Tucker is back at LB

Walter Tucker is back at linebacker. Hurlie Brown talked about that, picking up where Mike Barrow left off, and more. Read on to see what he's saying.

On the difference between coaching RBs and LBs:
The biggest thing right now is terminology. Everything is pretty much the same. Even when I was on offense, I still had to have an idea of what they were doing. It’s still a work in progress.

On if recruiting will change for him:
No.

On the linebacker group:
They’re a great group of guys. They work hard, and they love the game. They had a great teacher and so I’m going to try picking up where (Mike Barrow) left off. That will make it easier for me.

On Walter Tucker playing LB now:
That was part of the deal. I said come on Tucker. There’s a lot he can do. He is smart and fast and brings a lot of versatility.
