DURHAM, N.C. (AP) -- When David Cutcliffe showed up at Duke, he had no idea just how far the Blue Devils were from being competitive.
Since then, they've come so far that his current job looks better to him than the one at Tennessee did.
Cutcliffe is beginning his third season in Durham, and he's aiming to keep the Blue Devils moving toward their first bowl game since 1994.
Duke has won nine games in two years under Cutcliffe after winning a total of eight in the five years before his arrival. And for a change, the Blue Devils weren't picked last in the Coastal Division.
The key position for Duke is at quarterback. Sean Renfree hopes to replace four-year starter Thad Lewis. Renfree worked his way back from a knee injury that ended his redshirt freshman season early.
