Cade McNown Life

Cade Brem McNown (born January 12, 1977) is a former American football player who was a quarterback in the National Football League (NFL) for four seasons.

He played college football for the UCLA Bruins, earning consensus All-American honors as a senior in 1998.

The Chicago Bears selected him in the first round of the 1999 NFL Draft, and he played professionally for the Bears, Miami Dolphins, and San Francisco 49ers of the NFL.

Early years

McNown was born in Portland, Oregon. He went to high school at San Benito High School in Hollister, California, before transferring as a senior to West Linn High School in West Linn, Oregon, where he played quarterback and free safety.

He led his high school to the 1994 Oregon Class 4A semifinals, becoming wildly touted by newspapers as a college prospect. He also was active on the school track team, where he set a school pole vault record. McNown signed with UCLA after high school. His selection of UCLA was influenced by future NFL quarterback Brock Huard signing with Washington. Huard, along with McNown, were the top high school quarterback prospects in the western United States in 1994.

Personal life

McNown was charged in September 1999 with the illegal possession of a disabled parking pass while playing football at UCLA in 1996, to which he pleaded no contest. Other players charged included Skip Hicks, Larry Atkins, Marques Anderson, and Brendon Ayanbadejo.

In 2000, it was reported that McNown had been dating 1999 Playboy Playmate of the Year Heather Kozar, and future (2001) Playmate of the Year Brande Roderick.

McNown is married to Christina, daughter of actor and dancer John Brascia and actress and model Sondra Scott. As of June 2016, he and Christina have four children.

McNown later worked for UBS in the private wealth group before joining JPMorgan Chase Private Bank. In 2013, McNown joined capital management firm Lourd Murray as a vice president. In 2016, McNown joined Kayne Anderson as a senior managing director. In June 2022, McNown joined The Carlyle Group as a Managing Director and Client Relationship Manager.

On October 22, 2021, Tunnel 8 at the Rose Bowl was named in Cade McNown's honor.


Cade McNown Career

College career

McNown played for the Bruins from 1995 to 1998 at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). In several surveys, he was the starting quarterback for four games into the season, placing him third among all freshmen quarterbacks. UCLA finished 7-5 and played in the Aloha Bowl in 1995 (losing to Kansas).

McNown was less successful as a sophomore in 1996, when UCLA went 5-6 and finished 9th in the Pac-10 in pass efficiency, placing him 9th in the Pact. UCLA beat rival USC 48–41 in overtime, despite a 17-point fourth quarter deficit.

McNown, a junior in 1997, established the team's aim to score an average of 30 points per game. They scored 39.75 points per game. UCLA won its remaining 10 games, including the 1998 Cotton Bowl Classic over Texas A&M, to finish Pac-10 co-champion and ranked No. 5 after a 0–2 start. The country's fifth best-ranked player. McNown was voted Most Outstanding Offensive Player for the Cotton Bowl Classic this year. He was also a finalist for the Davey O'Brien Award by the Associated Press (third-team), the Sporting News (third-team), made the All-Pac-10 squad (second-team) behind Washington State's Ryan Leaf and came eighth in the Heisman polling, placing him third. With a 168.6 rating, he led the country in passing efficiency. He set several UCLA records, most of which had been set by Tom Ramsey.

McNown, who played for UCLA in 1998, set a 10–2 record, as well as a appearance as the sole Pac-10 champion. The Bruins' ferocious offense put them on a 20-game winning streak from last year, when they defeated the Miami Hurricanes in their regular season finale on Saturday, knocking UCLA out of the BCS Championship Game vs. Tennessee. McNown was the Bruins' resurgent offense, with McNown in their first 10 games from 1998. In the Rose Bowl, the dissatisfied Bruins then lost 38–31 to Ron Dayne-led Wisconsin. McNown held numerous school records in passing and offense, became the Pac-10's all-time career leader in total offense, and received a series of post-season awards, including Pac-10 co-Offensive Player of the Year, consensus first-team All-American awards, and the Johnny Unitas Award for top senior quarterback in college football. In addition, McNown finished third in the Heisman Trophy voting. McNown threw two touchdowns in assisting the South team in the 1999 Senior Bowl, earning MVP honors.

McNown has many of the passing and total records from his time in office. McNown is also known as the first UCLA quarterback to go 4–0 against cross-town rival USC. McNown was inducted into the UCLA Athletics Hall of Fame on October 9, 2009. McNown was inducted into the Rose Bowl Hall of Fame on December 30, 2017. In 2020, he was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame.

Professional career

Following the scouting team's participation, several scouts doubted the tenacity of his throwing arm. McNown, Akili Smith, Daunte Culpepper, and Donovan McNabb were among the editors in the issue highlighting the draft. Following a draft pick trade with the Washington Redskins, he was selected by the Chicago Bears with the twelfth overall pick in the first round of the 1999 NFL Draft. He was the highest-drafted Bears quarterback since Jim McMahon.

The Bears had predicted Erik Kramer would be the starting quarterback but they had dropped him prior to signing McNown, who was selected as the upcoming season's starter. He was a labour holdout through the majority of the training camp, eventually committing to a $22 million deal. Shane Matthews will be the starter, according to head coach Dick Jauron, but McNown will watch at least one game a week to gain experience.

McNown played his first game for the Bears on October 10, after recovering from a hamstring injury to Matthews this week. McNown chose not to watch the second half of the game during the game on December 26, after a poor showing against the Rams. Following Miller's suspension, he was recalled as starter by Jim Miller and was named as the starter again. In the season's lonesome loss to Tampa Bay on December 19, he set franchise rookie records with 27 completions, 301 yards, and 4 touchdowns; he also set the rookie record for pass attempts.

He was named the Bears' 2000 starter over Matthews (Miller was injured during the preseason), but his results progressively worsened throughout the season; the Bears under McNown dropped to 1–6 on Sunday, causing the home crowd to sing in favor of Miller's return. During the seventh game of the season (against Philadelphia), he sustained a shoulder injury but was recalled by Matthews. McNown played (and lost) one more game this season against San Francisco. Despite being suspended for the final game of the season, the Detroit Lions' season was not over, and he came back after Matthews was injured again to lead the Bears to an upset victory that eliminated the Lions from what seemed to be a lockout.

McNown, along with a seventh-round pick for a sixth-round pick and a conditional 2003 seventh-round pick, was traded during the 2001 preseason to the Miami Dolphins. He had fallen below Miller and Matthews in Chicago, losing to Danny Wuerffel for the third position on the third row. He was named the third-string quarterback for the Dolphins but saw no action during the season.

During the 2002 offseason, the Dolphins traded McNown to the San Francisco 49ers for a conditional seventh-round draft pick. Terry Donahue, the UCLA head coach, by then, was the general manager. As the 49ers were looking for a quarterback for the West Coast offense, interest in McNown was briefly raised. McNown, who was first competing against Tim Rattay, Giovanni Carmazzi, and Brandon Doman for the backup position behind starter Jeff Garcia, sustained his shoulder injury during the preseason. He was put on injured reserve after it was announced that he needed season-ending surgery. During the 2003 offseason, McNown was activated by the 49ers. His rights were claimed by the Calgary Stampeders shortly after, but he was never signed.
