Miami Hurricanes hire Tim 'Ice' Harris

It has been a good couple of months for Tim “Ice” Harris.

Harris led Booker T. Washington High School in Miami, Florida to both the state and national championship in December. Then, just a month ago, his son, Treon Harris, signed with the Florida Gators. Harris is a quarterback, who was the runner up for Mr. Football in the state of Florida to Florida State Seminoles’ signee Dalvin Cook.

Now, Harris has accepted a job with the Miami Hurricanes, the school announced on Monday via Matt Porter of the Palm Beach Post.

Harris resigned as Miami-Booker T. Washington head coach to join Al Golden’s staff as Assistant Director of Football Operations, UM announced Monday. Harris will be the primary liaison with high school coaches and will assist in coordinating community service events for players.

Harris, 48, is one of the most respected figures in Miami high school football and has deep roots in the city. Though he will not be able to evaluate and recruit players, his presence should boost UM’s recruiting efforts in its backyard.

Obviously, this is an attempt to improve local recruiting. Both the Seminoles and Gators have had a lot of success in South Florida lately.

This will be Harris’ second stint with the Hurricanes. He was a special assistant to Randy Shannon from 2008-2010.

Harris’ son, Tim Harris, Jr. will take over at Booker T. Washington.
