Former Ravens safety Ed Reed said he'd listen if the University of Miami called him about their open coaching position.
A former Hurricanes star, Reed would replace coach Al Golden, who was fired Sunday after Miami lost to Clemson, 58-0, on Saturday.
In an interview on The Rich Eisen Show, Reed said he hadn't received a call yet, but "would definitely listen, definitely would go and talk and want to know where they're trying to go, what they want to do, what they're looking to do.
"I would entertain it," Reed told Eisen. "I'm in a different place in my life right now."
"We definitely need some coaches that understand the players, that can relate to the players and coach them well," Reed said when asked Monday what Miami needed. He said it wasn't vital that the next Hurricanes coach be a former Miami player, but said such a coach would have advantages.
"It makes sense to have somebody around there that knows the system, knows the tradition and knows how we kind of do things," he said.
