Al Golden and Jedd Fisch statements regarding Jedd leaving the Miami Hurricanes

Jedd Fisch statement:

“I want to thank President [Donna] Shalala, Athletic Director Blake James, Coach [Al] Golden, the coaching staff and all of the incredible student-athletes that I have come in contact with since joining the program [in] January 2011.  There are 32 NFL Offensive Coordinator jobs and the opportunity to become the Jacksonville Jaguars Offensive Coordinator this year was based on all of the successes our program has had in the past two years.  I am so excited to watch the Miami Hurricane and Jacksonville Jaguar football teams compete for and win championships this year and the years to come.  There is no doubt that this program is one of the premiere in the country and I am grateful that I can always say I am part of the Hurricane Family.”


Al Golden statement:

"It's been a great week for the University of Miami and the NFL as evidenced by the hires of Marc Trestman (Chicago Bears) and Rob Chudzinski (Cleveland Browns) as head coaches, having the most former players participating in the conference championship games Sunday and now the hiring of Jedd Fisch as the offensive coordinator with the Jacksonville Jaguars.  We are happy for Jedd and his family.  Jedd has done a great job for us here at the University of Miami and we are proud of the contributions he made to our program over the past two seasons.  We wish him and amber and the Jacksonville Jaguars the best of luck for years to come."
