Louisville's Strong: Bridgewater a QB, not a coach

LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- Teddy Bridgewater can throw the ball all over the field and celebrate with fans in the stands. There's still some things the Louisville quarterback can't do.

Waving the punt team off the field is one.

Bridgewater tried just that late in the first half against Eastern Kentucky on fourth-and-2, and coach Charlie Strong made it clear the junior doesn't have that authority no matter how highly ranked the Cardinals might be or how much of a Heisman Trophy candidate his quarterback might be.

Strong says he told his quarterback they have enough coaches on staff.

Bridgewater threw for 397 yards and four touchdowns in the seventh-ranked Cardinals' 44-7 win over Eastern Kentucky on Saturday. Louisville plays Kentucky next.
