    The Hurricanes will have a new look in 2014.

    The University of Miami plans to reveal all new uniforms for the Hurricanes' 2014 football season this spring, the school said in a news release.

    The new look is being designed by Nike. There is not a date set yet for the unveiling, but UM did confirm that the new look will be available for fans to purchase ahead of the 2014 season at its official online store and in retail stores.

    “The timing is right and we want a uniform that speaks to our tradition, yet recognizes current trends. Nike is working on innovative designs with the latest performance technology and we are excited to unveil them this spring,” head coach Al Golden said in the release.

    The last time that the Hurricanes refreshed their look was in 2006 and Nike has been actively updating looks at the pro and college ranks recently. Since then, the team has also donned three special edition uniforms. The school hasn't said if the helmets will also be altered or if modifications will just come to the rest of the uniform.

    “There is no better design team than the group of experts at Nike, and we’re excited about bringing new uniforms to our team and especially our fan base that has been asking for a refreshed look," Miami athletic director Blake James said in the release.

    The Hurricanes finished the 2013 campaign a disappointing 9-4 after dropping four of their final six games, including the Russell Athletic Bowl. That final loss was a lopsided 36-9 defeat at the hands of Louisville.

    But there is some optimism heading into 2014 due to a strong signing class. It's a class that the Miami Herald referred to as the best one in Golden's time at UM. Now, that new class will also have a new look to go with it.
