Kentucky OC Liam Coen discusses play of Will Levis: 'I think the guys are starting to rally around him even more'
Kentucky quarterback Will Levis has shown well during his brief time with the Wildcats.
Through a pair of games, the Penn State transfer has done just about exactly what has been asked of him, throwing for 546 yards, 5 touchdowns versus 2 interceptions, and completing nearly 64 percent of his passes. He’s surrounded by a mix of offensive weapons as well: Chris Rodriguez, Josh Ali, and Wan’Dale Robinson have all been key to Kentucky’s 2-0 start.
The Wildcats take on Chattanooga in Lexington on Saturday, and as they prepare for the Mocs, offensive coordinator Liam Coen on Saturday talked about how his quarterback has been progressing.
“I was pleased with him (after the win over Missouri),” Coen said, according to CatsPause. “He played really hard and really tough. I think the guys are starting to rally around him even more.”
Coen said that Levis could stand to take a little zing off some of his passes to compensate for his arm strength.
“It’s those kind of short, intermediate in breakers that we need to continue to work on,” he explained. “We worked on them a ton today. Just try to get him to think a little more head height with that soft ball there as opposed to a rip-it throw. He’ll get it. He’ll be all right.”
