Other reports, dont Mike Ryan Ruiz of the Dan LeBatard Show, indicate that the agreement has already been made for Cristobal to leave Oregon for Miami. As of Sunday morning, Manny Diaz was neither fired nor removed from his duties as head coach of Miami. Cristobal, was reportedly on the road to recruit for Oregon on Saturday. CBS Sports’ Dennis Dodd reports Cristobal is’ possibly the top contender ‘ but no decision is taken yet.
Cristobal acknowledged the information Friday night after the Ducks’ 38-10 loss to Utah in the Pac-12 Championship game. This is far from the first time he has answered such questions.
“When you say someone offered, I didn’t speak to anyone,” Cristobal said, via DuckTerritory. “Let’s not create stories while we’re sitting here in this press conference. Oregon is working on some stuff for me, and that’s what I have right now. This is the extent of this conversation. “
Media then asked Cristobal what he would say to fans in Oregon who were concerned about his future on the show.
“I would say if there is anything to report, I will report it,” Cristobal said. “I always have. I think over the years, maybe because some things are on the air or not, every year all of our staff, be it behind the scenes or in public or not, we’ve always had people who came for our. people, including myself. How the media treat it and how they choose to present it, I have no control over. ”
Cristobal is 35-13 years old (23-10 Pac-12) since taking office in 2018.
A native of Miami, Cristobal has played and coached for the Hurricanes. He started his college football career as an attacking tackle with the program from 1989 to 1992. After a brief professional stint with the Amsterdam Admirals, Cristobal became a coach, returning to Miami as an assistant graduate from 1998-00.
