Miami OC Dan Enos 'very, very disappointed' in freshman QB Jarren Williams after Florida loss
The Miami Hurricanes started freshman QB Jarren Williams on Saturday night against Florida, watching as he got sacked 10 times in a 24-20 loss.
However, he managed not to turn the ball over, throwing for 214 yards and a touchdown while completing 19 of his 30 pass attempts.
Still it wasn’t good enough for Miami OC Dan Enos. Enos ripped his young quarterback in comments made on Monday (via the South Florida Sun-Sentinel):
“The first thing is, basically, I grade the guys on either you played well enough for us to win or you didn’t,” Enos said. “And he did not. He did not play well enough for us to win the football game. That’s first and foremost.
“We left a lot of plays on the field. Jarren left a lot of plays on the field. I was very, very disappointed from that standpoint. He did do some good things, but very inconsistent with his pocket posture, very inconsistent with his eyes — watching the rush at times, missing throws and very uncharacteristic of how he had practiced leading up to that.”
Miami’s offensive line didn’t exactly give Williams time to get comfortable, what with the aforementioned 10 sacks and all. Still, Enos — who may have been watching a different game — thought the Hurricanes played well enough to win:
“We just have got to get him to do that from a play-to-play basis,” Enos said, “but it was frustrating from an offensive standpoint because we felt like our team played well enough to win and we didn’t hold up our end of the bargain. Certainly, very disappointed there.”
Williams should have plenty of time to improve, but with these strong comments made by Enos, his confidence may be shot before he has a chance to succeed.
