The Miami Hurricanes and the rest of the ACC learned the new scheduling model on Monday night with the additions of California, SMU and Stanford entering the conference in 2024. Head coach Mario Cristobal, defensive coordinator Lance Guidry and offensive coordinator Shannon Dawson had their weekly meeting with the media.

The Miami Hurricanes football team will play Florida State and Virginia Tech every year. Miami will play the other 14 ACC teams three times between 2024 and 2030. Miami hosts Duke, Florida State, Virginia Tech and Wake Forest in 2024. California, Georgia Tech, Louisville and Syracuse will host Miami in 2024.

Susan Miller Degnan of the Miami Herald wrote that “Miami to likely ‘burn’ No. 2 QB Emory Williams’ redshirt.” No. 3 Jacurri Brown might not play.” Miller Degnan quoted Dawson discussing the potential redshirts for Williams and Brown. Williams cannot play another game this season to maintain his redshirt.

Brown has not played in a game this season. With four 2023 Miami Hurricanes regular season games remaining, plus a bowl game, Brown can play in four of the last five games this year and maintain his redshirt. Miller Degnan also quoted Cristobal discussing the injuries Miami has had on the defensive line this season.
