Another change at quarterback coming?

|

He didn’t come right out and say it but UConn interim head coach T.J. Weist just might be planning another change at quarterback.
Whether he returns to original starter, junior Chandler Whitmer, or makes a move to go with redshirt freshman Casey Cochran, all depends on what Weist and his coaching staff decide in the wake of four straight losses where the offense — under the direction of starter true freshman Tim Boyle — has struggled mightily to put the ball in the end zone.
Boyle – who is looked at by many to be the long-term future of the program – has looked overwhelmed at times in losses to South Florida, Cincinnati, Central Florida and Louisville. He’s thrown eight interceptions, completed just 43.9 percent of his passes and has been sacked 18 times.
For the season, he’s just 58 of 132 for 619 yards.
Because of that, and the fact that the Huskies offense has scored just 53 points in those four games (13.25) Weist is facing a critical decision regarding Boyle and playing him the rest of the way.
“When you say that you’ve committed to him, I’m not really committed to any player to keep him in the game no matter how he’s playing,” Weist said Satuday in his post-game conference call with reporters. “I think that he’s (Boyle) got to do a better job of throwing the football, handling the offense and directing the offense. He’s just got to get better at it.”
