G Bishop Daniels leaves UM

Redshirt freshman guard Bishop Daniels has left the University of Miami men’s basketball program and the University, Coach Jim Larranaga announced Friday afternoon.

Daniels redshirted his freshman year and averaged 5.0 points, 2.0 steals and 1.0 assists in three games this season.

Confirmed: UM Canes DC Mark D'Onofrio has withdrawn his name from consideration for Temple head-coaching job

Mark D'Onofrio is staying.

I just got it confirmed from someone close to the situation. D'Onofrio has pulled his name from consideration for the head-coaching job at Temple.

So, it appears that if reports about D'Onofrio and other finalist Matt Rhule are correct, Rhule would be the favorite to replace departed Temple coach Steve Addazio, who left Temple to take the job at Boston College.

The UM staff, it seems, will be in tact for 2013 -- unless news materializes in the next few weeks or after the NFL season.

Reports: UM Canes DC D'Onofrio is finalist for Temple head-coaching job

    The Philadelphia Inquirer, citing "several sources,'' is reporting today that Hurricanes defensive coordinator Mark D'Onofrio is one of two finalists for the Temple head-coaching job.

    The other finalist: New York Giants assistant offensive line coach Matt Rhule, who reportedly interviewed Thursday night with incoming Temple president Neil D. Theobald, according to OwlScoop.

    D'Onofrio was the Temple defensive coordinator from 2006 to 2010, when current UM coach Al Golden was the head coach at Temple. Rhule also was an assistant under Golden.

   The Enquirer said D'Onofrio will meet with Theobald today.

   From OwlScoop: "Rhule's Giants are 8-5 and atop the NFC East standings. In two seasons as offensive coordinator in 2008 and 2009, Temple had 17 wins and a bowl appearance and a program single-season rushing yardage record in 2009. Rhule served as the co-offensive coordinator and tight ends coach under Addazio before he was hired by Giants head coach Tom Coughlin last March.

    Rhule and D'Onofrio played their college football at Penn State, and both played linebacker for the late Joe Paterno."
