I think the criticism is unfounded and would welcome him back with open arms.
1. He gets a pay raise, lower cost of living, slightly bigger stepping stone (at the moment). Can't blame him.
2. Learns what a championship caliber program looks like from the best in the biz
3. If he's hired to replace golden he can bring in his own staff without being tied to goldens guys

1. If hired here, he'd leave the first time an NFL/college team offered him more money.
2. If I were a parent, I'd never trust another word he said. He's a snake.
3. As far as I'm concerned, his Cane card has been revoked. Best of luck to him.
Golden is better then Jimbo... I feared it was true. He is going to hoist a crystal ball there - fsufsu
Please refer to this thread: http://miami.247sports.com/Board/92/Congrats-to-Cristobal-on-his-new-job-16902804/1
Cant agree wih everything you say first 2 are pretty much dead on but the Cane card i wont go tat far with it because family i mst important to him we gotta be real now........... if we ever hear he is negatively recruiting against us then his card is gone
Best believe he will be. You might not hear it though.
Ilovelamp, I got mass love for ya but that was kind of harsh! Ask yourself, can you really blame him? When I first heard he news, I was hurt but after I sat back and thought this thing through, Nick Saban called him for a position on his staff. It's not about the money because if that were the case, he be coaching at Rutgers or even Pittsburgh for that matter! Two, you, myself and everyone else in this thread knows he loves the U so that's not the issue here! You have a chance to learn from the best and I bet that this was a hard decision for him to make! In about five to ten years if coach decides to leave, you don't think that he will be in consideration for the job? I know people are pissed off but I also think that it's more of emotions then just sitting back and thinking about the move he made from a professional standpoint!
I cant go that far bruh maybe its just me tkng family that seriously so i wouldve done damn near everything he did nd id be diehard cane and never talk bd about the team so i cant say he will because if we were in his spot idk how many would really say no
He won 2 championships in Miami so I'm not sure what he going to learn besides working for a championship team right now instead of building a champion here at his alma mater . The timing is terrible why take the job at Miami knowing full well you would interview let alone take another job in your 1st year
I agree with Lamp...he is dead to me. Too many young and up and comers every year. What did he really do on his own? Without Ty Hilton, this guy was Really mediocre at best. He coached under Schiano and is a position coach nothing more. The man was fired by FIU not Florida or USC. FIU?! I am sure he was hurt by the Coley hiring.

What about Randy Shannon who got a contract extension then got got fired in 4 seasons and there's no doubt he is a cane thru and thru
Wink.. I don't mind a coach leaving for a better opportunity. Let's be honest, we knew he would. My issue is how he went about doing it. Former Cane or not, I think he showed his true colors today. He is all about Mario Cristobal. That's fine but don't think for a second that kind of character just changes. He'd leave Miami again the first time an NFL team came calling. I will never want him back. Too many good HC's out there who'd appreciate the opportunity even more. JMO
cristobal don't owe nobody nothing in miami and will always be a cane no matter what... lol at ITU posters
Only the greats play here
He stayed at FIU instead of getting a better opportunity at a better school........ so that makes this situation iffy i mean unless he loved FIU way more then UM then i cant say he isnt loyal at least to a certain extent
All I'm saying is he will be brutally truthful & probably even stretch the truth a bit. It's just how it goes.
"Miami is in big trouble with the NCAA. The ACC is a dying conference. AG couldn't even win the MAC. Look at Cooper leaving town, go 7-5 or win the NC. Do you want to play in front of 20k or 100k?" Etc...
He stayed at FIU to hold out forba better job opportunity. (SEC school) Don't think for a second that was loyalty.. It was strategy.
Might stay a cane in your book... Not mine.
Then he wouldve waited a decade no SEC school was hiring him name 1 SEC coach wo go hired withot SEC experience? He damn sure knew he wasnt getting that and he wouldve gota pay raise at another school and if he went somewhere and dd well then he wold ge a SEC job maybe but be real he wasnt waiting for that
Football is football it dont change conference to conference TN hires Dooley and their current HC with no SEC experience. I do agree with Lamp here it was just a strategic move and a very foolish 1 by thinking Pitt or Rutgers is beneath him
Off the top of my head: James Franklin, Mark Stoops, Butch Jones, Urban Meyer (previously), Brett Bielema, Hugh Freeze, Mark Richt, Les Miles
No SEC experience ever? Even if some didnt look at their coaching record and schools coached at before and compare it to Mario and you tell me if you would hire him
To my knowledge, not a single bit. That's more than half the coaches btw. Franklin was a HCIW at Maryland, Freeze best coaching gig was HC at Arky St, Meyer was Utah, Stoops was DC at FSU, Jones was HC at Cincy, Richt was OC at FSU, etc.
Your logic is flawed, I promise. Cristobal was an up and coming name like AG was. He built a bowl winning program from scratch, same as AG. Win & you'll get your shot. (See: Freeze)

New era. Game is always changing. This will be great for him, and us if we get him to replace golden. I'm not upset in the least. Disappointed, yes. Upset? No.
I'm not upset. I'll just never respect him again.
The SEC is a new era? When the hell that happened? Of course the game changes but it ain't different variations from conference to conference. As far as I'm concerned the SEC got the blueprint from Miami
