CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) - Mario Cristobal is returning to the Miami Hurricanes.
The school says Cristobal was hired Thursday as the Hurricanes' associate head coach and tight ends coach. It's Cristobal's fourth stint at Miami: He played for two national-championship teams there between 1988 and 1992, was a graduate assistant from 1998 through 2000 and then returned as an assistant coach from 2004 through 2006.
Cristobal spent the past six seasons as the head coach at Florida International, which fired him last month after two bowl appearances.
At Miami, Cristobal assumes the duties of coaching tight ends from Brennan Carroll, who will now coach wide receivers.
