The status of offensive coordinator Josh Gattis has created a lot of speculation over the last few weeks. There have been multiple reports that Gattis was not in Coral Gables during visits from high school recruits and transfers. The Miami Hurricanes hosted Mississippi transfer safety Tysheem Jackson on Tuesday.

The Miami basketball team sprinted to a 54-26 halftime lead en route to an 86-63 blowout of Florida State in Tallahassee on Tuesday night. Miami improves to 16-4, 7-3 in the ACC with the win and ended a nine-game losing streak versus FSU. Nijel Pack and Isaiah Wong led Miami with 18 points each.

If Jackson wants to transfer to Miami he has a rapid decision to make. The last day to enroll in classes at Miami for the spring semester is Wednesday. Johnson was a two-year starter at Mississippi. With the Miami Hurricanes Johnson would likely backup Kamren Kinchens and James Williams and play the star position.

The Miami coaching staff is expected to have more attrition during the 2023 off-season. The biggest speculation has surrounded Gattis. From the departure of former quarterbacks coach Frank Ponce to Appalachian State as OC and QB coach to Gattis not meeting with visitors a change is expected for Miami.

One of the biggest theories centers around a new OC becoming the Miami Hurricanes OC and QB coach. Gattis as OC and wide receivers coach was an unusual setup for Miami. Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reported some officials in the Hurricanes athletic department do not know if Gattis will remain on the football staff.

Another official told Jackson that he would be surprised if Gattis remains with Miami. Jackson reported via CaneSport that Gattis is searching for another job. That is consistent with multiple other outlets. Gattis has a huge buyout and one potential development per CaneSports is that Gattis remains Miami WR coach, but not OC.
