Josh Heupel sends a message to reporters
- by Administrator 2 years ago
Oklahoma co-offensive coordinator / quarterbacks coach Josh Heupel met with the media for ten minutes on Saturday.
The reporters wanted to know a lot, but to say the least, Heupel made it pretty clear he’s not really in to giving a lot of information.
Heupel (33) was friendly, articulate, humble, well-spoken, and tight lipped. Perhaps “vague” would be the best way to describe Heupel’s approach.
Not yet understanding? Think about the 100% dead opposite of Derek Dooley in terms of giving out information.
For example, “So Josh, what do you bring to the team different as a play-caller than Kevin Wilson?”
Heupel’s answer, “To compare the two, I can’t do that. I think that who and what we are as an offense isn’t going to dramatically change. We want to play with multiple personnel groupings, we want to maintain some form of balance to be able to run the football effectively, play-action pass, we want to move the pocket, we want to play up tempo. So some of those things are going to be similarities, but during the course of preparation, game planning during the week, and what type of situations you want to put your players in on game day, there is going to be some differences throughout that.”
“Ultimately, we have a great offensive staff room. We have a great chemistry up there. It’s never been about one guy. And really excited about the way we are working together and trying to build this unit.”
So coach, are we going to see some of those diamond sets and multiple tight end sets that Kevin Wilson liked?
Heupel said, “Our personnel variations are going to determine on the guys we think can play at a high level. We want to have balance. We want to be multiple in our personnel groupings. We are going to be as multiple as we can be with the guys we feel are going to play at a high enough level that will give us the best chance to win. We are trying to find a way to get the ball into the hands of our most explosive players.”
Just a guy who wants to coach some ball and help the program with a national championship…
To get our drift, listen to the last minute of Heupel's media session.
