Randy Shannon Q&A: Day 1

The Hurricanes held their first spring practice today. Coach Randy Shannon spoke after his first true on-field stint as head coach of the team:



Q: How did the first day of practice go?


Shannon: It was alright. It was the first day, but players weren't in pads. There was a lot of enthusiasm, and we wanted to get the timing right. That's what we worked on today. The energy level was great. Guys flew around. Nobody walked from drill to drill. I wanted guys to understand what we're trying to get done. The (assistant) coaches have done a good job of that.

Q: How much were you involved in various position groups as head coach now?

Shannon: You get into drills, you get involved. I started off watching the quarterbacks and running backs -- hand the ball off. I watched the receivers. I bounced around. I see different things. Players want to understand that I'm part of them and not separate. I can scan the whole field from any spot. I don't know about being a head coach; it was good to get on the field as a coach. I coach for a reason and it's fun. It's why we're in this business.

Q: How was the energy level?

Shannon: It was great. Guys flew around, bounced around. We finished 15 minutes ahead of schedule, which was good.

Q: How did the quarterbacks look?

Shannon: I don't know.

Q: What are you trying to teach?

Shannon: We have to teach guys on the field what we want to get done. They're doing a good job with it. We have meetings at a certain time ... they understand what it takes to get it done. You have to have chemistry as a team.

Q: How important is it to have a good tempo?

Shannon: Big tempo is real big. You can lounge around, but you don't ever get in football shape. You have to get in football shape. You just go through the motions, go through drills not finishing blocks, chasing the ball downfield, when game time comes you won't be able to do that.

Q: James Bryant didn't have his helmet on in practice.

Shannon: His helmet just didn't work, I think.

Q: If there's one thing you want to get out of spring practice, what is it?

Shannon: Team. We need team chemistry. We have to get the chemistry issue down. We are working together for a common goal. Nobody is worried about how many receptions they're getting or how many sacks or how many touchdowns they get. We're all in this together.

* Several players have changed jersey numbers: punter Daren Daly went from 39 to 31 and wide receiver Ryan Hill from 12 to 13. The following players will not participate in spring drills because they are rehabilitating injuries: DT Luqman Abdallah, OL Tyrone Byrd, LB Romeo Davis, OT Jason Fox, DB Tervaris Johnson, WR George Robinson, LB Darryl Sharpton, OL Ian Symonette, RB George Timmons and OL A.J. Trump.

* The Hurricanes will practice again on Wednesday, with a 3:05 practice session. All practices are closed to the public this spring with the exception of scrimmages on March 23 and March 30 and the spring game on April 7.

Day 1 Wrap-Up

Randy Shannon's first spring practice as head coach saw players hustling from station to station and a field full of position battles.


"There's no defensive back depth chart," cornerback [db]Glenn Sharpe[/db] said after drills ended. "We all got reps."

Indeed, there are no set first-teamers right now, as Shannon told the media yesterday.

What there is right now is a lot of guys battling and showing a lot of energy.

"Practice was great," offensive lineman [db]Derrick Morse[/db] said. "It's everything you expect from the first day. Everyone's excited, hyped up to play, a lot of energy."

Sharpe added, "It was guys getting in the full swing of things, guys running around, the whole team looked enthusiastic. I thought the first day was pretty good, a good attitude. But there's a lot of room for improvement."

Linebacker [db]Tavares Gooden[/db] said after the day's action that "We're going to go out there and compete. That guy behind you is ready to jump in there and take your place. [Shannon is] bringing more competitiveness to the whole team."

Morse, who has previously played guard at Miami, spent the day at center.

"I was playing it for the first time, and it went pretty well," Morse said. "I've been practicing snapping the past couple of weeks. Obviously I have to get better every day at the new position, but whatever it takes to win. I'm giving it everything I've got."

Morse was playing on a depleted line that is missing injured players [db]Jason Fox[/db], [db]A.J. Trump[/db] and [db]Ian Symonette[/db].

Will that keep this group from gelling until the fall?

"No, because the thing is we're such a tight group on the field and off it -- we're always hanging out," Morse said. "The bond we had last year with everybody was pretty strong. We all feel that no matter who we have in, we're picking it all up. You don't feel a drop-off with anybody. You trust the guy next to you. Today's the first day, so we have only two or three plays in. As we get more plays in, if guys can handle that, we'll see. As of right now I'm confident in everybody we have."

Quarterbacks [db]Kyle Wright[/db] and [db]Kirby Freeman[/db] shared reps throughout practice, and neither were allowed to speak with the media afterward per Shannon's rules.

