Gutierrez to start against Miami of Ohio
ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Matt Gutierrez was named Michigan's starting quarterback Monday.
The junior from California will start Saturday's home game against Miami of Ohio.
Gutierrez is the only one of the three candidates with college experience. After redshirting as a freshman two years ago, he was John Navarre's seldom-used backup last season.
Gutierrez, a mobile quarterback with a solid arm, has not lost a game he started since he was a freshman playing junior varsity football. He starred at DeLaSalle Catholic High, the same school that produced former Wolverines star Amani Toomer -- now a wide receiver with the New York Giants.
