Kosar insists he's a viable candidate for UM job

Bernie Kosar realizes that on the surface it might seem inconceivable for a guy with no coaching experience to be considered for one of the highest-profile, highest-stress jobs in college sports. But the former University of Miami quarterback insists his interest in the vacant Hurricanes head-coaching job is not an ill-conceived pipe dream.

On the contrary. He said he has given it much thought, and done more homework than anyone realizes, including quizzing college coaches he admires about how they handle their programs, everything from curfews to staffing to facilities. He said if UM can't get one of the ''big-name, sure things,'' he feels he should be given consideration.

Kosar might enter UM coaching race

The name of a second prominent Hurricane surfaced Tuesday in the University of Miami coaching search.

As expected, UM athletic director Paul Dee interviewed UM defensive coordinator and former Hurricanes player Randy Shannon on Tuesday at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York.

Meanwhile, another famous Hurricanes alum -- Bernie Kosar -- confirmed that he has been approached by some UM trustees and is considering adding his name to the list of candidates to replace Larry Coker.

Kosar on Most Wanted' to help solve murder

Former Cleveland Browns quarterback Bernie Kosar offered his services to the team that produces Fox's long-running "America's Most Wanted: America Fights Back." He had heard that the series would be spotlighting the case of Charles Scott White, a cook murdered June 12 in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.

He also heard that White and his family had spent many happy hours cheering for their beloved Browns. So Kosar will take the prime-time field for the episode of "America's Most Wanted" airing at 9 p.m. Saturday on Fox- owned WJW Channel 8.

The segment shows Kosar getting to know White's family and police de tectives as signed to the case. It follows the former Boardman High School, University of Miami and NFL star over the past several weeks as he has traveled around southern Florida, encouraging anyone with information about the murder to contact a hot line for tips and leads.

Hey Bernie Stick To Football!

I was a big fan of Bernie Kosar. He led the Browns to 3 AFC Champonship and played a key role getting the Dallas Cowboys in the Super Bowl the year the Browns released him by subbing for Troy Aikman in the NFC Champonship game. Earlier this year he became entangled in a nasty divorce case and again I supported him because I always thought his wife Babette was always a gold digger.

So, whats Bernie up to now? He is doing ads for Mike Dewine to get re-elected. I agree that everyone should have there say but c'mon Bernie you live in Florida not Ohio. Haven't you seen how your hometown of Youngstown has been neglected by the GOP led Senate. Bernie, I think you would do a lot of good if you just kept your mouth shut on this one and watch while Sherrod Brown wins Dewine's seat.

It's been a question whispered and mur mured around Cleveland since the Browns' preseason games began, yet one people simply won't ask the man drawing the whispers and murmurs -- Bernie Kosar, the former team star quarterback.
Is Kosar battling a serious health issue?
That concern has been raised by numerous Browns fans, TV viewers and others, who suggest Kosar's voice and posture appear unsteady during his work as an analyst on WKYC Channel 3's preseason telecasts. But Kosar says his health is absolutely fine.
