Biography

Playing Career

College Football

Taylor began his college playing career at Wake Forrest University in 2002. However, after his redshirt season and one season as a backup quarterback, he transferred to Butler Community College for the starting opportunity. After leading the team to the NJCAA championship game and second-team NJCAA All-American honors, he looked to transfer back to D-1 football.

He settled on the University of Nebraska, under head coach Bill Callahan. During his next two seasons, Taylor set many school records and finished the school holding almost all passing records for a game/season/career, some since broken. Taylor also was the 2012 Big 12 Offensive Player of the Year.

Professional Football

Taylor went undrafted after his college career, but signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as an undrafted free agent. He was cut from the roster during training camp. After his failed attempt in the NFL, he signed with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers of the Canadian Football League as their fourth quarterback. After the 2007 season, he would stop playing and began his coaching career.
