Bush Hamdan, Missouri QB coach, outlines what he's looking for in QB competition
Bush Hamdan, Missouri’s quarterback coach, will be front and center for the Tigers’ QB competition between Brady Cook, Tyler Macon, Sam Horn and Jack Abraham.
The Tigers open fall camp this week, and Hamdan outlined what he’s looking for in the QB competition.
“Decision making and leadership,” he said. “Ultimately, the game always comes down to decision making, who’s going to put our team in the best situations, as you guys know, who’s going to take the chances when the opportunity presents itself, who’s going to take care of the football when they don’t. But then there’s the leadership thing. Ultimately you’ve got a group of 100 guys who are kind of looking at you and going, ‘Is this going to be the guy that’s ready to lead us in good and bad times?’ I think those are probably the 2 biggest things when it’s all said and done.”
Cook last season completed 46 of 58 passes for 345 yards and 2 touchdowns. Macon played in 4 games, and got extended action in a loss at Georgia with Cook while Connor Bazelak was injured.
Cook was 27-for-34 passing for 237 yards and a touchdown in the Armed Forces Bowl loss to Army.
Watch: Starting tomorrow the battle to be #Mizzou‘s starting quarterback will heat up, as fall camp begins.
