MONROE, La. (AP) — As Louisiana-Monroe coach Todd Berry prepares his team for 2014, one of his top priorities is settling on a new quarterback to take over for one of the best to ever play the position for the Warhawks.
So far, North Carolina State transfer Pete Thomas looks like the leading candidate to replace Kolton Browning, who accounted for about 12,000 yards of offense and 99 touchdowns during his career.
Berry says ULM will have "a little bit of a new identity" on offense and the Warhawks will have to "rely on more of our players to make plays this year."
Should Thomas win the job, he'll see an ACC opponent in his first game. ULM begins its season Aug. 28 in a Thursday night home game against Wake Forest.
