Miami has it's OC. Being reported that Jedd Fisch, Seahawks QB coach, has taken the job. Here is a link to the Minnesota SB site's breakdown of the guy when he became their OC. He stayed there for a year before jumping back to the NFL. The one year he was with the Gophers the offense was terrible, but most articles say the system he brought in was complex and was expected to pay dividends the second year. Problem was he didn't stay to see that second year. Instead he left town to coach in Seattle.That was the only time in his career he called plays. He has been in the pros the majority of his career so we really have no idea if he can recruit or not.
My take on the hire? Ultimately it is a wait and see thing of course, but I don't expect it to be great. He hasn't developed a big time QB, as he stopped being the Ravens QB coach the year before Flacco showed up. He coached WRs at Baltimore and Denver but there is no WR he can take credut for creating at those stops either (Marshall predates him showing up at Denver). On the plus side, the guy has worked under some bright coaches (Carroll, Shannahan, and Billick) but that is his only claim to fame. If he can simplify his system, deal with the difference in practice time between the NFL and college and put in the work on the trail this could be a good hire. But those are 3 big ifs. I also think he could be attempting to use the UM job as an addition for OC jobs in the NFL. All young assistants are looking to move up though, so this is only a problem if he finds a new opening he likes in the next 2-3 years. Looking at his career I would expect him to be back in the NFL as soon as he finds a spot he likes.
I don't think this hire means the Cane offense will be complete garbage next year though. With their backfield if they get quality line play they can just run it at several ACC teams and beat them with limited passing. But Miami will have to play 3 of the top defenses in the ACC next year in Va Tech, UNC and FSU, so running it down their throats and then coming with the PA pass will not be an option.
