A glaring hole atop Jeff Quinn's depth chart has finally been filled. After a summer of two-a-days and team meetings, Buffalo's head football coach announced that sophomore Jerry Davis will quarterback the Bulls' offense this season. "Right now, based upon all the time I've had to evaluate Jerry against the other quarterbacks, he really seems to be the most stable guy for us," Quinn said.
Expectations for the football team were high last season following the first Mid-American Conference Championship in team history.After a promising opening victory against UTEP, however, the Bulls dropped four straight games, which all but deflated them the rest of the way.
Sophomore linebacker Darius Willis, as well as freshmen defensive linemen Matt Hornbuckle and Albert Sparks, have quit the football team, thus bringing the total number of nine players to leave the program since new head coach Jeff Quinn's arrival.
For two months last summer, Lee Nickell made his case to become Buffalo's men's tennis head coach. Former coach Sherif Zaher resigned in April to return to Egypt, and Athletic Director Warde Manuel's search for a replacement went national. Manuel was determined to find the guy who would make Buffalo's tennis program relevant.
