Report: Miami targeting Georgia DB coach for similar role
Miami is going after Georgia assistant Jahmile Addae for its defensive backs job, according to a report.
That’s per The Athletic’s Bruce Feldman, who notes that Addae is originally from Florida. He played at West Virginia and has been a Power 5 defensive backs coach since the 2016 season.

Prior to arriving at Georgia, Addae was the defensive backs coach at West Virginia, Minnesota and Arizona. He’s also spent time with Michigan and Cincinnati in his coaching career.
Addae would be replacing Tavaris Robinson, who left Miami to pursue the vacant DB coach job at Alabama.
If Miami is able to land Addae, it would be another major addition to Mario Cristobal’s coaching staff. The Canes have added defensive coordinator Kevin Steele and offensive coordinator Josh Gattis in recent days.
Additions like this are an indication that Miami’s administration is willing to increase its financial investment in the Hurricanes’ football program.
Miami’s spring game is on April 16.
