Heupel settling in

This spring was a new experience for former star quarterback Josh Heupel. Heupel was able to work his way into the staff last season when he joined the team before the Holiday Bowl.

But Heupel was able to get more involved with Rhett Bomar and he also was able to groom newcomer Joey Halzle. Heupel spoke with members of the media recently and gave his thoughts on spring practices and how everything turned out as one of the Sooners' newest assistants.

Q: How do you feel about how your quarterbacks were able to progress during the spring?
Josh Heupel:
Both of them have a better understanding of what we're trying to accomplish as we went through the spring. We still have a long ways to go at the quarterback position and as an offense heading into the summer workouts. Both of them have continued to work and gotten better but we need to have great summers if we're going to end up where we need to be next fall.

Q: How about yourself and shaking off the rust of coaching quarterbacks?
Heupel:
I'm glad to be back. We have a lot of great athletes here and a great, young, talented football team. Hopefully we'll be ready to go in the summer.
