CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) -- The Donald has a message for The U: Hire Mike Leach.

Donald Trump sent a letter to University of Miami president Donna Shalala this week, suggesting the Hurricanes hire the former Texas Tech coach to lead their football program.

Trump wrote the note on a copy of The Palm Beach Post's Sunday sports section, scrawling it over the newspaper's story announcing Randy Shannon's firing.

University officials confirmed the authenticity of the note Wednesday.

"You made a big mistake when you did not take my advice and hire Mike Leach of Texas Tech ... and you can now get him for the right price," Trump wrote to Shalala.

Trump lobbied Miami to hire Leach in 2006, when they ultimately chose Shannon.
