Miami Hurricanes defensive coordinator responds to criticism from Warren Sapp


While, no, they haven’t fallen completely off the face of the earth, the Miami Hurricanes football program certainly isn’t anywhere near what it once was. When a program falls from grace like that, former great players that watch closely tend to get a little frustrated and let their opinions known, such as Warren Sapp recently did when he said that current Miami defensive coordinator Mark D’Onofrio is “killing my school.”

Well, while not as controversial, D’Onofrio recently gave his rebuttal to Sapp’s comments by basically saying he can only worry about what’s in front of him at the moment.

“I’m not going to worry about that,” the coach said according to the Miami Herald. “The guys in the building understand what we’re doing. I can only worry about coaching the guys here and trying to get them to execute at a higher level.”

The thing is, though, Sapp isn’t wrong. Miami is poor on defense, ranking in the bottom half of nearly every statistical category, and it doesn’t seem as if things are going to improve any time soon.
