Miami of Ohio will name Notre Dame offensive coordinator Mike Haywood as its head coach on Tuesday, sources familiar with the situation said.
The hiring of Haywood will bring the number of African-American football coaches in the Bowl Championship Subdivision to six of 119 programs. He will succeed Shane Montgomery, who resigned last month.
According to two sources close to Haywood, he has agreed to contract terms with the university.
Congrats to Mike Haywood for getting his chance to be a head coach. More on this later.
