WOAY – Just five days remain until Charles Huff’s first spring game as Marshall head coach.
The former Alabama assistant wants a lively atmosphere inside Joan C. Edwards Stadium on Saturday, as fans will be allowed inside.
In terms of on-the-field, Huff has now had a few weeks to evaluate last year’s starting quarterback Grant Wells. The rising redshirt sophomore got off to a hot start to 2020, but failed to top 200 yards in the team’s final three games, all losses.
When asked if Wells could become more than a “game manager,” Huff rejected that label.
“He looks like a more confident quarterback. I don’t believe in the verbiage or the title ‘game manager,'” said Huff in a press conference on Monday. “That’s my job. I want him to go out and win football games.”
