The Chicago Bears announced Monday morning that No. 2 overall draft pick Mitchell Trubisky will replace Mike Glennon as the team’s starting quarterback for its Week 5 game against Minnesota next Monday night.
Naturally, Trubisky’s former coach, North Carolina head coach Larry Fedora, was asked about last year’s signal-caller at his media conference on Monday.
Fedora said he doesn’t expect the big stage to change the way Trubisky plays.
“I’ve got a feeling who he’ll be. He’ll be Mitch Trubisky. He’ll be the same level-headed guy that he always is, he’ll prepare himself and he’ll be ready to go,” Fedora said.
Fedora added that he hadn’t talked with Trubisky since hearing the news that he would start, but the two have spoken recently.
“He’s been wanting to be the starter since the day he left here, so I’m sure he’s excited,” Fedora said.
While Fedora is surely rooting for his former quarterback, he said he’ll likely be game-planning for the Tar Heels’ game against Virginia on Monday night, so he probably won’t see much of Trubisky’s first start.
