The Miami football program is 14th all-time among Power Conference programs plus Notre Dame with a .629 winning percentage. Miami has 663 wins, 388 losses and 19 ties in 98 seasons. Miami finished 8-0 in its inaugural football season in 1926. None of the teams Miami played in 1926 are FBS programs today.

Miami had Intermittent success until Howard Schnellenberger was hired in 1979. The Hurricanes played in seven bowl games in the pre-Schnellenberger era. When he was hired Schnellenberger promised a national championship by the fifth season. Schellenberger delivered when Miami was 11-1 in 1983 and won the national championship.

Jimmy Johnson succeeded Schnellenberger in 1984 and led Miami to an 8-5 record. Miami began a dominant run in 1985. Miami was 90-8 from 1985 through 1992, with three national championships and two other bowl games where wins would have resulted in national titles. Miami "slipped" to 19-5 in 1993 and 1994.

Dennis Erickson led Miami from 1989 through 1994. Miami won their third and fourth national titles during the Erickson era. Butch Davis took over for Erickson and led the Hurricanes to a 51-20 record in six seasons. Davis set the foundation for the dominant Miami teams of the early 2000s.

Miami finished 11-1 during Davis' last season in 2000. The Hurricanes won their last 10 games in 2000. That began a 34-game winning streak that did not *end until the 2003 Fiesta Bowl. Only a dubious pass interference call prevented Miami from winning consecutive championships in 2001 and 2002.

After finishing 35-3 in its first three seasons under Larry Coker in the Big East from 2001–2003, Miami was 25-9 during his final three seasons, which were the Hurricanes' first three years in the ACC. Coker was fired following a 7-6 season in 2006. Miami has been a mediocre program since Coker's dismissal.

A 10-3 season under Mark Richt in 2017 is the only year the Hurricanes have had double-digit wins since 2003. Miami began the 2017 season with 10 straight wins (part of a 15-game win streak dating to 2016) and was ranked as high as second in the College Football Playoff poll. Miami lost its final three games in 2017.

Miami ranks second among the big three in Florida. Florida is third and Florida State first among the big three teams in the Sunshine State. Florida is 15th all-time among Power Conference programs with a .626 winning percentage, 758 wins, 445 losses and 40 ties.
