On Tuesday, former athletic director Blake James and the University of Miami decided to part ways, just 3 days after the Hurricanes stumbled on the road in a loss to the archrival Florida State Seminoles.

Since then, several candidates have surfaced as potential replacements to fill the vacancy. As reported by Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald, among those are Washington State AD Pat Chun, University of South Florida AD Michael Kelly, Florida Atlantic University AD Brian White, former Louisville AD Tom Jurich, and University of Miami alums Gino Torretta and Alonzo Highsmith.

In a time where so much uncertainty surrounds the Hurricanes football program, one thing is certain - the next athletic director must be someone with experience, proven success, and someone who is dedicated to a championship culture – not just on the field of play, but off it as well to ensure sustained excellence.
