The Univeristy of Miami football has been in disarray for the last decade.

The Hurricanes have gone 13-13 in the past two seasons, a steep drop for a program who made three consecutive national title games from 2000-2002. When the Canes won the national title in 2001, a big reason why was Ravens Hall of Fame safety Ed Reed.

Nearly 20 years later, Reed will return to Miami to coach and help the program get back to greatness. 

Miami head coach Manny Diaz spoke about the addition of Reed to his coaching staff. 

“We are thrilled to welcome Ed back to Coral Gables. He is not only one of the most decorated players in Miami football history but also a devoted Cane who cares deeply about this program.”

Reed holds Miami records with 21 interceptions and five pick-six's. Reed was an All-American in both 2000 and 2001 before winning a national championship. 

His amazing production at Miami translated to the pros, as Reed was inducted to the Hall of Fame in 2019 after 12 seasons in Baltimore. Reed went on the win Defensive Player of the Year in 2004, made six Pro Bowl teams, and helped lead the Ravens to a Super Bowl championship in 2012. 

Most recently, Reed served as an assistant defensive backs coach for the Buffalo Bills in 2016.
