Mark Richt announced this afternoon that Miami’s football program is making a change behind center heading into this weekend’s game against Georgia Tech.
The Hurricanes have had quarterback issues all season, with both Malik Rosier and N’Kosi Perry splitting time at the position in recent weeks.
Richt announced this afternoon that he’s making a change: the veteran Rosier is being benched and Perry is starting.
“Mark Richt makes it official: N’Kosi Perry will start this week at Georgia Tech.”
