Texas State Bobcats add Memphis transfer, former Coppell HS QB Brady McBride

Former Memphis and Coppell High School quarterback Brady McBride announced on his Twitter page that he is transferring to Texas State.

SAN MARCOS, Texas — Former Coppell signal-caller Brady McBride will take his talents from Memphis to San Marcos, according to his Twitter page

In his short career at Memphis, McBride played in three games and made his debut in the season opener against Mercer, where he threw for 70 yards on 6-for-10 passing and rushed for 23 yards on six carries. McBride redshirted the rest of his freshman season after seeing action in those three games. 

While his stint with the University of Memphis was short, the Texas State Bobcats secured a three-year starter from Coppell, where led the Cowboys to a 27-10 record and three-straight 6A UIL playoff appearances

Per NCAA rules, McBride should have to sit out the 2019 season and enter the 2020 season with redshirt sophomore eligibility. 

In his three seasons as the Cowboys' quarterback, McBride threw for 7,662 total yards (6,516 passing and 1,142 rushing), 501 completions on 823 attempts, 86 passing touchdowns, and 14 interceptions, while 21 rushing for touchdowns.

McBride will join four other quarterbacks already on the Texas State roster: junior Gresch Jensen, sophomores Jaylen Gipson and Tyler Vitt, freshman Cedric Case.

McBride is the son of Joe McBride, the former head coach and now-athletic director at Coppell, according to Dave Campbell's Texas Football magazine.
