Coker gives Wright a vote of confidence

Larry Coker Q&A following the team's Sept. 20 practice

Opening statement: We did a lot of situational things (today). It was a pretty physical day. Guys worked hard. Coaches coached with a lot of energy and guys were giving great effort in practice. Sometimes you have to push and challenge. Guys did that today, were challenging each other. I feel we had a good day today.

Q: Who is getting most of the reps at No. 1 tailback right now?

Coker: Charlie Jones and Javarris James.

Q: Is Tyrone Moss working in with the first team also?

Coker: A little bit.

Q: How do you feel Kyle Wright has played? He's only thrown one touchdown pass. Is that indicative of how he's played?

Coker: No, not at all. He's played pretty well. In the game last week against Louisville he played pretty well, was a 60 percent passer. He created some big play opportunities. I think he's played pretty well.
