The Miami Dolphins have had quite the quarterback drama this season. That is not to say that there is a controversy, rather that their stud quarterback Tua Tagovailoa has suffered numerous concussions. He suffered another one in Miami’s loss on Christmas Day to the Green Bay Packers and will not play this week. Instead, Teddy Bridgewater will get the start for the Dolphins. With their quarterback room temporarily missing one, the Dolphins tried out former Wisconsin Badgers quarterback Jack Coan on Thursday.

Jack Coan at Wisconsin
Former Wisconsin Badgers quarterback Jack Coan was with the program from 2017-2020. However, he was the regular starter for just one season, his junior year in 2019. That season, Coan threw for 2,727 yards while completing 69.6% of his passes. He had 18 touchdowns and five interceptions. Wisconsin finished 10-4 that year and earned a berth in the Rose Bowl. Unfortunately, the Badgers fell 28-27 to the Justin Herbert-led Ducks.
Coan was 23/35 for 186 yards with a touchdown and an interception in the 2020 Rose Bowl. After a foot injuring during camp in 2020, Coan lost the starting job to Graham Mertz. As a result, Coan opted to transfer to Notre Dame for his final season of eligibility.
A Better Year a Notre Dame
In his only season with Notre Dame, Coan threw for 3,150 yards, 25 touchdowns, and seven interceptions. After that season, he entered the NFL Draft, but was not drafted. As indicated above, Coan did spend training camp with the Indianapolis Colts prior to this season.
