The start of the 2017 season is just around the corner and Miami football coach Mark Richt seems to have plenty of work to do.
When speaking to the media following practice this week, Richt strayed away from his generally calm demeanor to sound off on his disappointment with his offensive unit.
The Hurricanes struggled with their one-minute drill which left Richt saying everyone needs to step up, including himself.
“It looked like we didn’t coach one down,” Richt said, via Susan Degnan of the Miami Herald. “We have meetings to cover it. We had walk-throughs to cover it. We jogged through it two days ago. We jogged through it again today. Told everybody exactly what to do, and it didn’t happen.
“Plus, we can’t even get our pylons in the right spot because there are landmarks for us to make decisions on certain plays. … So everybody around here had got to do their job, OK? And right now it’s not happening. And I’m part of it, OK? I’m leading it so, it’s on me. But I promise you it’s going to be on everybody else, too.”
Richt is set to enter his second season leading his alma mater, so he’s hoping that the team will improve from last season’s 9-4 record.
There is plenty of talent in South Beach, they will just need to get their act together and cut down on the simple mistakes.
Miami kicks off its 2017 season on Sept. 2 against Bethune-Cookman.
