Sims and Coker were also listed as co-starters last week. Sims completed 24 of 33 passes for 250 yards against the Mountaineers, while Coker did not attempt a pass.
Coker transferred from Florida State after battling Jameis Winston for the starting job last preseason and completing 18 passes for 250 yards in relief of the Heisman Trophy winner. Senior Sims completed 18 passes for 167 yards and two touchdowns and added 61 yards on the ground.
Sims or Coker are replacing A.J. McCarron, a three-year starter who was selected in the fifth round of the 2014 draft.
