Florida’s beleaguered quarterback John Brantley says he is glad Charlie Weis is coming to the Gators and will install a pro-style offense. However the junior says he still not sure he wants to return.
Brantley has told media outlets he and some family members want to sit down with Weis and see what the quarterback’s role might be in the new offense.
It’s not a surprise that Brantley admits he was not happy and didn’t fit into the spread offense run by Gators former head coach Urban Meyer who stepped down this year after six seasons.
Brantley will have to be patient, depending on how things go Weis, who is the offensive coordinator for the Kansas City Chiefs and will remain with them depending on how long their playoff run lasts.
The Gators are thin at quarterback and the future (at least down the road) appears to rest with incoming freshman Jeff Driskel from Oviedo Haggerty High. The 6-4, 230 pound pounder was named the 2010 Maxwell Football Club’s National High School Player of The Year earlier this week. He is a mid-winter enrollee and will be available for this year’s spring practice.
