Houston transfer QB named starter for Hurricanes

If Miami has a football season, D'Eriq King will be the Hurricanes' starting quarterback.

The Hurricanes made the announcement Monday that King, a redshirt senior transfer from Houston, will be the first-string quarterback when -- or if -- the season begins.

Miami coach Manny Diaz made the decision public on the first day of the team's second summer workout session.

For now, Miami is scheduled to begin the season Sept. 5 at Temple. That date is in doubt, of course, because of the coronavirus pandemic and the effect it will have on college football schedules.