"They have a competition going on this spring," Morse said. "As far as I can see they're both doing well. You can't tell for sure till you watch film and stuff."

Linebacker [db]Tavares Gooden[/db] said after today's practice that the main goal for the remaining 14 practices is "Just basically get the young guys ready. It's time to pick it up now."

* Sharpe said the defense had one interception in team drills today -– it came from the linebacker corps. He pointed to [db]Sam Shields[/db] as making the catch of the day deep downfield during 11-on-11 team drills.

"The whole offense looks like they're going to progress well," Sharpe said. "The quarterbacks are throwing the ball well. Up front the guys look good. The defense, we were exploding off the ball. I feel the offense and defense, even second team and third team did well."

* Of newcomer [db]Doug Wiggins[/db], Sharpe said, "He's doing real well. He's going to be a good player, has good feet. He looks like he's really excited about being here. I'm excited to see how he progresses."

Sharpe adds of [db]Graig Cooper[/db] that, "Graig is a great player, another freshman. He's going to be a great athlete. Right now all of us are looking good. Everyone's excited."

* QUOTE OF THE DAY: Tavares Gooden laughed when asked what it's like for offensive players to play under Shannon, then said, "A lot of guys, they're like, `Man, that guy's nuts.' They don't know how we did it. But after a while they say it's for the best. Everyone is feeling good. We have certain systems for getting guys overweight in shape, and now guys can make plays because they are in better shape. Everybody knows he has a great system where you have to compete."

* The offense is incorporating a lot of new terminology and plays from first-year coordinator Patrick Nix.

So far, with just a few plays in, there have been few glitches.

"This is a new offense, and we're excited about it," Morse said. "For the O line it's not too much you can do differently, just stuff we have to memorize –- instead of this play it's called this play."

Sharpe says he's noticed the difference in the offense already: "There's some different looks on offense," he said. "It's exciting for me and our team. It puts the offensive guys in better position to make plays. We'll have opportunities to score more points."

* Sharpe said of new defensive backs coach Wesley McGriff that "He's pretty upfront, is like coach Shannon, is a no-nonsense guy. He's cool, fair. You know what he wants. The other new coaches are happy to be here also and are ready to coach and really want to win."

Sharpe said the defense is not doing much differently under new coordinator Tim Walton.

* Shannon has said there's no set depth chart. In coming out drills for the offense the following were the separate teams:

TEAM A: QB Kyle Wright; TB Javarris James; LT Reggie Youngblood, LG Chris Rutledge, C Derrick Morse, RG Andrew Bain and RT Cyrim Wimbs; WR Khalil Jones and Sam Shields; TE Dajleon Farr. No FB lined up (James Bryant had shells on but no helmet)

TEAM B: QB Kirby Freeman; TB Graig Cooper; LT Chris Barney, LG Joel Figueroa, C Matt Pipho, RG Jonathan Teske, RT Reggie Youngblood (he took double reps because he is trying to learn RT for when Jason Fox returns in the fall); WR Lance Leggett and Darnell Jenkins; TE Dedrick Epps. No FB lined up.

Once promising Miami Edison recruit Terrell Walden has called it a career.


Hampered by a pair of torn ACL injuries he was never able to fully return from, Walden is no longer on the Hurricane football team. He would have been a senior receiver this year.

Walden will continue to compete for the track team -- he is a former Big East 100-meter sprint champion.

Walden was considered the state's fastest prospect out of high school, when he had offers from the likes of Florida, NC State and Michigan State.

He redshirted in 2003, then sat out 2004 after tearing the ACL in his right knee during spring practice. In 2005 he played in 10 games, mostly on special teams. He tore his left ACL in December but returned in time for last season. He played in nine games in 2006, mostly on special teams.

Without Walden on the spring roster and with George Robinson injured, the only healthy scholarship receivers are Lance Leggett, Darnell Jenkins, Sam Shields, Ryan Hill and Khalil Jones.

Yeah for real^^

I don't like Miami Lakes that much, even though i keeps it locked in North Miami.

But still, i love the OB way too much... the memories...... and the banner that says "The City of Miami Welcomes You To The Orange Bowl". For some reason i love that banner. It touches my heart. :)

There are two new faces on campus this spring: Freshmen tailback Graig Cooper and cornerback Doug Wiggins.

Of the two, it appears Cooper has the best chance for early playing time.

There is not much proven quality behind Javarris James, and Cooper is also getting work at handling returns in practice – "hopefully I'll be doing that during the season," he says.

So how have his first two spring practices gone as a Hurricane?

"I'm doing well, but the other running backs are doing well also," Cooper said.

Cooper says he's working into action with everyone else and that there's no set first, second or third team.

