Miami athletic director Blake James issued a vote of confidence for head coach Al Golden.
Getting a public vote of confidence after your first game of the season is like your wife confiding to friends that your one-month-old marriage has "been more work than I thought it'd be." Golden, in his fourth season guiding the Hurricanes, owns a 22-16 record. In a seemingly decent opening-game matchup against a Louisville squad breaking in a new quarterback and playing shorthanded, the Hurricanes got drilled. That prompted James to say that Golden is "the perfect person for this job," adding: "We are going to be a better team at the end of this year than we were at the start of this year. We're going to be a better team at the end of this year than we were last year, and we're going to continue to get better each year." Miami has games against Nebraska, Virginia Tech, North Carolina and Florida State upcoming on the schedule. Sep 4 - 8:08 PM

Miami head coach Al Golden released a statement saying he is committed to the school's football program.

"There has been much speculation concerning my future at the University of Miami," Golden said. "While I am flattered that our progress at The U during an extremely difficult period of time is recognized, I am also appreciative of just what we have here at UM and I am not a candidate for another position." Penn State will move on to their next candidate, but Golden's ability to have success under NCAA restrictions was likely attractive to Nittany Lions' officials.

ESPN's Brett McMurphy reports Miami HC Al Golden is meeting with Penn State officials this weekend.

There was plenty of buzz on Friday that stated Golden had or would accept the Penn State opening, but that has quieted a bit. His travel plans were delayed due to weather, however, news should break by the end of the weekend. Golden took over a troubled program in Miami and has done a fairly solid job. Penn State certainly thinks he can work under the restrictions they are facing.

Miami coach Al Golden was named the 2013 Lombardi Award winner for Excellence in Coaching.

Golden led the Hurricanes through the uncertainty of an NCAA investigation for two seasons and just went 9-3 in his third campaign. "I humbly dedicate this to the 2013 Miami Hurricanes," Golden said. "They overcame a lot adversity over the last three years and in so doing, taught us a lot about unity, a lot about perseverance, a lot about leadership itself and maybe perhaps overall, a lot about class."
