Brister had a fourteen-year career as an NFL quarterback. He spent his first seven years in the Steel City, many of them as the Steelersâ€™ starting quarterback. After brief stints with the Philadelphia Eagles and New York Jets, Brister found a home as John Elwayâ€™s backup with the Denver Broncos, where he won two super bowl championships. Brister retired from the NFL after spending the 2000 season with the Minnesota Vikings.
Bubby started playing football in Monroe, LA, where he starred as a quarterback at Neville High School. He accepted a scholarship to play at Tulane, and he eventually transferred to Northeast Louisiana University, where he racked up huge statistics. He would go on to become the 4th quarterback taken overall in the 3rd round of the 1986 NFL draft.
Known during his playing days for his thick southern accent and gun slinginâ€™ mentality, Brister completed 1,207 of his 2,212 pass attempts for 14,445 yards and 81 touchdowns during his career. After retiring from football, Brister spent some time as an analyst for Denverâ€™s Fox Sports Net affiliate. He has also hosted a hunting and fishing oriented show on The Outdoor Channel called Louisiana Outdoor Adventures.
DeBartolo Sports University considers it both an honor and priviledge to add Bubby Brister as a featured QB coach. His wealth of experience and knowledge will be a welcome addition to the Houston and Dallas Football Festivalâ€™s.
