Michigan OC Josh Gattis discusses juggling act of playing 2 QBs throughout the season
The offense for Michigan has been rolling this season. While the offense has been highly aggressive in their rushing game, the quarterback in Cade McNamara has been an effective game manager. Offensive coordinator Josh Gattis has also used true freshman and former 5-star prospect J.J. McCarthy in multiple games this season.
Gattis was asked about the quarterback’s role to the team in which he spared no detail on how he prepares his players and what he expects from them. Gattis has said that he prepares for McCarthy to be ready to step in. He continues to compliment McNamara as being an unselfish and determined leader of the offense for Michigan.
