Daniel Colt McCoy[1] (born September 5, 1986) is an American football quarterback for theCleveland Browns of the National Football League (NFL). He was drafted by the Browns in the third round of the 2010 NFL Draft, after playing college football for the University of Texas at Austin.
McCoy was the starting quarterback for the Longhorns from 2006–2009 and won the 2008 Walter Camp Award and was the 2008 Heisman Trophy runner-up.[2][3] McCoy is second to Boise's State'sKellen Moore in games won by a NCAA Division I quarterback. In his senior year, he won 13 of the top 15 major college player awards including quarterback of the year, offensive player of the year and outstanding football player of the year.
After sitting out the 2005 Longhorn season as a redshirt, McCoy was the starting quarterback for the2006 Longhorn team.[4][5] On November 4, 2006, McCoy threw his 27th touchdown pass in a win against Oklahoma State, to take sole possession of the Texas school record for most touchdowns ever thrown by a quarterback in a single season.[6] Subsequently, in the 2006 Alamo Bowl on December 30, McCoy threw two touchdowns against University of Iowa to tie Nevada's David Neillfor second place for freshman touchdowns in a single season.[7] Also during the 2006 season, McCoy was named College Football News Big 12 Player of the Year and was named the quarterback to their "All Freshman Team".[8] Injuries caused him to miss portions of the final tworegular season games, but was able to play for the entire duration of the Longhorns' bowl game.
Leading the 2007 Longhorns, McCoy was somewhat less consistent. Through the first five games he threw nine interceptions—two more than he threw in the entire 2006 season.[9] He went on to throw 18 interceptions during the 2007 season.
Leading the 2008 Texas Longhorn football team, McCoy and the Longhorns began the season with 8 straight wins, including a win over then #1 Oklahoma, #6 Oklahoma State and #11 Missouri. His performance helped the Longhorns rise at one point to the #1 ranking in the national polls,[10]although UT lost to Texas Tech University and finished ranked third in the BCS standings.[11] In 2008 McCoy set school records for most career touchdown passes,[12] most touchdown passes in a season,[13] most total touchdowns by a Texas player,[14] most career wins,[15] and most career passing yards.[15] In addition to setting passing records, McCoy led the team with 561 yards rushing and 11 rushing touchdowns, establishing a reputation as a dual threat quarterback.[16] McCoy was named the 2008 AP Big 12 Offensive Player of the Year.[17]



[edit]Early life

McCoy was born in Hobbs, New Mexico.[18] He is the eldest of three children born to Steven Brad McCoy and Debra Kay (Woodruff) McCoy. He attendedJim Ned High School in Tuscola, Texas,[19] population 714,[18] where he was coached in football by his father, Brad McCoy. He achieved several distinctions as a high school player, including two-time Associated Press 2A Offensive MVP and First-team All-state selection.[19] Over his career, he completed 536-of-849 passes (63.1%) for 9,344 yards[20] and 116 TDs.[19] He ranks as the all-time leading passer in Texas Division 2A high school history and is fourth overall in Texas high school history.[21] McCoy also served as Jim Ned High School's punter as a junior and senior.[22] During his sophomore year, McCoy was also playing free safety. However, after he suffered a concussion while tackling 215-pound Bangs High School running back Jacoby Jones (not to be confused with the Houston Texans wide receiver of the same name), his father decided not to let him play defense anymore. At the time Jim Ned was 8–0, but as McCoy missed the next two games due to the concussion, Jim Ned's season unraveled.[23] McCoy also played in the 2003 Texas 2A State Championship against the San Augustine Wolves. Jim Ned lost 28–7.

[edit]College career

McCoy attended the University of Texas at Austin, where he played for coach Mack Brown's Texas Longhorns football team from 2005 to 2009.

