Brad Kaaya left. Maybe longer, depending on which kind of fan you ask. Former Houston quarterback D’Eriq King, after an unusual hiatus from playing last year, was brought in to change that. If his showing against Louisville was any indication, King is everything the Hurricanes could have wanted and more.” data-reactid=”33″>The Miami Hurricanes’ quarterback situation has been turbulent since Brad Kaaya left.
