Former Ole Miss quarterback Jevan Snead, 32, dies in Texas
AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Jevan Snead, the former Mississippi quarterback who ranks among the school’s career passing leaders, has died in Texas aged 32.
Police say officers responding to a deceased-person call found Snead dead in Austin Saturday night. Austin police provided no information except to say Snead’s death isn’t considered suspicious.
Snead was one of the top recruits in the country when he signed with Texas in 2006, but he couldn’t win the starting job over Colt McCoy. After limited playing time that season, Snead transferred to Ole Miss. He sat out the 2007 season and was a starter for the Rebels 2008-2009.
Snead passed for 5,394 yards and 46 touchdowns in two seasons for the Rebels. Both marks rank in the top 10 in school history.
