What is Miami’s offense going to look like during the Mario Cristobal era?

That was a primary question Hurricanes fans had when Cristobal was hired to lead the UM program in early December of 2021. 

In early February, Cristobal hired reigning Broyles Award winner in Josh Gattis to serve as offensive coordinator. 

Cristobal took his time with finding a coordinator to lead the attack, but ultimately his vision for Miami’s offense shouldn’t have been surprising. 

Soon after Gattis was hired, Cristobal laid out his vision for Miami’s offense: 

“It is really explosive, it mixes tempo with the ability to go really fast and slow it down when you have to,” Cristobal said. “It is a true power, spread offense where you can get downhill on the running game and create explosive plays on the outside….Taking the steps to be an explosive and efficient offense that plays with physicality while taking advantage of all the explosive players that live in South Florida.”

Cristobal wants Miami to be balanced on offense, with the ability to be explosive and efficient in the passing game with a physical and explosive run game that can wear down and frustrate a defense during the course of a game. 

All of this sounds good as an idea, but it wouldn’t mean much if Cristobal couldn’t recruit the type of talent to execute this vision. 

Now that we are mid-way through the 2023 cycle, Cristobal’s vision for the offense is coming together in a big way. 

Read on for a look at how Cristobal’s vision is coming together via recruiting this 2023 cycle.
