Miami hires Larry Scott as TEs coach

Miami has hired Larry Scott as tight ends coach, a move that

comes with the Hurricanes opening spring practice this coming

weekend.

Scott has been an offensive assistant at South Florida since

2005, including four seasons as the Bulls’ tight ends coach. Scott

also played for the Bulls, and was part of the program’s first

recruiting class in 1996.

There were indications over the weekend that he would stay with

the Bulls, before striking the Miami deal.

At Miami, Scott will replace Mario Cristobal, who was to have

coached the Hurricanes’ tight ends in 2013 before getting hired to

be the offensive line coach at Alabama. Cristobal would have also

held the title of associate head coach with the Hurricanes, before

leaving six weeks into the job.
