You may call it coincidence, but I think the fact that James Franklin is off to a good start in his senior season as Mizzou’s quarterback has a lot to do with coach Andy Hill, who moved from wide receivers coach to QB coach with the departure of David Yost.

There are other factors that come into play. A healthier offensive line, a healthier Franklin himself, another year to mature and develop, plus a visit he made to QB guru George Whitfield this offseason.

What coach Hill has been able to do is take what James learned this offseason in terms of technique and footwork and coach back to those principles. Hill explains how his relationship has changed with Franklin.
