The Miami Hurricanes are the latest in teams that are refuting the rumors that they are looking to leave the ACC for a more lucrative deal. However, the Hurricanes are making it a flat out denial and saying that they have absolutely no interest in leaving their current situation in the ACC.
Miami athletic director Shawn Eichorst fully refuted those claims in a full statement.
We are so fortunate at Miami. Our University, under past and present visionary leadership and with an 87-year history of achievement, is strong in our foundation and in our beliefs. It allows us to stay steady when there are stormy seas, and that core strength holds us together today more than ever.
The additions of the University of Pittsburgh and Syracuse University, as well as the new exclusive television partnership with ESPN, signal the very strength and nationwide appeal of the ACC.
Keep your eyes open though, deals could come up at any time to lure the Hurricanes away from the ACC.
