Miami linebackers coach Micheal Barrow is taking a sabbatical and will not be with the Hurricanes this season to tend to an undisclosed family matter.
The Hurricanes announced the move Friday, four days before the team will have its first practice of training camp.
Hurlie Brown is moving from running backs coach to replace Barrow with the linebackers. Tim Harris will replace Brown with the running backs, and former Hurricanes wide receiver Kevin Beard has been hired to fill Harris' role as assistant director of football operations.
Barrow played for the Hurricanes before 13 seasons in the NFL and was part of Miami's coaching staff for seven seasons.
