Well, BSDers, looks like we're all out of luck.

In a statement just released by the University of Miami athletic department, Al Golden has reaffirmed his commitment to the Hurricane football program:

"There has been much speculation concerning my future at the University of Miami. While I am flattered that our progress at The U during an extremely difficult period of time is recognized, I am also appreciative of just what we have here at UM and I am not a candidate for another position. We are eager to welcome our student athletes back to campus next week and visit with prospective student-athletes and their families beginning January 15."

Paging James Franklin, anyone?
