[dropcap]M[/dropcap]iami has hired Hurlie Brown as running backs coach.
Brown served as the Hurricanes’ senior football operations coordinator for the past two years, working off the field with high school coaches and the recruiting process. Contract details are being finalized and an announcement is expected this week.
Prior to coming to Miami, Brown coached defensive backs at Lousisana-Lafayette from 2007-11 and at FIU from 2001-06.
Terry Richardson, Miami’s running backs coach the past three years, left last Thursday to join Gus Bradley’s Jacksonville Jaguars staff.
Brown was a standout safety for the Hurricanes from 1988-1991 and was part of two national championships.
Other finalists for the position were three prominent south Florida high school coaches; Miami Central’s Telly Lockette, Oakland Park- Northeast’s Donnell Bennett and Ft. Lauderdale- University’s Roger Harriott.
