Kirk Herbstreit was among the many to offer an opinion this week following the news that Miami announced that Jarren Williams won the three-man quarterback competition.

As a father himself, and someone who is intimately familiar with college football, on the field and behind the scenes, the ESPN analyst often stands behind his strong opinions. This time, he applauded the approach of Miami and coach Manny Diaz.

“In an era where many Head Coaches are worried about the reaction of the other high profile QB’s (and their Dads) Manny owns and announces it from the rooftops!!,” Herbstreit tweeted. “Love this approach.”

But then he had to defend himself from people who thought he took a shot at Williams, who won the competition over Tate Martell and N’Kosi Perry.

The fallout from this decision largely focused on Martell’s decision to transfer from Ohio State to Miami and not win the QB competition. Herbstreit clarified that his example of high-profile QBs and their Dads may not be going on at Miami, but it’s a reality of the current world of college football. There have been multiple cases across the SEC in recent years ago fathers being involved in scholarship decisions and playing time for their sons.
