ACC's lunchtime links: Miami AD in the dark?

Posted by ESPN.com's Heather Dinich

Is Miami athletic director Kirby Hocutt out of the loop? ADs don't usually like surprises, and it doesn't sound like Hocutt was aware of Oklahoma State's interest in defensive coordinator Bill Young.

"If something were close to happening, I'm sure I would have spoken to Randy (Shannon) about it by now," Hocutt told Jorge Milian of the Palm Beach Post.

How is Hocutt supposed to help sweeten the pot for Young to stay if he doesn't even know Young is thinking about leaving?
