Football: Friday quick hitters

Some quick notes from this morning’s practice:

  • Linebacker Mychal Kendricks sat out with back spasms. Jeff Tedford didn’t think it was something that would linger.
  • Tedford said Josh Hill won the starting spot at free safety because of his understanding of the┬ádefense. He said defensive coordinator Clancy Pendergast recommended he move to safety from cornerback so he could be a quarterback on the field.
  • Add yet another true freshman to the list of non-redshirts: Tedford said safety Michael Coley will be in the rotation, probably as a nickel back.
