Miami AD Blake James says he has been in regular communication with Golden in recent days and believes he'll stay at Miami.

CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) Miami expects Al Golden to stay with the Hurricanes, athletic director Blake James said Saturday in response to speculation that the football coach may be poised to leave for Penn State.

James says he has been in regular communication with Golden in recent days and believes he will remain at Miami. Golden played for Joe Paterno at Penn State and has emerged as a top candidate to replace Bill O'Brien with the Nittany Lions.

O'Brien resigned to take over as coach of the NFL's Houston Texans.

Golden has not responded to messages for several days about the Penn State search. He's 22-15 in three seasons at Miami, spending much of that time dealing with the now-closed NCAA investigation revolving around the actions of a former booster.
