Report: Mark D'Onofrio to be Named Hurricanes' Defensive Coordinator
D'Onofrio was considered the main candidate to replace Golden at Temple, but the school has announced a national search.
"Sources close to the situation said D'Onofrio was not offered the job, won't be part of the search and appears likely to join Golden in Miami," reports the Philadelphia Daily News.
D'Onofio is a close friend of Golden's, and a former teammate at Penn State. He seems to be a respectable replacement for current dc John Lovett.
The 'Canes may have had the second best passing defense in the NCAA this year, but Temple sat at a respectable 14, and far outranked the 'Canes in rushing defense, and slightly in scoring defense.
