CORAL GABLES, Fla. – First the Miami Hurricanes landed a new head coach, and it appears they have now zeroed in on their next athletic director.

According to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald, Clemson University AD Dan Radakovich has agreed take on the same role for his alma mater, the University of Miami.

Radakovich had been widely viewed as Miami’s top choice for the job.

Earlier this week, the Hurricanes made a huge splash by hiring Mario Cristobal as the team’s new head coach.

The moves come as the school has made clear a new commitment to bringing the football program back to glory.

A UM graduate, Radakovich previously earned a master’s degree in business administration from Miami in 1982.

The following year, Radakovich began his career in athletic administration with the Hurricanes.

The school has yet to formally announce the move.
