Miami Hurricanes had a disappointing defeat against Louisiana Tech at the Independence Bowl last season. The Hurricanes witnessed their offensive coordinator fired right after their defeat. Miami will adapt to a new strategy this season as Rhett Lashlee is the new offensive coordinator coming straight from SMU. The Hurricanes will still need focus offensively this season. However, running back Cam’Rom Harris and Brevin Jordan are considered top players on their squad. The Hurricanes are looking towards D-Eriq King as their new quarterback and their advantage. King played previously for Houston Cougars before moving to Miami.
