Biography and Career
Kosar played for the Cleveland Browns from 1985 to 1993 and then finished his career with the Dallas Cowboys and the Miami Dolphins.
Ohio, Kosar was raised in suburban Boardman. He attended Boardman High School, where he earned Parade All-American honors as a senior for the 1981 season. He also gained recognition as a baseball player, especially for his pitching skills.
Kosar chose to play college football at the University of Miami, which ran a passing-oriented offense and was beginning to emerge as one of the top football programs in the nation.
After being redshirted in 1982, Kosar started all
12 games as a freshman in 1983. He completed 61.5 percent of his passes for 2,328 yards and 15 touchdowns, leading the Hurricanes to an 11Ã¢â‚¬â€œ1 regular season and a berth in the Orange Bowl against top-ranked Nebraska, which had won 22 consecutive games. In the game, Kosar passed for 300 yards and two touchdowns, and the Hurricanes topped the Cornhuskers 31Ã¢â‚¬â€œ30 for Miami's first national championship.
Under National Football League rules at the time, only seniors and graduates could be drafted. Kosar, who was scheduled to graduate over the summer from the University of Miami's business school with a double major in finance and economics, had two years of college eligibility remaining.
On a related note, Buffalo tied with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for the worst record in 1985 and would have had the first pick in the 1986 draft. The Bills still had the rights to Jim Kelly at the time and eventually signed him. Both the Bills and the Buccaneers lost the opportunity to have the first player in the 1986 draft play for them.
