Golden's Hurricanes ready for start of spring ball

By  | 

CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) -- In Miami coach Al Golden's mind, the Hurricanes will have no returning starters on the field when spring practice starts Saturday.
The way he sees it, every job is open.
With good reason. It's a new era for the Hurricanes, who went 7-6 last season after sputtering down the stretch and once again falling short in the Atlantic Coast Conference. Golden is promising to change the way Miami does certain things, and sees the 15 practices of the spring session as vital building blocks.
Players say they're embracing the philosophy of their first-year coach, who replaced Randy Shannon late last year.
