Miami AD Hocutt leaving Canes to head to Texas Tech


Kirby Hocutt resigned as Miami's athletic director to take the same job at Texas Tech, barely two months after hiring a new football coach and speaking about his desire to see the Hurricanes chase national prominence in all sports. Shalala is the biggest problem for the football team; but perhaps the Canes will now be able to get an AD who really is dedicated to getting the team back to par. Some possible candidates include Florida Atlantic's Craig Angelos and Western Kentucky's Ross Bjork, who was Miami's associate athletic director for external operations from 2003 through 2005.
