Richardson confused, Stinespring explains changes, Dan Disch on his plan

Miami (FL) running backs coach Terry Richardson confused by decision of previous staff: “My thinking about that is, and I told Storm the same thing, with the amount of work he got last year, with the guys they had, he would have been better off redshirting.”

“If you burn [a redshirt year], he’s probably got to get a little bit more work than nine carries. …If you burn it, you’re burning it for a reason with a guy that young. That’s just my opinion. I’m not knocking [the previous coaching staff]. They probably had their reasons, whatever it may be. That’s just how I see the situation.”

Virginia Tech offensive coordinator / tight ends / tackles coach Brian Stinespring talks about staff moves: "I think it’s one of those situations that presents itself that you study and look at yourself and address what’s best for your program. How can you improve your program? What needs to be done to enhance your program? About three or four indicating factors within our quarterback system, with additional responsibilities and endeavors, I think it fits us right now. I think it’s the best for us right now."

"In the final analysis, that’s what you’re looking to do, what’s best. What’s best for your program and the young men you’re entrusted to put in a position for success. That’s No. 1. That’s who we are, what we do. This is one of those areas we looked into not for the first time, this is not a new area, we’ve discussed it before, it is not a world changing event in any way shape or form."

Southern Miss co-defensive coordinator / safeties coach Dan Disch says the Golden Eagles “D” will attack and dictate: "I get tired of getting dictated to. These modern offenses, man, they kind of tell you what to do. We're going to try to tell them. We're going to try to dictate to them more than being dictated to."

"I can close my eyes and visualize what I want. I want what all these fans want. I want a defense that runs around and is aggressive and rough, don't let them get in the end zone.

"We're going to attack, come from all different areas. We're not going to sit in anything for very long. We're going to try to be multiple and dictate to them."