"We're working together right now," Cooper said. "It's no first or second team. Coach [Tommie] Robinson is telling us we need to get better. We think we're doing well but he said we can do better."

Cooper got in for some plays in 11-on-11 work today.

"I got in, just had a couple of runs," he said. "But it doesn't count. It's just work, working hard."

As for if the competition level is what he expected, Cooper said, "It's a lot harder than I thought it would be. We're all working together. We're all working hard."

Asked what he thinks his role might be in Patrick Nix's new offense, Cooper said, "I'm just working right now; I'm not worrying about any role right now."

Typically something that holds back freshman running backs is picking up blitzes. Cooper says he's been studying blitz pickups and that "It's easy.

"Javarris is taking me under his wing, all of the running backs are. It's a whole new offense, so everybody's helping everybody."

In pre-spring testing Cooper had a 415-pound squat and 270-pound bench press.

RANDY SHANNON Q&A

Q: How did practice go today?


Shannon: We still have a long way to go, things to get done. We're working on turnovers, turning the ball over, creating turnovers. The defense created a lot of turnovers today. Those things can win or lose games for us. We have to get those things corrected (on offense). Our staff is doing a great job with it.

Q: Bruce Johnson and Derron Thomas didn't participate again today. Are they injured?

Shannon: Bruce isn't completely out, and Derron isn't completely out. Those guys are probably going to finish spring football.

Q: Was there anything different today from Day 1 of the spring?

Shannon: The tempo was a lot better. Every day we have to get better with tempo, what we're trying to get done, in and out of the huddle, having fun. And they're having a lot of fun with it.

Q: What is the biggest thing you like to get done in practice?

Shannon: The biggest thing we've got to do as a team – drillwork and fundamental are the small things. We always have to work on creating turnovers and prevent turnovers. When you do drills like that every day, emphasize it, players really respond to it.

Q: Daren Daly and Matt Bosher are competing for the punter and kicking jobs?

Shannon: They're competing. We'll wait till that Tuesday before Marshall and decide what we're gong to decide on. We still have some walkon guys. It's a free-for-all. [Addressing a reporter] You want to come out? You can kick some balls for us, too.

Q: How did the quarterbacks look today?

Shannon: All of them look great, all five of them did a nice job.

Q: What about the offensive line?

Shannon: We need to find five to eight guys on the O-line that can help us win games. We just have to find guys that can help us win. We're trying to find the right mix. Somebody's going to get nicked, so find another guy. Make sure you do all the things in spring football to make sure you're okay when fall comes around.

Q: There are still no starters?

Shannon: This is our philosophy: Day 1, no starters, no problems with anybody. Same thing Day 1 in the fall. If problems come we deal with them as they come. We just make sure everyone's doing the right thing right now.

Q: You have only three scholarship tight ends on the roster.

Shannon: Coach [Patrick] Nix, [Joe] Pannunzio are doing a great job with them. We like what they're doing with running, receiving, running routes. We're excited about those guys. They were great guys coming out of high school. It's a great opportunity for them to step up.

Q: Other players are saying Graig Cooper looks great.

Shannon: I expect that out of him. That's why I recruited him to come to Miami. We're excited about it.

REGGIE YOUNGBLOOD Q&A

Q: Has there been a noticeable difference as far as O-line coaching the first two days of practice?

Youngblood: I'm used to it – he's [Jeff Stoutland] a really intense dude, but so was Cristobal so it's nothing new.

Q: Is there a large difference in the intensity factor?

Youngblood: He's just a little more hype a little more of the time. He's a bit more physical, too.

Q: Is that something that can benefit you?

Youngblood: Yeah, it's something that can help us get on the ball – get us moving and hype and playing with a little more enthusiasm.

Q: Do you think that will benefit you more?

Youngblood: Yeah, just us as a whole -- that's what we all want to work on, playing with a little more energy because we're on the O-line and we have to make plays, too, and that's what coach Stout wants us to do. They're really intense dudes and they teach. They're basically the same – they're real intense, and they also calm down and teach, too.

Q: Is it kind of difficult to have one coach teach you one way and then have somebody else come in and teach you a different style?

Youngblood: They [Mario Cristobal and Stoutland] are coaching mirrors of each other, so not really. It's all basically the same techniques, but they each have their own kind of style.

Q: What are some of the different techniques they use?

Youngblood: Just using our hands, certain steps.

Q: Is there a significant difference with coach Randy Shannon, from what you've seen the first two days?

Youngblood: I believe with coach Shannon, it's a little bit more upbeat and up-tempo.

Q: Is the approach almost like you have a game on Saturday?

Youngblood: Every day's like that.
