The Miami Hurricanes hired Rhett Lashlee to take over as the Offensive Coordinator and Quarterbacks coach following the firing of Dan Enos. This comes after the 14-0 loss to Louisiana Tech in the Independence Bowl. The offense was pretty much nonexistent the entire game. The Hurricanes were 5-14 on third downs and had 227 total yards in the game.
Rhett Lashlee served the Offensive Coordinator and QB Coach for SMU before coming to the Hurricanes. SMU had a very good offense last year. Here is a chart on where SMU ranked this past season. Stats are from (espn.com)

SMU had a lot of success on the offensive side of the ball last season. They were consistently getting the ball downfield mostly through passing and most importantly getting points on the scoreboard.
Here is a chart on how many points SMU scored against their opponents.
SMU didn’t play the best opponents but they proved a point. Rhett Lashlee knows how to run an offense and hopefully, he can bring his smarts to Miami and help this offense.
