PSU Coaching Search: Golden to stay at Miami

After rumors circulated for a week that he would take the vacant position at Penn State, University of Miami head coach Al Golden reaffirmed his commitment to the Hurricanes in a statement released Sunday afternoon.

“There has been much speculation concerning my future at the University of Miami,” Golden said in the statement. “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 Jan 15.”

Golden played tight end for Penn State from 1989-1991 and was a captain his senior year.   He was also a linebackers coach and recruiting coordinator under Joe Paterno in 2000.
