IOWA CITY — Ken O’Keefe knows there will come a time when he will know who Iowa’s starting quarterback should be.
Just don’t ask the Hawkeyes’ quarterbacks coach when that time will arrive.
O’Keefe said Wednesday sophomore Nathan Stanley and junior Tyler Wiegers continue to battle “neck and neck’’ for the chance to replace C.J. Beathard behind center and are currently sharing an equal number of reps with the first team as Iowa works its way through spring drills.
“I have no idea how far it will go or when somebody separates totally from the group, but competition is never bad. It will only help us,’’ O’Keefe said.
Returning to Iowa this spring after spending the past five seasons on the Miami Dolphins’ staff, O’Keefe likes the quarterbacks he is working with this spring.
