Brayden Tyler "Brady" Quinn (born October 27, 1984 in Columbus, Ohio) is the starting quarterback for the Cleveland Browns of the National Football League. Quinn was drafted by the Browns with the twenty-second overall pick of the 2007 NFL Draft.
Quinn attended Dublin Coffman High School in Dublin, Ohio, and ranked sixth on the Detroit Free Press "Best of the Midwest" team and was listed at number 20 on ESPN's list of the nation's top 100 players as a preparatory student.
As a high school junior in 2001 , Quinn threw for 2,200 yards and 21 touchdowns to go along with 15 interceptions, posting a 9-4 record with which Coffman reached the Division I state semi-finals. As a senior in 2002 , he threw for 2,149 yards, completing 143 of 258 pass attempts, and he threw 25 touchdowns with four interceptions while rushing for 108 yards and six touchdowns. Quinn helped his team post an 8-3 record and played in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl in San Antonio, Texas. Quinn was named the Columbus Dispatch and Ohio Capital Conference Offensive Player of the Year and was an All-State choice.
Quinn was named an All-Conference player in baseball as a junior and lettered three times. He was a member of Young Life, the Rock Solid Club and Who's Who Among America High School Students.
In the fall of 2002, then-Notre Dame head coach Tyrone Willingham offered Quinn a scholarship, acting on a tip from fellow recruit Chinedum Ndukwe's father.
Quinn accepted Willingham's scholarship and attended the University of Notre Dame, where he shattered 36 Fighting Irish records during his four seasons with the team. There were ten career records, twelve single-season records, four single-game records and ten miscellaneous records broken by Quinn throughout those four years, including the record for career pass attempts with 1,602, completions with 929, yards-per-game with 239.6, touchdown passes with 95, and the Irish's lowest interception percentage with 2.43. Quinn won 29 games as a starter at Notre Dame, tied with Ron Powlus and Tom Clements for the most in school history. On the downside, his 17 losses are the most in school history, one more than Powlus' 16 losses, and are markedly more than Clements' 5 losses. Quinn ranks in the top ten in NCAA Division I history in career pass attempts (ranked seventh), passing yards (ranked tenth) and touchdown passes (ranked ninth).
For his college career, Quinn had 32 interceptions in three years. Comparing Quinn to other Notre Dame top-10 quarterbacks, that is in line with Steve Beuerlein (44 in four years), Terry Hanratty (34 in three years) and Joe Theismann (35 in three years). It contrasts with other top Notre Dame quarterbacks, such as Powlus (27 in four years), Rick Mirer (23 in four years), Jarious Jackson (21 in four years) and Joe Montana (25 in three years).
In 2005, under the supervision of Notre Dame's new head coach Charlie Weis, formerly of the New England Patriots, Quinn blossomed as a starting quarterback. He averaged 110 more passing yards per game than he had as a sophomore while nearly doubling his number of touchdown passes, throwing 32 in 2005 compared to 17 in 2004. Quinn placed fourth in the Heisman Trophy voting behind Reggie Bush, Vince Young and Matt Leinart. Quinn was named to the 2005 AP All-America Team as a third-team quarterback and the 2006 SI.com All-American Team as a second-team quarterback. Quinn received the Sammy Baugh Trophy as the nation's top passer of the 2005 season. At the end of the season, Notre Dame faced Ohio State in the Fiesta Bowl. Quinn had 29 completions in 45 pass attempts for 286 yards in a 34-20 loss to Ohio State.
Prior to the start of the 2006 college football season, Quinn was featured in a regional cover on the 2006-08-22 issue of Sports Illustrated's 2006 College Football Preview issue along with then-teammates Tom Zbikowski and Travis Thomas with the caption "Notre Dame: The Battle For No. 1." Quinn was expected to lead his Fighting Irish squad as one of the best college football quarterbacks in the country. However, the team's #2 pre-season ranking was put to the test in games against the Michigan Wolverines on 2006-09-16 in which the Irish lost 47-21 and USC Trojans on November 25, 2006 in which the Irish lost 24-44. Arguably, these were the team's two biggest games of the season, and proved to be the team's only regular-season losses.
However, despite the somewhat disappointing season for the Fighting Irish in which the team finished ranked #11, Quinn posted rather impressive numbers, finishing the season with 3,426 yards on 289 completions out of 467 attempts for a completion percentage of 61.9% and 7.34 yards-per-attempt. He threw 37 touchdowns to only 7 interceptions, and was sacked 31 times. Quinn finished the regular season with a passing efficiency rating of 146.65, which ranked him 18th in the country.
Quinn and the Fighting Irish were invited to the 2007 Sugar Bowl on January 3, 2007, where the team would face off against the LSU Tigers. However, Quinn would prove to be outmatched against the strong LSU defense, which held him to only 148 passing yards. Quinn threw only two touchdown passes, both in the first half, and the Tigers held Notre Dame scoreless through the second half of the game to defeat the Fighting Irish 41-14.
Following the 2006 season, Quinn won several awards, including the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award for the best college quarterback in the nation and the Maxwell Award for the best college football player. Quinn finished third in the Heisman Trophy balloting behind Troy Smith and Darren McFadden. He was named the Cingular All-America Player of the Year and was named to the 2006 AP All-America Team as a second-team quarterback
