Hurricanes head coach Mark Richt defends playcalling

Miami prepares to face Duke

Miami head coach Mark Richt watches over the Hurricanes during practice in preparation for Saturday's game against the Duke Blue Devils at Hard Rock Stadium.

CORAL GABLES, Fla. – Miami Hurricanes head coach Mark Richt is not willing to blame the playcalling for the team's struggles.

Richt addressed reporters ahead of the team's homecoming game Saturday against Duke.

"There's nothing wrong with the plays being called, quite frankly," Richt said. "What's wrong is we haven't executed well enough."

Miami has struggled in back-to-back road games at Virginia and Boston College.

The 'Canes started the season with Malik Rosier at quarterback, made the switch to redshirt freshman N'Kosi Perry and then went back to Rosier.

Rosier, a senior, has not been able to jumpstart the offense.

"The bottom line is, if we looked at the tape and said these plays got no chance of success, then I would agree," Richt said. "The plays have a chance for success if everybody does what they're supposed to do."

Miami (5-3, 2-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) returns to Hard Rock Stadium at 7 p.m. Saturday.
