A number of names have emerged as possible candidates to take over the Miami Hurricanes, including alumni like Mario Cristobal and Rob Chudzinski, and former 'Canes coach Butch Davis. While the prevailing thought is that Miami may struggle to draw a huge name, ESPN college football insider Brett McMurphy has heard that one prominent coach with South Florida ties may be interested: Texas head coach Charlie Strong.

Strong is only in year two at Texas, and seems to be picking up some steam after a very rocky start to 2015, so this would seem to be a hard sell. However, he knows the landscape well, spending a number of years as an assistant coach at Florida. Strong would probably be the splash hire that Miami fans may want, but it is hard to see him leaving Austin right now.
