Quick Hits: Chizik, Spurrier, UCONN assistants, Strausser

Gene Chizik talks about staff stability: “We're pleased to move forward with a coaching staff that will remain intact for a third straight year. Our staff retention was a huge factor in our National Championship run and will be important as we prepare for 2011 season."

UCONN defensive backs coach Darrell Perkins describes the coaching profession to the Hartford Courant: "Nothing is ever promised to you, and that's just kind of how I live my life. You never take anything for granted. As I always tell my players, just do your best and let God take care of the rest."

UCONN offensive coordinator Joe Moorhead told the Hartford Courant he is still in limbo: "You have a mortgage to pay, bills to take care of, a wife and three kids to provide for, and you just want to make sure as the sole provider to your family unit, you're doing right by them.”

Quoting Steve Spurrier: "We thought it was a good year, but not a great year."

Boise State offensive line coach Chris Strausser has high praise for grad assistant Jeff Cheek: “Like any profession, it's hard to get a job right now. I think he'll have some opportunities over the next few months. He's a very employable guy, and he'll get a job when the right time comes.”
