The Miami Hurricanes are a member of the Atlantic Coast Conference, fielding 17.5 (NCAA standards) varsity teams. The Hurricanes began playing basketball in 1926 but suspending play from 1971-1985. Miami has made the NCAA tournament seven times, advancing to the Sweet 16 twice. In those seasons (2000 and 2013), the Hurricanes won conference championships. Current head coach Jim Larranaga took over the basketball program in 2011 after having so much success at George Mason. Larranaga has tallied a 91-49 record in four seasons at Miami and has made the NCAA tournament once and the NIT twice. The Hurricanes won their first eight games of the season, earning Miami a poll ranking for the first time since the 2012-13 season. However, Miami struggled in conference play, winning just 10 of 18 conference games and finishing sixth in the ACC. Their struggle down the stretch kept them out of the NCAA tournament. However, with a No. 2 seed in the NIT, the Hurricanes won four NIT games, landing them in the NIT championship game. The Hurricanes lost a heartbreaker, 66-64 in overtime at the hands of Stanford. Despite the loss, Larranaga has the Hurricanes headed in the right direction after previous head coach Frank Haith left the program in shambles with the NCAA investigating Haith for wrongdoings. The Miami baseball team is one of the most successful programs in the NCAA. The Hurricanes have four national championships (1982, 1985, 1999 and 2001) and have 24 College World Series appearances since 1974. The Hurricanes also have a record 43-consecutive appearances in the NCAA regionals. Miami’s success came under the late Ron Fraser, who amassed a 1,271-438-9 record at Miami. Fraser retired after the 1992 season, leading the Hurricanes to their 12th College World Series. Jim Morris was hired as the new head coach of the Hurricanes in 1993. Since then, Morris has accumulated 980 wins and in 2015, led Miami to the College World Series for the 12th time in his tenure. In his first six seasons at Miami, he brought the Hurricanes to the College World Series each year, an NCAA record. Miami is most known for their success on the gridiron. The Hurricanes have five Division-I national football championships (1983, 1987, 1989, 1991 and 2001), which ranks fourth all-time behind Notre Dame, Oklahoma and Alabama. Miami has produced two Heisman trophy winners, Gino Torretta (1992) and Vinny Testaverde (1986). Five Miami Hurricane alumni are in the Pro Football Hall of Fame including Warren Sapp, Michael Irvin, Jim Kelly, Cortez Kennedy, Jim Otto and Ted Hendricks. Miami has also produced two Super Bowl MVPs (Ottis Anderson and Ray Lewis) and consistently puts more players in the NFL than just about any other college football program. The Hurricanes have an all-time record of 596-342-19 with a 18-18 bowl record and nine conference titles. Current head coach Al Golden took over the program in 2011 and has a 28-22 record in four seasons with two bowl game appearances.
