The night Jared Green learned that Virginia had hired the innovative Gregg Brandon as its new offensive coordinator, he couldn’t contain his excitement.
In fact, he and Cavalier receivers Dontrelle Inman and Kris Burd stayed up practically all night text messaging each other about what this could mean for the team’s future.
December was a month that the redshirt freshman wideout won’t soon forget for both all the right and wrong reasons. First of all, he had a longer holiday break than he would have liked after Virginia fell short of a bowl bid. Then came news that offensive coordinator Mike Groh had decided to leave the program, followed on the heels of Brandon’s hiring and the announcement that the program’s leading receiver, Kevin Ogletree, was declaring for the NFL Draft.
Talk about a roller coaster of emotions.
