Currently in his third season as the head coach of the Hurricanes, Coker has led Miami to a 7-0 start this season and ranked second nationally in both major polls heading into a crucial game at Virginia Tech this Saturday. In two-and-a-half seasons as head coach, Coker has a 31-1 record, a mark that ranks as the finest start of any head coach in college football history. Coker's Hurricanes have been ranked among the nation's top three throughout his tenure and he has maintained the Miami program's high level of success through an almost complete overhaul of talent since taking over the job prior to the 2001 season.
