Al Golden was just on WQAM radio: Doesn't sound like he's making changes in his coaching staff

University of Miami coach Al Golden was just on WQAM with Joe Rose.

Basically, he didn't answer any questions about the Penn State job and he spent nearly 30 minutes talking about statistical trends and the improvements Miami made on offense and defense.

He said the worst part of UM's game has been third-down conversions offensively and defensively, the pass rush, time of possession (which relates to conversion problem).

The big thing we got out of this: Golden seems like he's not going to make many, if any, changes on the coaching staff. 

He was asked about Mark D'Onofrio and the first thing he said is "The trend right now is positive.''

Then he compared numbers from 2012 to 2013, and covered the improvements Miami made. He also talked about what needs to be improved.

He never talked specifically about any of his coaches.

So, Canes fans, I do not know this for a fact, as Al will be meeting with his coaching staff today and I can't predict the future, but it's pretty clear, again, that most coaches at the very least -- and almost definitely D'Onofrio is my guess -- will be returning.

Stay tuned, please.

I will start transcribing some quotes for you now and posting them on blog.
