Will Stein played his last down as a Cardinal earlier this year when Louisville shocked the football world by knocking off the Florida Gators in the 2013 Sugar Bowl. Although his playing days are done, Stein, a Louisville native can still be found roaming the sidelines at the Cardinals spring practice.
The former walk-on quarterback is now serving as a graduate assistant for Charlie Strong’s program. Stein spent five years as a player with the Louisville program, mostly as a reserve. In four seasons, Stein threw for 1,273 yards with six touchdowns and just one interception.
Current Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater has spoke openly over the last two years about Stein’s impact on his development as a quarterback. Bridgewater says he has greatly benefited from having a veteran quarterback like Stein around.
I imagine the Louisville coaching staff will have Stein work closely with the younger quarterback like Kyle Bolin and Will Gardner.
