Miami Football: Al Golden says the Hurricanes are open to a QB transfer before season starts


A huge point of emphasis for head coach Al Golden and the Miami Hurricanes heading into the 2014 season is replacing Stephen Morris at the quarterback position. This spot was maybe slated to go to Ryan Williams, however a torn ACL suffered in the spring has derailed those plans for the time being.

With that being said, and with Kevin Olsen now really being the only real option at this point for the ‘Canes under center, Golden addressed the possibility of bringing in a transfer player to maybe help fill the void on the depth chart during the ACC teleconference on Wednesday.

And according to the transcript via College Football Talk, Golden has not closed the door on that option.

“This time of year we always have our eyes open,” Golden said during an ACC coaches conference call Wednesday when asked about the possibility of adding a transfer quarterback to the roster before the fall. Golden said he could not comment on specific names he and his staff may be interested in, due to NCAA rules of course, but Golden’s reluctance to say the quarterback situation is solved was pretty much telling the story.

With Olsen’s inexperience, being redshirted last season, this should maybe not only be something to think about, but a priority for Golden and staff to make some phone calls.
