Miami AD Blake James Issues Statement After Embarrassing Bowl Performance

University of Miami athletic director Blake James issued a statement following the Hurricanes embarrassing 14-0 loss to the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs in the Walk On's Independence Bowl on Thursday afternoon.

James asserted that Diaz was the right hire for the program, but suggested that the coaching staff could see turnover as Diaz evaluates the program.

With the loss, Miami finishes an up-and-down at 6-7.
