The quarterback position has been a debacle for Miami football and coach Mark Richt this season.

Richt has bounced back and forth between last year's starter, fifth-year senior Malik Rosier, and talented redshirt freshman N'Kosi Perry multiple times this season.

Perry was suspended for a game to start the season, but appeared to win the job from Rosier a few weeks later. However, Richt has switched back to the veteran a few times, and the resurfacing of a social media post from September lead some to wonder if Rosier may be the starter for next week's Pinstripe Bowl vs. Wisconsin.

After Miami beat Toledo earlier this year, Perry allegedly posted a video to his Snapchat story depicting two people having sex. According to The Miami Hurricane, it is unclear if Perry was in the video, and neither person's face was shown.

The N'Kosi Perry post is from September, but a screen recording of it started circulating among the university community in late November.

The student paper reached out to the program for comment.

“We are aware of an inappropriate video posted on a social media account associated with one of our student-athletes,” a UM spokesman said in an statement to The Miami Hurricane. “The video has been removed and the posting has been addressed with the student-athlete. We will continue to be committed to high standards of conduct at UM.”

The Miami Hurricane reached out for additional comments, but the UM spokesman declined the request.

This is the second time this year that Perry's social media has gotten him in hot water.

Earlier this year, he posted video to Instagram, showing him riding in a car with a large pile of money on his lap. Richt said that the situation was handled, but Perry was not suspended.

Of the four scholarship quarterbacks on the Hurricanes' roster, Rosier is the only one who has not served a suspension this season.

Redshirt freshman Cade Weldon was suspended for four-games at mid-season, and freshman Jarren Williams missed the Virginia Tech game. Williams explored a transfer earlier this month, but will stay at Miami.

Wisconsin will be without its starting quarterback in the bowl game against Miami. Alex Hornibrook has been dealing with concussion symptoms, so Jack Coan will start the game.
