Heading into the 2014 season, the Michigan quarterback situation still looks to be up in the air. In one end you have highly touted sophomore Shane Morris and on the other end you have fifth-year senior Devin Gardner. But with camp a week away has anyone of the two emerged as the favorite to take the reigns as Michigan’s starting QB in 2014?
Well, from what Brady Hoke is spouting at Big Ten Media Days in Chicago it sounds like the race is a dead heat.
“I think (Morris) has a legitimate chance (to win the job), but I would also say that Devin’s done a nice job of working every day to try and solidify that,” Hoke said Monday during Big Ten media days in Chicago. “To some degree, we all need motivation.
“But Devin did a nice job, in my opinion, of processing his performance from a year ago (from both a positive and negative standpoint).”
According to Nick Baumgardner of Mlive.com, both Morris and Garnder have been working with newly hired OC and QB’s coach Doug Nussmeier as he continues to implement his own system into the Michigan game plans.
The QB decision though may be one of Hoke’s biggest this offseason though as the 2014 year could be a make or break year for the head coach.
