GAINESVILLE -- Amid questions about how practice snaps would be split and who would start at quarterback Saturday at Florida State, UF offensive coordinator Brent Pease affirmed Tuesday it’s Jeff Driskel’s job should he be healthy enough to play.
“Jeff’s our guy. He’s the guy,” he said. “It’s just a matter of how he feels going into this. It’s not a controversy or a battle again. That’s not the issue.”
Sophomore Jacoby Brissett, who competed with Driskel for the starting job in spring and fall camp, played the whole game Saturday against Jacksonville State, completing 14 of 22 passes for 154 yards and a touchdown in the 23-0 win. But if Driskel is healthy, then Brissett’s role will be primarily as a backup.
Pease would not speculate when asked if Driskel could play if he wasn’t 100 percent.
“I don’t know even know what percentages would be — it’s whether he can go out and play,” Pease said. “He feels good right now.”
