Apparently red isn’t a very becoming color on Tyrod Taylor. At least in Frank Beamer’s eyes.
Following Saturday’s upset loss to East Carolina, Beamer announced at his Tuesday news conference that Sean Glennon and Tyrod Taylor will both see time at quarterback from here on out.
Beamer would not say who would start Saturday’s home opener against Furman or how he will use either quarterback.
The plan going into the season was to play Glennon, a fifth-year senior, and redshirt Taylor, a sophomore. But Beamer said Tuesday that the overall inexperience of the offense made it necessary to get another playmaker in the backfield. He said this wasn’t an offense that could throw it 40 times and win. Taylor’s running ability will give Tech more options as it did last year when Taylor rushed for over 400 yards.
Beamer said he informed Glennon of the decision Monday and that Glennon was very disappointed. Taylor is excited, Beamer said. Neither quarterback will be available for interviews this week.
Glennon threw two interceptions in Saturday’s 27-22 loss to East Carolina.
