UCLA HC Jim Mora says he wants to give sophomore LB Myles Jack a bigger role on offense.
"We would like to expand his role," Mora said. "It’s a delicate dance because he is such a great linebacker. You can’t take away what he does best and make him average at two things." Jack finished last season with 267 yards and seven touchdowns as a running back. He was named the Pac-12’s offensive and defensive freshman of the year. Jack didn't play offense in the Aug. 30 season opener against Virginia, but had three carries and a TD over the weekend against Memphis. "I would be on the headphones with the offense, then flip over to the defense and say, ‘Get Myles ready,’" Mora said of the opener. "Then we would get a first down or score a touchdown before we could send him in there." Mora doesn't believe it will be difficult to get Jack more ingratiated in the offense. "When you’re a ballcarrier, you don’t have to learn the entire scheme," Mora said. "We teach him to memorize what he has to do, then go out and perform." Mon, Sep 8, 2014 06:56:00 PM
