Rankings from AP Poll

The 2018 Miami Hurricanes football team (variously "Miami", "The U", "UM", "'Canes") represented the University of Miami during the 2018 NCAA Division I FBS football season. The Hurricanes were led by third-year head coach Mark Richt and played their home games at Hard Rock Stadium. They competed as a member of the Coastal Division of the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC). They finished the season 7–6, 4–4 in ACC play to finish in a 3-way tie for 3rd in the Coastal Division. They were invited to the Pinstripe Bowl where they would lose to Wisconsin.

On December 30, 2018, Richt announced his retirement after 3 seasons at Miami and 18 overall as head coach. That same day, the school named Manny Diaz as their new head coach.[1]

Previous season[edit]

The Hurricanes finished the 2017 season 10–3 overall and 7–1 in ACC play to win the Coastal Division for the first time and earn a trip to the ACC Championship Game, where they were defeated by Clemson. They received an invitation to the Orange Bowl where they lost to Wisconsin.
