UH to find ways to get QB Bryson Smith on field

Now Smith enters the season with the likelihood he will be used in multiple roles, including as a punt returner.

“Last year I was going in and really didn’t have a role,” Smith said. “I was new, but now I feel like I’m contributing more to the team with the packages I’m a part of.”

Smith’s biggest impact is expected at receiver, where the Cougars have numbers but little proven experience.
