2018 FAU Spring Football
FAU began “Fourth Quarter” workouts when the team returned to campus for the Spring semester in January. Wearing helmets and shorts, surrounded by high school prospects spending their spring break on the Tom Oxley practice fields, the Owls worked through drills and began working with three new coordinators: Charlie Weis, Jr (offense), Tony Pecoraro (defense) and Jaron Fairman (special teams).
“First day, (it’s) good to be back out here. We have some new guys out here, not just players, but coaches. Of our nine coaches that we had, we lost four of those, lost our two assistant strength coaches to a SEC school. It is part of success when players play well you get rewarded. There is a lot of stuff to work on. I thought the defense had a good day today. Good leadership by those guys and a lot of veterans coming back.”
· 15 new players joined the team for “Spring Drills”
· Six new coaches/analysts were on site
· Players were in helmets and shorts, no pads

He was surprised how easily it can be taken away? This coming from a kid who already got kicked out of Oklahoma? I get he is young and I don't know him, but it sounds to me like he needs a serious attitude adjustment.

I think he sees that Coach K will punish what most don't punish, and that was the "taken away" reference…but I am with you, something still seems array here.
He reminds me of Johhny Manziel.
Head Coach Lane Kiffin
“Practice two: I thought the offense came back with a better day, after struggling in day one. Kinda usually how it happens. Some wind to deal with today which is good, obviously we end up playing in that a lot down here. Guys have good energy. Most guys do at this time without pads and stuff. I’m pleased with their energy so far, execution on defense. We just need to execute a little better on offense. It was good to have Chris (Robison) back out there on offense, really talented, but (he’s) got to make better decisions.”
