Manny Diaz is on the hot seat at Miami after a rocky start to the 2021 season. Miami is 1-2 through its first three games, with its lone victory in Week 2 vs. Appalachian State.

Defending national champion Alabama routed Miami 44-13 in the season opener. Michigan State ran roughshod en route to a decisive 38-17 victory vs. Miami last weekend.

Now, multiple Miami trustees are reportedly looking to “move on” from Diaz, according to the Miami Herald’s Barry Jackson.

There are some trustees who want to move on from Manny Diaz, but a UM official said there is not a significant groundswell toward firing Diaz now, though he cautioned that could change with more bad losses.

Two Miami-based trustees said they would expect Diaz — who has 2 ½ years left on his contract — to be given at least the rest of the season, unless there are multiple embarrassingly lopsided losses in the weeks ahead.

The 47-year-old Diaz replaced Mark Richt as Miami’s head coach in 2019. Diaz has amassed a 15-12 record during his tenure.

Oregon coach Mario Cristobal, a former Miami player, is the main target in the event Diaz is fired, according to the report. However, Miami’s limited budget would require Cristobal to take a hometown discount, making the hypothetical less realistic.

Miami hosts Central Connecticut in Week 4 before kicking off the ACC slate with a home matchup vs. Virginia.
