MIAMI (AP) — Florida International hired former Colorado coach Mike MacIntyre to lead the Panthers on Thursday.
MacIntyre, 56, was most recently the defensive coordinator at Memphis.
He replaces Butch Davis, the former Miami coach who parted ways with the school after going 24-32 over five seasons.
MIAMI (AP) — Scott Carr was hired Tuesday as FIU’s athletic director, coming to the Panthers after nearly six years in the athletic department at UCF.
It’s the first step toward what FIU hopes is a revamping of athletics, a process that will begin with the hiring of a new football coach.
MIAMI (AP) — Butch Davis will not be back as FIU's football coach in 2022, and the search for a new coach will not begin until the school's hiring of a new athletic director is completed.
Florida International began a search for a new athletic director after Pete Garcia announced Wednesday that he is resigning following 15 years on the job.
Garcia is now a senior adviser to FIU President Mark Rosenberg, focusing on revenue generation and fundraising.
