Jeff Quinn


Jeff Quinn


Nomination(s): 2009

Quinn's 2009 season at Cincinnati shows that loyalty and experience can be a winning combination. A 26 year veteran of the college game, Quinn has spent 21 of those seasons working with Bearcats Coach Brian Kelly. Cincinnati has taken off under Kelly and Quinn, with the Bearcats undefeated and aiming for the first perfect season in the program's modern era.

Quinn's offense, a rapid-fire Spread attack, has been one of the best in college football in recent years. That's been true again in 2009, with the Bearcats averaging 322  passing yards per game with 33 passing touchdowns.

Quinn has kept the Cincinnati offense humming even after a mid-season injury to quarterback Tony Pike forced Cincinnati to start backup Zach Collaros for three games.
