"From the beginning of this process, one candidate stood out above the rest as the right fit for the University of Miami," said director of athletics Kirby Hocutt. "We are proud to welcome al Golden to The U. His desire, leadership, communications skills and preparedness stood above the rest, and he is the right man to meet the championship expectations of this program."

The Miami Herald had reported that Trestman was one of three candidates, along with Golden and Randy Edsall, in the running for the post.
