MORGANTOWN, West Virginia — The West Virginia Mountaineers are off to a 4-1 start and are currently in 2nd place in the Big 12 Conference, and with success will come coaching rumors.
One such rumor that has popped up this morning is that the Miami Hurricanes could potentially be interested in West Virginia head coach Neal Brown. Miami suffered a humiliating loss yesterday after their head coach Mario Cristobal didn’t take a kneel with 30 seconds left and automatically win the game. Instead, they ran the ball and fumbled. Their opponent, Georgia Tech, marched 75 yards down the field in 2 plays and won the game.
According to the rumor posted by RedditCFB, “Miami is growing frustrated with Cristobal’s decision-making, and has its sights set on WVU head coach Kneel Brown.”
Neal Brown, who is in his 5th season at West Virginia, is now 26-26 overall in Morgantown. This is clearly an amusing take on Cristobal not being willing to kneel, but if the Mountaineers continue to play well this season, don’t be surprised to see more serious rumors come up about Brown leaving the program.
While attempting to run out the clock, No. 17 Miami fumbled, then gave up a 44-yard TD to Georgia Tech as time expired.
Miami could have taken a knee on 3rd and 4th down.
Instead, the Yellowjackets upset the Hurricanes 23-20.
