Report: Miami would not mind if Jarren Williams transfers
The Miami Hurricanes suffered an embarrassing loss on Thursday, falling 14-0 to Louisiana Tech in the Independence Bowl. The Canes made it clear they did not want to be there, which was confirmed by quarterback Jarren Williams.
Williams told Don Bailey Jr. on WQAM: “We were going through the motions.”
A true freshman, Williams went 9/20 for 94 yards and an interception before being benched in the fourth quarter. N’Kosi Perry and even Tate Martell saw action at quarterback after Williams.
Miami finished the season 6-7 and is in a bad spot. They are expected to part ways with offensive coordinator Dan Enos. The Miami Herald’s Barry Jackson says offensive line coach Butch Barry’s job is also in jeopardy.
Jackson further reported that Miami would not mind if Williams looked to transfer.
Williams won the job as a true freshman but had several lackluster games. He finished with 19 touchdown passes and seven interceptions on the season. He was recruited by previous Hurricanes head coach Mark Richt.
Despite the terrible season, Miami’s athletic director is standing behind coach Manny Diaz.
