Pre-seasonEdit

Following Miami's loss to Wisconsin in the Champs Sports Bowl, defensive lineman Allen Bailey, wide receiver Leonard Hankerson, and offensive lineman Orlando Franklin announced they would be returning for their senior seasons despite being considered possible candidates to enter the 2010 NFL Draft.[14]

In January it was reported that defensive line coach and recruiting coordinator Clint Hurtt would be leaving to go to the University of Louisville to become their new defensive line coach. On January 27, Miami hired Rick Petri to replace Hurtt as the defensive line coach.[15] Petri had previously coached at the University of Kentucky and had once coached the defensive line before at Miami between 1993 and 1995. Wide receivers coach Aubrey Hill was named the new recruiting coordinator.[16] In February, running backs coach Tommie Robinson left to take the same position for the Arizona Cardinals. He was replaced by Mike Cassano, who was previously running backs coach and recruiting coordinator at Florida International University, and had also coached at the University of Massachusetts Amherst under current Miami offensive coordinator Mark Whipple.[17] Head coach Randy Shannon later announced that defensive assistant Michael Barrow would be returning to his position of full-time linebackers coach after defensive coordinator John Lovett had filled the position during the 2009 season.[18][19] Barrow had been the linebackers coach in 2007 and 2008.

Miami began spring practice on February 23.[20] Quarterback Jacory Harris only participated in non-throwing drills while recovering from a shoulder injury.[21] Miami concluded spring practice with its spring game on March 27.[22]

In March 2010, the Miami track team signed Latwan Anderson, who was also a four-star defensive back recruit in football. Anderson will walk on to the football team in the fall. Anderson's track scholarship will convert to a football scholarship once he plays in his first football game.

On May 12, Randy Shannon signed a new four year contract with Miami.[23]

On July 9, The New York Times reported that offensive lineman Seantrel Henderson, one of the top high school recruits in the nation, would attend the University of Miami in August 2010, academically cleared to play the 2010 season. Henderson previously signed a national letter of intent to join the USC Trojans. Henderson signed with the Trojans after assurances from coach Lane Kiffin that the Trojans football program would not be hit with major penalties following infractions made in previous seasons. After the NCAA penalized the Trojans in June 2010, Henderson was released from his letter of intent, allowing him to freely sign with another football program.[24]

Senior defensive end Stephen Wesley was dismissed from the team at the end of July, reportedly for academic reasons.[25] On August 2, junior wide receiver Thearon Collier was also dismissed due to team violations.[26]

Miami began fall practice on August 5.[27]

Sun Bowl: Notre DameEdit

Shannon fired, Al Golden hiredEdit

Head coach Randy Shannon was fired the day following the South Florida loss.

On December 12, 2010, ESPN reported that Miami had offered the new head coaching position to former Temple University head coach Al Golden.[28]

In press-conference remarks upon his hiring on December 13, 2010, Golden emphasized the importance of the Miami legacy. "It's the most recognizable brand in college football," he said; "I go back to the former players that are here, the five national championships, 20 national award winners, countless All-Americans, incredible tradition; it's a dream job."[29]

Golden also announced after the bowl game that offensive coordinator Mark Whipple would not be retained and his replacement could come from the NFL.[30]
