“I’m honored and humbled. Words can’t describe,” Cristobal said upon being introduced as the school’s new football coach Tuesday morning. “This is strong. This hits as hard as it can hit. What an honor. … My god, what an honor.”
Cristobal, a Miami native who graduated from UM and played offensive line on two national title-winning Hurricanes teams, was hired as the school’s 26th head coach Monday. The Columbus High School grad compared the feeling to national signing day.
