So, what’s a QB guru and what in the world does it have to do with college football?
Well, a QB guru is most often a positional coach who doesn’t have a spot on an actual team’s coaching staff.
The guru offers his specialized skills and services to QBs from every level in the form of one-on-one training or “private lessons” that either prepare a kid for the next level or attempt to improve his skills at the level at which he is currently playing.
Though he may spend his days working at a number of QB camps held throughout the country, when the guru has properly established himself he either secures a spot at or establishes his own, permanent organization that trains QBs full-time.
In the specific case of college football, the guru could work with HS kids working their way towards national signing day, he could help hone skills of current collegiate passers, or, he could be the guy who gets ex-college gridders ready for the NFL draft.
