BOZEMAN – The Montana State Bobcats are only two practices into spring camp and it’s already clear to see that progress is being made, especially in the quarterback room.

The week before spring camp started, Bobcats head coach Jeff Choate said the biggest focus offensively for MSU will be the pass game. And that starts with two men in the QB room: new pass game coordinator Bob Cole and returning starter Chris Murray.

Bob Cole joined the Cats staff over the winter and has had years of experience in the offensive game, making stops as the offensive coordinator in seven Division One schools before coming to Bozeman. And he’s molded some of the best QB’s in the college game, including Northern Illinois former Heisman Trophy finalist Jordan Lynch in 2013. And he likes what he sees from Murray.

“That’s a good looking choker as far as athletically and everything,” said Cole. “He’s a heck of an athlete and we’ve really developed a good relationship in the month or two that I’ve been here. So I’m excited to work with him. Things are going well right here, we are probably ahead of the curve as far as that goes.”

But Cole is excited about the entire room, including guys like Tucker Rovig. And he’s excited to see what Travis Jonsen can do once he returns from injury.
