KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - With much of Tennessee's focus this spring on improving the Volunteers' running game and putting in a new defense, quarterback Tyler Bray is working away a bit under the radar.
The quarterback still is having a good offseason.
Tennessee coaches are pleased with Bray's progress and see him becoming a more vocal leader and a better all-around quarterback.
Bray struggled as usual in the Volunteers' first scrimmage this spring last week.
Coach Derek Dooley said he's not overly concerned about Bray's performance because the emphasis was on running the ball and the defense giving new coverages. That affected the wide receivers who played without Justin Hunter, who was held out as he recovers from the left ACL he tore last September.
