Miami is a horrible basketball program and I can't see larranega leaving at this age
I'm confused with this move. Why would Miami go out and hire a 61 year old coach? I never completely understood why they wouldn't atleast give Frank Martin a call. He seemed to have interest in Miami since he did grow up their. If I was a Miami fan, I'd rather even have Rob Jeter because atleast he is young at the age of 41.

I agree with you. I dont think it makes much sense for Miami.
I love it ! haha
Apparently he had a great relationship with his former ad but he retired. Still an odd hire by Miami

And the coaches you mentioned are amongst the all time greats. All the time they are asked about retirement. Larranaga is probably getting asked about retirement at his introduction press conference. Miami(Fl) is not a destination job though, so does it really matter how old he is? Any good young coach they brought it would of been gone after five years if they were any good.
Coach K has also been at Duke since 1980
Jim Calhoun has been the coach at Uconn since 1986
Jim Boeheim has been the coach at Syrcasue since 1976
Rick Pitino has been at Louisville since 2001 and UK before that
So while he is only 61 the other have been at major universities for a very long time.
This is a really good hire for Miami imo. Who the heck else are they supposed to get? Donnie Jones or some other clown? Larranaga can coach, and was affordable and willing to move to Miami which is by no means an attractive job.
