The most important position on the football field is quarterback.
Struggling teams generally hold bad quarterbacks and vice versa. Quarterback play is arguably the biggest factor in giving football teams the best chance to win and Fedora knows this.
Fedora is also no stranger in helping to develop elite quarterbacks that know how to win and execute on the field. All of his last three coaching stints produced great collegiate quarterbacks.
Florida Gators (Offensive Coordinator): Chris Leak
Leak took over the starting job for the Gators in his freshman year under Fedora and proved his skill quickly, earning multiple nods for Freshman All-America teams.
In his sophomore season, and Fedora's last at Florida, Leak exploded onto the college scene by throwing for over 3,100 yards and 29 touchdowns, earning himself a 145.0 quarterback rating.
Leak went on to lead the Gators to a national championship.
Oklahoma State Cowboys (Offensive Coordinator): Zac Robinson
In Fedora's last year as offensive coordinator for the Cowboys, quarterback Zac Robinson took over as starter in his second game.
Robinson finished the season throwing for over 2,800 yards and 23 touchdowns. He also finished with a quarterback rating of 149.0.
Robinson is now in the NFL.
Southern Miss Golden Eagles (Head Coach): Austin Davis
Austin Davis was a walk-on quarterback who has started all four years under Fedora's tutelage. Davis is a great game manager and an extremely smart quarterback.
Davis now holds most of Southern Miss' all-time quarterback records and is on pace to break even more.
