Neal Brown Comments on Garrett Greene’s Playing Time

Morgantown, West Virginia – Moments ago on The Neal Brown Show, West Virginia head coach Neal Brown was asked about Garrett Greene’s playing time in future games.

Brown said the following about Greene: “Our goal is to get Garrett in during the first half of the Long Island game this weekend.”

Brown continued: “Look, there was a clear difference between our 1 and 2 quarterbacks during the offseason.  Our #1 was pretty clear.  The #2 quarterback is always the most popular player on team and we wanted to get Greene in in the first game, and this is no knock on Garrett, but the reality is that he wasn’t ready.

We’re going to get him in the first half and depending on how he plays will determine his reps going forward.”

Brown said multiple times during the offseason that Jarret Doege was his team’s most improved player and the clear starter for the team.  After an extremely difficult season opener against Maryland, it appears that Brown is staying with Doege as his starter for the time being.
