WR Coach Candidate: DelVaughn Alexander

George McDonald recently took the wide receiver job at Arkansas. That means Al Golden must find a replacement. CanesTime's Mike Bakas takes a look at possible replacements.

Note: This is simply one man's opinion of possibilities. There has not been any evidence of this coach being connected with the job.

DelVaughn Alexander -- Wide Receivers/Passing Game Coordinator at Arizona State

Now 41, Alexander played his college ball at USC. He actually played on some of the same teams as Keyshawn Johnson for the Trojans. After his playing days were over there, he spent two years as a graduate assistant before becoming the wide receivers coach at UNLV in 1998, and was there through the 2002 season. In 2003, Alexander was hired as wide receivers coach and recruiting coordinator at Oregon State. He spent two seasons there before spending two season as running backs coach at San Diego under current NFL coach Jim Harbaugh. When Harbaugh left for Stanford before the 2007 season, Alexander left to coach the wide receivers at Wisconsin. After five seasons there, Alexander left to coach wide receivers at Arizona State in 2012.

Born in Los Angeles, Alexander is used to living, playing, and coaching in the big city atmosphere like Miami. He has a nice history of coaching jobs. He's worked under some excellent head coaches, even spent a season as quality control for the San Diego Chargers, and has developed a good reputation as being a solid recruiter.

A lot of those characteristics are what you'd think Al Golden would be looking for in his next wide receivers coach here at the University of Miami.
