Florida interim head coach Randy Shannon said it's time for Florida quarterback Malik Zaire to take the next step.
Randy Shannon said Malik Zaire has to play well against South Carolina to give Florida a shot at winning and he wants Malik Zaire to be more consistent throughout practice this week, as the Gators prepare for South Carolina.
“Overall game,” Randy Shannon said. “Every week you want a quarterback to improve his overall game. He did a nice job, but now he’s got to do a great job this upcoming week. Today was the first day coming back (Tuesday) as far as putting in the whole game plan, what we’re going to do. He’s got to be consistent tomorrow, build on what we did today and work on it tomorrow.”
Against Missouri, Malik Zaire completed 13 of 19 passes for 158 yards and one interception.
Randy Shannon said Malik Zaire didn't do anything to hurt Florida during the Missouri game.
“He didn’t do anything to hurt us,” Shannon said. “He did a nice job of getting the ball down the field. We just have to build on what he’s done.”
