Spring Quotes - Day One

The University of Miami football team opened spring practice Tuesday. With a myriad of position battles, most notably the quarterbacks, this spring should be very entertaining for the fans. Following day one we caught up with head coach Lary Coker, quarterbacks coach Dan Werner as well as Frank Gore and Jason Geathers.

Larry Coker talked about a variety of topics when he addressed the media.

Coker on the offensive and defensive line play ...

"The defense had a lot of energy, the offense with a new center and quarterbacks, we had no exchange problems."

On the quarterbacks ...

"They worked with all teams. We will take a look at all four quarterbacks throughout the spring."

On the progress of the wide receivers ...

"It's day one and they had a good day today, we are kind of looking for that go-to-guy". Coker also said that he was impressed with Jason Geathers and Ryan Moore.

Frank Gore

If a game were today, I asked Frank Gore would he be ready?

"Yea, I would be ready for it."

On working certain drills this spring ...

"Whatever the coaches let me do, I'm willing to do it."

Coach Werner

"Today is exactly what I expected, we completed some and we didn't complete some. They are working hard and it will be a long spring." I asked about Kyle Wright and Werner said he looked good for a true freshman.

Jason Geathers

Do you feel you can be the go-to-guy?

"Yea I feel I can but it's a team effort and not one individual, I want to push myself a little bit harder."

Other Notes

Vince Wilfork participated at long snapper.
