The Miami Hurricanes fired head coach Al Golden on Sunday after the team’s school worse 58-0 loss to Clemson on Saturday and a 4-3 start to the season. Larry Scott is currently the team’s interim coach, but some interesting names have surfaced in regards to the problem.

Despite not having any formal coaching experience, former Miami All-American Ed Reed said he’d listen if The U came calling.

“The NBA did it with Jason Kidd. I even thought about it. They can put my name in the mix for a coaching job or something like that. It seems like the partnership between players and coaches, the head coach’s job is to manage everybody, manage the game, and help the offensive and defensive coordinators make the best decisions. And they help him do the same thing,” Reed said. “I haven’t received a call from a 305 (area code) number. I would definitely listen, would go and talk and want to know what they’re looking to do. I would entertain it. I’m at a different place in my life right now, working out, training, coaching from afar, helping guys out, high school, college and pro alike. I definitely would entertain it.”

Reed made the comments Monday on The Rich Eisen Show in regards to whether a lengthy resume of experience should really be necessary. Either way, Reed said former Hurricanes stars want in on the decision-making process, and revival of the program.

“We’ve definitely got to get some real detailed coaching in there, from my view. It just looks like technique-wise, we’re a little behind,” Reed said. “… You might want to consider the thoughts of some players that played the game, that made an impact, that want to be involved around there. We definitely need some coaches that can understand the players, relate to the players, and coach them well. It seems like there was a disconnection schematically, just talking football, from what I’ve seen. Maybe the kids weren’t taught as well, or weren’t taking to the teaching that well. That seemed to be a problem.”

Hey it’s not the NBA and Reed isn’t Jason Kidd, but any ex-player can be a leader of men without formal experience, it has to be Ed Reed right? Any potential 'Canes recruit wondering how Reed feels about Miami should check out this video.
