Kolney Cassel, a backup quarterback for UH last season, will serve as an intern for the Warriors.
It should be an easy transition for Cassel, who spent every day in the quarterback room in meetings, video reviews and exchanging ideas.
Even before his stint as a graduate transfer, Cassel had deep knowledge of the Warriors’ run-and-shoot offense. He began his NCAA career as a quarterback at SMU under June Jones.
Cassel has proven to be a helpful teammate. Prior to the game against Wyoming, Cassel portrayed Cole McDonald during warmups to not tip off the starting QB’s injury. On Tuesday, he went to UH’s pro day with the specific intent of being the designated passer for John Ursua. In order to be allowed to participate in the field drills, he had to participate in sprints and other activities.
