QB Coach:Todd Berry Q&A

Q: What is your post-spring take on Kyle Wright?


Berry: I'm very, very excited about Kyle. He's passionate, talented, is cerebral. He's a great talent. And he recognizes the things he needs to work on. He wants to get better as a player, so he kind of hangs on every word that you talk about. He's going to work hard to continue to get better because he's driven by the desire to become the best that he can be and also recognizes the impact with what we're doing offensively of what he can do for the team.

Q: The changes on offense that have been put in, do they accentuate his particular skill sets better?

Berry: I think currently what we're doing, it's still a work in progress -- and early-on we ran an awful lot of last year's offense and continue to do so; there was nothing wrong with what they were doing last year, there were some very good things. But we want to get a gauge on what we have. Saying that, there's no question we have some athletic quarterbacks, and we need to make sure those quarterbacks are a functional part of the offense rather than a secondary part of the offense.

Q: Was it hard for the quarterbacks to get the timing down with so few healthy scholarship receivers this spring?

Berry: It wasn't necessarily that hard. Is our chemistry great? No. But our timing is good, and that's more important right now. The main focus I had with the quarterbacks this spring was making sure we were throwing on our time rather than on the receivers time. The orchestration that goes on between the quarterbacks and the receivers is really important. But the quarterbacks have got to get the receivers on their page rather than vice versa. And if you wait on receivers, then they're going to always -- every place that I've ever been -- control the timing in the passing game, which is what you don't want. So my focus this spring wasn't necessarily on completions, but on us getting the ball out of our hands whenever we were ready to get the ball out of our hands. And through that process you teach your receivers that, `Hey, you better be here at this time, because that's where the ball is going to be and that's when it's going to be there.' Along those lines we made tremendous progress. It doesn't mean we always had completions, but our receivers are now learning that `Hey, I've got to be here at this time' regardless of which receiver it is, a starter or not. The timing in the passing game is controlled by the quarterback and not the receiver, and I think we did a good job with that.

Q: So if the receiver stopped two yards short and cut on a route this spring and Kyle saw that, Kyle would throw the ball nowhere near the receiver?

Berry: Exactly. Hit him in the back of the head with the ball. As soon as we're ready to throw, we're throwing the football. It's on our time, not their time.

Q: Receivers really were getting hit in the helmet with balls?

Berry: Oh, absolutely. They didn't early-on until I kind of got the quarterbacks convinced in this mode of doing that. But I think in the process, the receivers are excited. The offensive line is excited about how fast we're getting the ball out of our hands. And they know where the football's going to be all the time. It's the quarterbacks teaching the receivers where they need to be rather than the receivers going out and figuring where they want to be and the quarterbacks working off that.

Q: With Kirby Freeman, what have you seen in his development this spring?

Berry: He's very intelligent, is passionate about getting better. Both those guys are great competitors. They come to work every day. Kirby's a very creative guy, and that's something I really can't coach. He's got great pocket awareness. The (two quarterbacks) are a little bit different, so I handle them a little bit different. In certain situations I'll tell Kyle `I'd like to see you do this.' And I'd say to Kirby `I'd like to see you do that.' There's nothing wrong with that. I've done that before with quarterbacks. I think in the process of all that, you allow each quarterback to express who they are rather than get into this robot mold, which is not what we want our quarterbacks to be. We don't want a bunch of robots. We want them to utilize their talents.

Q: With Freeman, coach Larry Coker mentioned he could get his own package of plays in games. But he has similar speed to Wright, so what gives him a niche?

Berry: That's all really still to be played out. With 15 practices (this spring), that's somewhat a limited number of practices to make some true judgments on. But certainly Kirby is a very, very quick player. Consequently we need to utilize his quickness on plays. Quarterbacks are certainly going to call the game differently depending on what quarterback is in there. So we want to utilize both their skills along those lines. Where that fits in, that's still up in the air. But certainly there's some roles that Kirby can play. We've had some very, very open conversations, Kirby and I, about where he's at and what he needs to do, as I've had with Kyle and the other (walk-on) quarterbacks. Most young people just want to know where they sit.

Q: Are Kyle and Kirby close to where you want them to be based on the spring?

Berry: I think as far as their knowledge of what we're doing right now, yes. Are there things we need to improve on? There's no question. I also understand that hopefully they gain some things from the spring that last them through the summer as far as things I'd like to see corrected. They're both hard workers. This summer they're going to go out there and work on those things, because that's the kind of people they are. I know they'll come back in pre-season camp maybe not being perfect, but they're going to be better

CaneSport News Wire
The University of Miami's Kelly Jennings was selected with the 31st choice in the first round of Saturday's NFL draft, extending the school record streak to 12 consecutive years in which a Hurricanes player has been chosen in the first round. He was chosen by the Seattle Seahawks.


The streak is unprecedented in football history. The previous longest streak was eight straight years by the University of Florida (1983-91). The University of Miami's string began in 1995 when Warren Sapp was drafted in the first round. Since then, UM has had 29 players drafted in the first round of the NFL draft.

"It's a badge of honor. It is pretty special," said UM head coach Larry Coker. "I am very excited that the streak has continued. The streak is nice, but I'm really excited for Kelly Jennings."

Since 1982, Miami has had 45 players drafted in the first round of the NFL draft. Prior to 1982, only 11 UM players had ever been selected in the first round.

The next player taken from UM in this year's draft was Roger McIntosh, who went with pick 35 (No. 3 in the second round) to the Washington Redskins. Sinorice Moss followed later in the second round with the No. 44 overall pick to the New York Giants. And Devin Hester went at No. 57 overall to the Chicago Bears.

Eric Winston was the next Cane selected with the No. 2 pick of the third round (No. 66 overall). He went to Houston. And Rashad Butler went with the No. 89 overall pick to Carolina.

Others picked in the draft: Leon Williams (fourth round, 13th pick to Cleveland), Orien Harris (fourth round, 36th pick to Pittsburgh) and Marcus Maxey (fifth round, 22nd pick to Kansas City).

yall didnt do to much of anything to beat us. offensively wise more so than defensively. we had dropped INT's, missed FG's, bad snaps, 1st year starter at QB and yall could only crawl to a victory. and from all reports so far yall still cant run the ball.
