A person familiar with the negotiations says Randy Shannon and TCU have agreed on a contract for the former Miami coach to become the Horned Frogs' linebackers coach.
Shannon and TCU are finalizing a contract, the person told The Associated Press Monday on condition of anonymity because the Horned Frogs have not announced the hiring. A call to a TCU spokesman was not immediately returned.
Shannon was fired by Miami at the end of the 2010 regular season.
He went 28-22 in four seasons with the Hurricanes, and before his stint as head coach was one of the nation's top defensive coordinators. He also was a linebacker for the Hurricanes and later for the Dallas Cowboys.
TCU is about to enter its first season in the Big 12 Conference.
