ULM makes a switch at QB
By Graham Watson
Louisiana-Monroe coach Todd Berry promised to shake things up in his first spring and that included the depth chart.
Redshirt freshman Kolton Browning has supplanted senior Trey Revell as the starting quarterback for the Warhawks. ULM announced the news by releasing its depth chart Tuesday morning.
The move seemed to be imminent when Browning started last week’s spring game with the first team. He completed 12 passes for 136 yards and the game’s only passing touchdown.
Berry noted that both players had their ups and downs during spring practice.
“That’s what’s happened all spring is they’ve all had their moments – good and bad,” Berry told the Monroe News-Star. “We’ve got to obviously get that bad out of them, but competition is a wonderful thing. I think that continues to show. You can mix those guys on and throw them in s sack and throw one out and would end up being OK, but in the same sense there’s some things we’ve got to get corrected.”
Last season, Revell was the team’s primary starter and played in all but two games. He completed 121-of-210 passes for 1,739 yards, 12 touchdowns and 12 interceptions.