[edit]2005 season

As a freshman, he was given a redshirt year so he did not play during the team's 2005 national championship season. He served as the quarterback for the scout team in practice against the starting defense. During this time, Matt McCoy (no relation) was officially listed as the number three quarterback behindVince Young and Matt Nordgren. When Brown chose to play Matt McCoy[24] in four separate game situations where Texas had a commanding lead, confusion arose as to which McCoy was in the game. Many sportscasters mistakenly referred to Matt McCoy as Colt McCoy, as Colt was the more widely known player.[25] The following year, with Young forgoing his senior year to enter the NFL and Nordgren graduating, the position of starting quarterback for the defending National Champion Texas Longhorns came down to a competition between red-shirt freshman Colt McCoy and true freshman newcomerJevan Snead.[26]

[edit]2006 season

After winning out a close competition with Jevan Snead, McCoy became the 2006 starting quarterback for the University of Texas. The season opener saw McCoy lead the Longhorns to a 56–7 victory over North Texas, throwing for three touchdowns and rushing a yard for another, while throwing no interceptions. He was 12-19 in passing, and ran for 27 yards to help set up a touchdown. In only his second pass as a college quarterback McCoy threw a 60 yard touchdown pass. He was the first Texas freshman quarterback to start and win a season-opening game since Bobby Layne in 1944.[18] The next week, the Longhorns faced #1 Ohio State at home. McCoy went 19-32, 156 yards, one TD, and one INT while rushing four times for a total of eight yards. Ohio State defeated the Longhorns 24–7, ending the Longhorns 21-game winning streak.
Following wins over RiceIowa State, and Sam Houston State, McCoy got his first win over a ranked team, as well as his first come-from-behind victory, when he led the Longhorns over rival Oklahoma 28–10 in the Red River Shootout. McCoy threw for two touchdowns in the game.[27] The two touchdowns by McCoy gave him 12 touchdown passes for the season, tied for third with Longhorn passer James Brown in the list of most touchdowns by a Texas freshman.[28]
On October 14, 2006 McCoy threw a Texas record six touchdown passes in the win against Baylor.[29][30] The previous record of five touchdown passes had been held by James Brown (set vs. Baylor in 1994) and Chris Simms (vs. Oklahoma State in 2001). On October 25, 2006, he was 9th in the nation with a quarterback rating of 165.4.
In the 2006 Oklahoma State game McCoy threw for his 27th passing touchdown of the season, giving him sole possession of the single-season Texas record and putting him two TD's shy of the NCAA single season record for freshman quarterbacks (29).[31] Coincidentally, this 27th pass was also for 27 yards.
During the November 11, 2006, game against Kansas State, McCoy suffered a stinger shoulder injury[32][33][34] while rushing for a touchdown on the opening drive against Kansas State.[35] Snead came in and played the remainder of the game. The Longhorns fell behind by as much as 21 points before Snead brought them back to within 3, finally falling in an upset by the Wildcats 45–42. There was speculation that Snead might be the starter for the final regular season game, because it was unknown whether McCoy would return for the Longhorns season closer against rival Texas A&M on November 24, 2006.[36][37][38] However, McCoy was cleared to play the game against the Aggies.[39]

With 20 seconds remaining in the Lone Star Showdown versus the Aggies, McCoy was injured by a "vicious, stadium-hushing tackle"[40] as Aggie defensive end Michael Bennett connected with his helmet against McCoy's upper body after McCoy had thrown an incomplete pass.[41] Replays showed both on television and in the stadium revealed the hit might have included "helmet-to-helmet"[42] contact which is illegal in NCAA football only if done intentionally,[43] but no flag was thrown. When the replay was shown in the stadium, the Longhorn fans erupted in boos[44] before lapsing back into silence as McCoy lay on the ground writhing for ten minutes before being taken off the field on a cart.[45] Mack Brown said after the game "I didn't see it, but it sounded like 88,000 (fans) thought it was dirty."[41][44] Fellow Longhorn Selvin Young said he thought the hit was a clean "textbook" hit.[46] McCoy was taken to Breckenridge Hospital where he spent more than three hours undergoing an evaluation that included an X-RayMRI, and a CAT scan.[41][47]Longhorns trainer Kenny Boyd said the injury was a severe pinched nerve in McCoy's neck.[41][47] Boyd said that McCoy was expected to make a full recovery, but no timetable was set for McCoy to return to play.[41][47] The injury to McCoy came one game-clock minute after an A&M player, #91 Kellen Heard had been ejected from the game for vicious blindside block on McCoy after he threw an interception, which was ruled excessive.[48][49][50] An X-Ray, MRI exam and CT scan showed "no structural damage to McCoy's neck or shoulder", said Dr. Carey Windler, the team's orthopedic surgeon.
On December 1, 2006, the Longhorns issued a statement confirming that back-up quarterback Jevan Snead had left the team and would transfer to an unspecified school.[51] This meant there would be no scholarship quarterback available to play in the Longhorns' bowl game if McCoy was not ready. On December 21, 2006, Texas announced that McCoy was cleared to start in the Alamo Bowl.[52] In the 2006 Alamo Bowl played on December 30, McCoy threw two touchdowns against Iowa to tie the NCAA freshman record of 29 touchdown passes established by Nevada's David Neill in 1998. This record has since been broken by Oklahoma's Sam Bradford in the 2007 season.[53]

