CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) -- Al Golden has arrived in Miami, already in the midst of a busy first day at his new job.
After arriving on a mid-afternoon flight, Golden has met university president Donna Shalala, along with his new players -- most of whom hadn't heard of the former Temple coach before the Hurricanes hired him on Sunday.
Miami athletic director Kirby Hocutt says Golden was the top choice as soon as their first interview in New York ended early last week. Hocutt and Golden subsequently met in Philadelphia, then had several phone conversations, all culminating in an agreement on a five-year contract.
