Plenty of Miami fans have been calling for head coach Al Golden to lose his job and that sentiment was presented loud and clear Friday night.
Ahead of the Hurricanes’ game at Florida Atlantic, a plane with a banner that read “Make Miami Great Again – Butch Davis 2016” flew overhead.
As captured by CBS4, Golden saw the banner. His reaction was what you’d expect.
Now in his fifth season with the program, Golden has just a 29-22 record (16-16 ACC) and has failed to win a bowl game during his tenure. The 2015 campaign got off to a good start last weekend with a 45-0 win over Bethune-Cookman.
Still, it appears that wasn’t enough to appease some fans.
This isn't the first time Golden has seen a banner calling for him to lose his job. Prior to last season's home game against Cincinnati, a "FIRE AL GOLDEN SAVE THE U" banner flew over Sun Life Stadium.
Butch Davis, this particular fan’s (or group of fans) preferred replacement for Golden, has not coached since 2011 when he was fired at North Carolina amid an NCAA investigation for academic dishonesty.
Davis was the head coach at Miami from 1995-2000 and registered a 51-20 record, including four bowl wins.
