Report: Swasey is gone

Longtime Strength and Conditioning coach Andreu Swasey won't be returning to Miami in 2016, reports say.

According to Bruce Feldman of FoxSports, Andreu Swasey will not be retained by new coach Mark Richt.

A gradate of Baylor University, where he played defensive back for the Bears, Swasey was first hired to be Miami's assistant Strength and Conditioning coach by former head coach Butch Davis prior to the 1997 season. After spending two seasons in that role, he spent the 1999 season coaching defensive backs at the University of Houston.

Swasey returned to Miami in Davis' final season at Miami, as co-Strength and Conditioning Coach. He took over the program in the 2001 season -- Miami's last national championship season. He's been in the same role for the last 15 years.

Swasey was retained by each of Miami's last two coaching hires -- Randy Shannon in 2007 and Al Golden in 2011. He will now have to explore other options. He's always been well-liked by former players.

"Listen, Coach Andreu Swasey is one of the best strength and conditioning coaches in NCAA," former Hurricane wide receiver Sinorice Moss said today after learning the news of Swasey's dismissal.

No replacement has been named yet but stay tuned.
