MIAMI (AP) - A Miami Hurricanes legend is going back to his roots and rejoining the program.

Pro Football Hall of Famer Ed Reed has been hired as the new chief of staff for the Hurricanes’ football program, a deal that was announced Thursday and will be finalized when the school completes a standard background check.

The University said Reed will be tasked with helping Miami coach Manny Diaz "in all aspects of the football program, including strategic planning, quality control, operations, player evaluation and player development."
