Joey Halzle enters his third season at Tennessee.
Halzle served as quarterbacks coach from 2021-22 for the Vols. He is offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach in 2023.
Halzle met with media on Thursday and discussed his first fall training camp as offensive coordinator.
“As far as the game planning, I said it when I first took this role, we’ve all done that all together,” Halzle said. “That’s never just been one person’s show who says this is how we’re doing it. It’s extremely communal. The staff has been awesome around me. It’s been a great transition. It hasn’t been like drinking through a fire hose. There are more (responsibilities), as far as going into meeting time. I have to have everything prepped on the front end. I can’t just show up and take my notes, can’t just stare at my quarterback as we’re watching tape and seeing how that’s going. You got to see how everybody’s doing and make sure the whole thing hangs together perfectly.
“As far as an adjustment, also you got to talk a whole lot more. You got to talk the whole meeting. I’m kind of done talking during the day. I’m not a big talker. That’s the main part of it, the front end everything is on you to make sure it’s prepared so everybody else can have a smooth transition through their day.”
