Miami Hurricanes head football coach Al Golden released a statement on Sunday, reaffirming his commitment to the University of Miami:
"There has been much speculation concerning my future at the University of Miami. While I am flattered that our progress at The U during an extremely difficult period of time is recognized, I am also appreciative of just what we have here at UM and I am not a candidate for another position. We are eager to welcome our student athletes back to campus next week and visit with prospective student-athletes and their families beginning January 15."
In his third season at Miami, Golden led the Hurricanes to a 9-4 record and their first bowl game since 2010.
