutt made the decision shortly after Miami lost to South Florida 23-20 in overtime on Saturday afternoon, in a game where only about 27,000 people filled the 73,000 seats at Sun Life Stadium.
