Miami switching to Wright
By WALTER VILLA, Times Correspondent
Published September 12, 2007
CORAL GABLES - Two games into his first season as a head coach, Randy Shannon of the Miami Hurricanes announced Tuesday that he has switched starting quarterbacks. But Shannon also made it clear that he has no desire to keep benching QBs.
"Kyle Wright will be starting at quarterback," Shannon said. "But this won't be a round robin. It won't be Kyle one week and Kirby Freeman the next."
Shannon obviously wants the QB controversy to be a non story, which is probably why he announced some moves in his secondary and a few injury updates before he casually told the media he was switching to Wright.
The move was expected after Freeman struggled (3 of 9 for 17 yards) in Saturday's 51-13 loss at Oklahoma. Wright came in and led Miami to its only touchdown, finishing 7 of 14 for 65 yards.
Wright, a senior who had started the past two years, said his demotion this fall was humbling.
"It was difficult to swallow at first," he said. "But then I sat down and thought about it and decided to keep working and be ready when my number was called. I knew it was only a matter of time."
