CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) - Miami opened spring football practice on Saturday, and Hurricanes coach Al Golden says his team was largely able to pick up where it left off at the end of last season.
The Hurricanes worked out for about two hours, with three new assistant coaches on the field in offensive coordinator James Coley, tight ends coach Larry Scott and running backs coach Hurlie Brown.
Golden says the Hurricanes had a ``good tempo ... good start.''
Miami did not go to a bowl game in 2012 after a second-straight season of self-imposed sanctions because of the NCAA investigation into the Hurricanes' athletic department. The Hurricanes finished 7-5 last season and, if they had chosen to go to postseason play, would have represented the Coastal Division in the Atlantic Coast Conference title game.
