Hurlie Brown, who was a part of two UM football championships as a player, has been named the Miami Hurricanes’ next running backs coach, replacing Terry Richardson who accepted the same position with the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Brown played safety under Miami head coaches Jimmy Johnson and Dennis Erickson, winning two National Championships (1989, 1991). Brown began his coaching career at Miami under Dennis Erickson in 1992 as a graduate assistant.
Though Brown does not have experience as a running backs coach, he has spent the past two seasons on Al Goldens‘ staff serving as senior football operations coordinator.
In 1992, Brown was signed by the Washington Redskins as a free agent and signed with the San Francisco 49ers in 1993. His career in the NFL was minimal, however, Brown spent time bouncing around the CFL from 1993-97.
