Good morning OBB. This is your Wednesday morning wake up call. We have to say goodbye to a beloved goat this morning and goodbyes are never easy. The Miami Hurricanes first staff change was none other than a Miami legend. Should we head on over to Greentree? #LETSGO! Wake up!
Former University of Miami and NFL star Ed Reed will be the 16th head football coach of Bethune-Cookman University. The school has announced through it’s social media that it has entered an agreement with the Pro Football Hall of Famer. Reed served as a Senior Football Advisor (Chief of Staff) to his alma mater for the past three seasons.
This would be Reed’s first head coaching gig however he did serve as an assistant defensive backs coach for the Buffalo Bills in 2016. “Ed is one of the best to ever wear a Miami Hurricanes uniform and he has served as a great mentor to our student-athletes the past three years. He will do a tremendous job leading the Wildcats.’ said Miami Athletic Director Dan Radakovich
Reed is set to take over the program from Terry Sims who was fired after a 2-9 record last season. Sims served as the Wildcats head coach for seven seasons and finished with an overall record of 38-39. The Wildcats look to bolster their standings in the SWAC adding the former 24th overall pick and 2002 first round pick of the Baltimore Ravens.
“Maybe that’ll start the staff changes.”
“Going the Deion route, can’t blame him.”
“They told Reed Gattis is back and he said F*ck this I’m out.” –John Michaels
Wake Forest quarterback Sam Hartman intends to enter the NCAA portal and Notre Dame is the expected landing spot for Hartman. Notre Dame fans were hoping for Tyler Van Dyke to emerge as the transfer target claiming that Miami was not the best spot for him. Despite the down 2022 season which was plagued with injuries, Van Dyke finished 14th in passing yards per game and was 11th in QBR in 2021.
Although initial reports stated that Van Dyke would be back at the University of Miami next season, offensive changes still need to happen. The simple question was posed what would Van Dyke’s Heisman chances look like if he was in a much more advantageous system. The Hurricanes at one point last season went 25 drives at home without scoring a touchdown.
“Our offense was on Cuban time.”

Jefferey M’ba has hit the portal per his Instagram account. M’ba was the number one JUCO player in the country in 2022 and would definitely fit a need at defensive tackle. After the departure of FSU bound Darrell Jackson the Hurricanes are in need of an interior lineman who can factor.
The 6-6 305 pound M’ba was recruited my Mario Cristobal at Oregon and played last season at Auburn. The Miami Hurricanes employ a multiple front defense and are in need of someone who can anchor the defensive tackle position especially in odd man fronts. In his post game early signing day press conference, Cristobal said interior lineman was something he would aggressively target.
“That’s our war daddy that I mentioned previously.” – Leeds
