"I'm glad you brought him up. He's the other guy that has really played well. Sean has excellent hands," Coker said.
Coker was impressed with the progress made by the offensive unit during the second day as the Hurricanes went through drills for over two hours. Coker signaled out junior receiver Jason Geathers for his work in the session.
"I'll tell you what Jason Geathers had a great day. He was a standout today," said Coker after the Hurricanes finished their second in shorts and helmets. "The offense was a lot more functional. Their effeciency was good."
Coker was impressed with 'all' the linebackers.
Coker also praised wide receivers Andre Johnson and Kevin Beard for their production in practice. Johnson had several impressive receptions, including beating James Scott on a long pass.
SLOWLY: Junior longsnapper Chris Harvey, recovering from a torn ACL in his right knee, will be limited for most of the spring.
DANGERFIELD, PRASEK FINISHED: Coker said that the playing days at Miami for linebacker KenDangerfield and reserve quarterback Troy Prasek are over. Dangerfield never recovered from a serious ankle injury and Prasek suffered from viral myocarditis, an inflamatory disease of the heart.
BABY BLUE: The Hurricanes will play a home-and-home series with the University of North Carolina, starting in 2006 in Chapel Hill. The Tar Heels will visit the Orange Bowl in 2009. The schools have met seven times in football with UNC holding a 4-3 edge in the series that dates back to 1946. UM has a 52-45-1 records all-time against the Atlantic Coast Conference.
