Quarterback | Letters 1984-1987

The Reagan decade was not a kind time to the Bearcats Football program. In 10 years the Bearcats cycled through five coaches, had two winning seasons (both at 6-5) and set a very low standard. There were bright spots true. The upset of Penn State being perhaps the brightest. But the play of two guys came close to breaking out of the shadows.

Danny McCoin came to UC from the tiny Tennessee town of Livingston some 230 miles south of Cincinnati. It was a place well off the beaten path for pre-internet/smartphone era recruiters. It was the Bearcats gain. McCoin started for three years. After a stellar Junior season which saw him complete 64% of his passes for 2,831 yards and 13 TD's he was thought to be in line for a high draft slot. Instead he injured his knee during a 25-0 win against Louisville. Being the 80's the injury effectively ended any shot of McCoin playing in the NFL. Instead he had to settle for completely rewriting the Bearcats record book with new career marks for attempts, completions, completion percentage,yards, and TD's.
