McDermott talks coaching change

Read on to see everything offensive lineman Kc McDermott is saying a few days after coach Al Golden was fired.

On playing for Malik Rosier:
Our style of play doesn’t change. We will continue to play the way we do.

On Rosier this week:
I think he’s more comfortable and confident. His preparation has been great. He’s focused on what he has to do and we are focused on what we have to do.

On Artie Burns:
My family and myself, our thoughts and prayers are with him and his family. He’s a great player and I’m sure he’ll have his mother watching over him.

On the last few days:
These past four days have inspired us. Nothing against Coach Golden. We would have been inspired to play hard whoever was coaching us. We just have to focus on what’s next and prepare ourselves for this weekend.

On how he took the news:
It’s hard because you see a guy who puts so much hard work in this place. It’s sad but at the same time I woke up the next morning focused on this weekend. We can’t worry about what’s happened already. Regardless who our head coach is, players have to go out and play. It’s on us. We have to play hard.

On the talent level here:
Talent has never been a problem. Over the past 10 months, we are a much unified group. We are ready for what’s next. We can’t look back on what happened. We have to come ready to play. We’ve had great practices the last two days and our focus is the same.