Texas to start Case McCoy at QB

By Carter Strickland | ESPN HornsNation
AUSTIN, Texas -- The Longhorns (No. 18 BCS, No. 23 AP) will have a different starter under center for the first time this season when they play Kansas State (No. 6 BCS, No. 7 AP) in the last game of the season.
Case McCoy, who started five games last season, has been named the starter. McCoy has twice relieved David Ash, and he picked up the win with two fourth-quarter touchdowns against Kansas. He went 11-of-17 for 110 yards with an interception and a touchdown drive in relief of Ash against TCU on Thursday in a game Texas lost 20-13.
Mack Brown had no qualms in declaring that Ash would be "really good in the future," but the Texas coach refused to say if the sophomore quarterback's future was as a starter at Texas.
"I see David being a good player in the future," he said a second time when asked if Ash's future was as the starter for Texas in 2013.
Ash has been listed as questionable for the Kansas State game due to a rib injury. 
The switching of starters could be perceived as a step back for Texas. The Longhorns went through 2011 alternating starters and finally settled on Ash as the full-time starter in August. The sophomore, however, has struggled with his consistency against Oklahoma, Kansas and TCU.
McCoy came on in relief in all three of those games -- Ash was injured in the OU game -- and was 21-of-33 for 321 yards with three touchdowns and one interception. In Ash's 17 starts he has been pulled four times.
"(McCoy) came in against Kansas State last year and gave us a chance," said Brown. "This is a great opportunity for him to do what he did against Kansas."
Ash's primary issue has been throwing ill-timed interceptions. He has thrown seven picks, with all coming inside the opponent's 30-yard line. Four of those interceptions came in losses to OU and TCU.
McCoy's last start was against Baylor last season. He had four interceptions and two fumbles in a loss.  McCoy did not see another snap that season, as Ash played the entire Bridgepoint Education Holiday Bowl and was awarded MVP.
McCoy has played in seven games this season, completing 66.7 percent of his passes with the one aforementioned interception. Ash initially won the job because of his ability to manage the game and make the right decision at the right time. In fact, even after Ash was pulled in the Kansas game and McCoy came on to win the game, Texas elected to go back to Ash because he gave the Longhorns the best chance to win.
Ash has completed 67.7 percent of his passes with 17 touchdowns and seven interceptions. His pass efficiency rating of 154.9 ranks him 19th in FBS. But his stats could be slightly misleading, as his seven 2012 wins -- the KU win was not factored in -- have come against defenses collectively rated 82nd overall and 87th in pass defense.
McCoy brings the ability to scramble but also an air of danger. While scrambling and keeping plays alive could be his greatest asset, McCoy has been known to force balls into tight windows where they have been picked. That was the case against TCU, as McCoy, trying to rally the team down seven points, scrambled and forced a ball to Jaxon Shipley. TCU had three defensive backs in the area and intercepted the pass to seal the win.
McCoy started five games as a sophomore and was 3-2. The three wins were over UCLA, Iowa State and Texas A&M. His losses came against Oklahoma and Baylor. 
In its past 24 games, Texas has changed starters six times.
