Jim Larranaga appointed to Miami faculty

Miami coach Jim Larranaga is now going to do some teaching.

Miami coach Jim Larranaga is now a member of the school’s faculty. Larranaga, last season’s Associated Press men’s basketball coach of the year, has been appointed an Adjunct Assistant Professor of Kinesiology and Sport Sciences at Miami. Because of his coaching responsibilities, Larranaga will be a guest lecturer at Miami’s School of Education and Human Development. Larranaga studied education in college and always planned to be a teacher. He was also a member of the faculty at George Mason, where he coached before coming to the Hurricanes.

So…I guess he’ll know at least part of your GPA and if it’s high enough to academically play games, right? Ha! Okay, well it sounds good. He recently was extended for 3 years as coach so I’m guessing he’s gonna stay for a while. And, judging by the last sentence in the quote, it’s not his first time in duel roles.
