It was a presidential Wednesday morning at Greentree Practice Field.
New UM president Julio Frenk met with the team for about six minutes prior to the start of Wednesday's drills. First he spoke to the coaches and players. Then, he put on a Canes jersey (No. 1) and posed for photos with the seniors. He was given an autographed football from the team.
Frenk did not speak to reporters, but we did shoot pictures of his meeting with the players and team.
Frenk was on the field for about six minutes. Did not take questions from media. pic.twitter.com/tEn83V3f1b— Tim Reynolds (@ByTimReynolds) August 19, 2015
I didn't notice it upon first glance, but Frenk was actually given an old Nike jersey. I'm sure once UM's new Adidas jerseys arrive it will be switched out.
Here's what Frenk tweeted out two days ago when he arrived on campus at UM for his first official day on the job.
As I arrive to @univmiami, I feel like a freshman myself, excited to join the members of this remarkable community in a common journey.— Julio Frenk (@julio_frenk) August 17, 2015
For you football fans, I only noticed two players in red non-contact jerseys this morning. Those were receivers Malcolm Lewis and Braxton Berrios.
There also was some interesting music selections being played. It sounded like someone raided the CD collection of running backs coach Tim "Ice" Harris.
