Georgia’s Three Quarterbacks Starting Over Under New Offensive Coordinator
ATHENS, Ga. (AP) – The challenge of learning new offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer’s playbook has evened Georgia’s three-man quarterback competition.
Brice Ramsey, Faton Bauta and Jacob Park have been given equal chances to win the job in spring practice. The three are trading days with the starters as Schottenheimer installs his offense.
Schottenheimer, the former St. Louis Rams offensive coordinator, said when hired in January he would try to simplify the transition by saving as much terminology as possible from Georgia’s old offense. Instead, the three quarterbacks say they feel they are starting over.
Ramsey, who was the top backup to 2014 senior starter Hutson Mason, said "It’s back to square one."
The change from Mike Bobo to Schottenheimer could be good for Park, who impressed teammates as last year’s scout-team quarterback.
