UC Head Coach Tommy Tuberville was on the Miami staff from 1986-93 first as the defensive line and linebackers coach and later as defensive coordinator (1993). While serving on the staffs of Jimmy Johnson and Dennis Erickson, Tuberville helped coach Miami to three national titles, an 87-9 record and nine-straight new year's day bowl appearances.

UC offensive coordinator Eddie Gran also has extensive Florida ties, serving as a graduate assistant at Miami from 1990-91, coaching at Florida State (2010-12) and spending the better part of two decades with Miami and greater South Florida as his primary recruiting areas.
