The University of Miami held its first padded practice of the spring Saturday morning and some of the contenders for the quarterback job spoke. So did QB coach Jon Richt.

Here are highlights of what was said:

Coach Jon Richt

On what it will take to win the starting job: “It’s just like we’ve always said, they’ll have to be the guy that not necessarily is the best skill set or anything like that but he’s going to be the most consistent player that’s going to get us in the right play, make the right decisions and he’s going to get us day to day, play by play, he’s going to put us in a position to win. He’s going to take care of the football and be consistent.”

Malik Rosier

(6-1, 215, junior)

“It’s just a quick rotation we’re going through right now but I think they kind of trust me because I did win the 1 (backup) spot last year and just from me being older right now.”

Jack Allison

(6-5, 200, redshirt freshman)

“Going good. We’re all working hard and just working through the installs and we’re all doing pretty well.”

Evan Shirreffs

(6-5, 216, redshirt sophomore)

“It’s not too different. Last year it was for the backup job. This year it’s for the staring job. We’re all working just like we did last year. It’s not like we had to pick it up now because we’ve been working ever since the Richts have been here, ever since we stepped foot on campus.”
