Report: Clemson AD Dan Radakovich to take Miami job
Clemson’s Dan Radakovich is expected to be the next athletic director at Miami, according to a report.
That’s per the Oregonian’s John Canzano, who is reporting on the story as it relates to Miami’s pursuit of Oregon coach Mario Cristobal. Miami’s next athletic director is expected to pursue Cristobal if the Hurricanes decide to move on from current coach Manny Diaz.
I am told by a source that Clemson AD Dan Radakovich is going to Miami.
Next move will be decision on football coach.

Radakovich has been at Clemson since 2012. He’s presided over most of the Tigers’ football success in the Dabo Swinney era and has been instrumental in the building of that program.
He has an M.B.A from the University of Miami, so he’s familiar with the area and the Hurricanes’ program. He also worked in Miami’s athletic department from 1983-85. Prior to being the AD at Clemson, he served in that role for Georgia Tech from 2006-12.
If Radakovich does officially take the job, he’ll be tasked with making a decision on coach Diaz. He is 19-15 in nearly three seasons at the helm in Miami and has yet to seriously compete for a division title.
If Miami does open, it would be the fourth job to do so in this coaching cycle. Virginia Tech has already replaced Justin Fuente with Brent Pry. Virginia and Duke are currently conducting coaching searches.
It’s unclear who would be in position to replace Radakovich as Clemson’s athletic director. The Tigers would likely have multiple suitors from either within their own athletic department or around the region.
