After originally being connected with Famed QB Guru, George Whitfield. (Cam Newton, Big Ben) It looks like the Ohio State signal caller decided to go with former Bengal Ken Anderson.
Ken Anderson isn’t just an ex-NFL QB, he’s a retired QB coach as well. Some of you may remember that he was actually the Bengals QB coach from 1993 to 1996. Then from 1996 to 2000 Anderson was actually the team’s offensive coordinator. He was later replaced by
fan favorite Bob Bratkowski and went back to being the teams QB coach until 2002. (Anderson was one of the coaches to part ways with the Bengals when Coach Lewis took over)
After he parted ways with the Bengals he went to Jacksonville to work with a rookie Byron Leftwich. During his tenure in Jacksonville he also groomed 4th round pick David Garrard (who went on to become the starter the year after Leftwich left).
Following his years in Jacksonville he became the Steelers QB coach from 2007 to 2009. During his tenure with the Steelers he coached “Big” Ben Roethlisberger to a pro bowl. And under his watch QB, Big Ben and the Steelers won a Super Bowl.
Will Coach Anderson working with Pryor be a positive or negative impact? It’s to early to tell. But if his track record as a QB coach shows anything, Pryor may be in for a rocky career.
