Kirby Hocutt is resigning as Miami's
athletic director to take the same job at Texas Tech.
Miami President Donna Shalala announced the move Friday, saying
she was "deeply disappointed." Hocutt did not return a call or
text message seeking comment.
The move comes less than three months after Hocutt fired Randy
Shannon and hired Al Golden to coach the Hurricanes' football team,
and less than two weeks after Hocutt said basketball coach Frank
Haith would remain at Miami at least one more year.
Hocutt spent 2½ years at Miami. At Texas Tech, he'll replace the
retiring Gerald Myers.
