CHAPEL HILL ó North Carolina coach Butch Davis still isn’t saying who will start at quarterback for the Tar Heels this weekend at Miami.
Davis said redshirt freshman Mike Paulus and third-year junior Cameron Sexton split time with the first-team offense during Tuesday afternoon’s practice. Davis hinted that he wasn’t sure who would start in place of T.J. Yates, who is out for with a fracture in his left ankle.
Yates was injured when he was sacked during the weekend loss to Virginia Tech.
Davis says the Tar Heels will run the same offense regardless of whether Paulus or Sexton start against the Hurricanes. Davis says both players went through a similar situation during spring drills while Yates was sidelined following shoulder surgery.
