Colt works out in California while preparing for the next stage of his career
Colt Brennan has spent the time since the Jan. 1 Sugar Bowl getting ready for the next phase of his football career. He hopes the upcoming visit to the Gulf Coast is more successful than his last.
The Heisman finalist is working out at Orange Coast College near his Irvine, Calif., home in preparation for the Senior Bowl a week from tomorrow in Mobile, Ala.
"It's a brand-new facility and it's got everything I need," Brennan said during a phone call yesterday.
Brennan also said he has been invited to participate in a Quarterback Challenge event that will be held in conjunction with the Super Bowl later this month in Phoenix.
He said he has put behind him the pain and disappointment of being sacked eight times in a 41-10 loss to Georgia in the Sugar Bowl.
"I have no regrets; it's something I'll cherish forever," Brennan said.
In other UH football news yesterday, new head coach Greg McMackin had a full day of work getting ready for the first of three weekends of recruit visits before the Feb. 6 national letter of intent signing day.
McMackin, named as June Jones' successor Wednesday, is still working on putting his staff of assistant coaches together.
"Everyone has to re-apply," he said.
It is expected that Cal Lee (linebackers, defensive coordinator), Ron Lee (receivers, offensive coordinator), George Lumpkin (defensive ends) and Rich Miano (defensive backs) will be retained from the current staff, and former UH players Nick Rolovich (QBs) and Brian Smith (offensive line) will join the staff.
