The University of Miami Hurricanes released Offensive Line Coach Art Kehoe. Kehoe is a native of Conshohocken who was part of the Hurricanes’ football program as a player and coach for more than 30 years. He is the only person who was a member of all five of the Hurricane’s national championship teams. Kehoe was also inducted into the Hurricane’s Hall of Fame in 2002.
