CORAL GABLES, Fla. — A person familiar with the situation says Miami offensive line coach Jeff Stoutland has accepted an offer to be the Hurricanes' interim coach.

Stoutland was taking over Sunday morning for Randy Shannon, the person told The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the university did not authorize any public comment before a 1 p.m. Sunday news conference.

Shannon was fired Saturday night by athletic director Kirby Hocutt after the Hurricanes completed a 7-5 regular season.

Miami players are not scheduled to practice again until Saturday. The Hurricanes expect to have a bowl destination, possibly the Sun Bowl, locked in by week's end.
