Morgantown, West Virginia – Earlier in the week 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.”
Today, Brown said he would get Greene in early today, playing him on the 3rd possession of the game.
Brown said backup QB Garrett Greene is going to play the third offensive series this afternoon …

Although Doege struggled in the first game against Maryland, Brown said there isn’t any quarterback competition.
“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. However, today is a perfect opportunity for Greene to prove that he can lead this team.
