FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — Mario Cristobal made his spring debut Saturday afternoon as the new head coach of the Miami Hurricanes.
Miami quarterback Tyler Van Dyke led the offense to a 31-27 win over the defense at DRV PNK Stadium in Fort Lauderdale.
The reigning Atlantic Coast Conference rookie of the year completed 21-of-32 passes for 177 yards and a touchdown.
Cristobal joins Miami from Oregon, where he led the Ducks to a 35-13 record and two Pacific 12 Conference championships in five seasons. The former two-time national champion returned to his alma mater in December looking to restore the Hurricanes to their glory days.
