Missouri’s Marcell Frazier Calls Out Josh Heupel

Missouri Tigers’ linebacker Marcell Frazier is taking aim at departed offensive coordinator Josh Heupel whom Frazier says left the team in a bad position.

Heupel took the head-coaching job at Central Florida and took offensive line coach Glen Elarbee with him to the school.

“Realistically, Heupel left us in a bad position,” Frazier said of Heupel (h/t ESPN). “It is what it is. And Elarbee left us in a bad position. As men they have to look in the mirror. They let a whole bunch of teenage boys down, 18- and 19-year-olds. They left and they have to do what’s best for their family, but I think it showed up a little bit today. We were doing things [on offense] we haven’t done since maybe the Auburn game. It showed up.

“We practiced for almost a whole month without an O-coordinator or an O-line coach after having one of the most dominating offenses in the nation. It’s tough. I believe they let some guys down. They had to do what’s best for them. I don’t quite understand it.”

Foster referenced Scott Frost as someone who did things correctly. Frost is still coaching Central Florida in the Peach Bowl despite taking the Nebraska coaching job.

“So I don’t quite understand all the politics, but it showed up,” Frazier said. “Texas, I don’t believe they had anyone leave their entire staff. We had two offensive coaches leave.”
