CORAL GABLES, Fla. – The Miami Hurricanes coordinator hunt is over.

According to multiple reports, Miami will name Houston’s Shannon Dawson their new offensive coordinator and quarterback coach.

He will replace Josh Gattis, who lasted just one season at Miami.

Dawson has been with Houston for the past four seasons.

He previously coached at West Virginia, Kentucky, and Southern Miss.

Miami also has a new defensive coordinator.

Last week, Mario Cristobal hired Lance Guidry to run the defense.

Miami finished last season with a 5-7 record and did not qualify for a bowl game.
