    Default Brister joins Team USA

    Brister joins Team USA Under-15 coaching staff
    6-24-2011
    By Teresa Varley - Steelers.com

    Former Steelers Merril Hoge and Bubby Brister will be teaming up on the football field again, but this time they will be coaching and not playing.

    Hoge was previously named the head coach of the 2011 U.S. Under-15 National Team and added Brister to his staff as the quarterbacks coach.

    Hoge and Brister will help lead Team USA during the first USA Football Under-15 International Development Week in Canton, Ohio from July 16-24. Joining Team USA will be teams from Canada and Sweden.

    The two played together for the Steelers for six seasons and formed a friendship that made it a no-brainer when Hoge asked Brister to be one of the coaches.

    “Merril asked me to come out and help and I accepted right away,” said Brister, who has previously worked football camps training young quarterbacks. “I enjoy working with young players, teaching proper fundamentals – it’s inspiring and exciting to help a player develop.”

    During his NFL career Brister threw for 14,445 yards and 81 touchdowns, bringing a wealth of knowledge and a zest for the game to Team USA.

    “Our players, as well as those from Canada and Sweden, will enjoy learning from Bubby – he’s an extraordinary teacher, and I’m proud to have him on our staff,” said Hoge. “We’re excited to help develop these young men as players and people during our week together in Canton. This will be a tremendous week to celebrate, learn and enjoy the world’s greatest sport and its team-first values.”

    Those taking part in the Development Week, which includes 26 players from 15 states on Team USA and another 30 on the U.S. Development Team, were nominated based on 2010 USA Football Player Academy skill evaluations.

    The Development Week will focus on football as well as other important topics, as each team will play two games and have seven-on-seven exhibitions, joint practices and educational seminars for the players and parents.

    International youth football development? Wow, that's cool. Hoge seems like he'd be a great teacher of the game.

    He's been into it for a while now..... I personally think it's great..... And as much as folks dislike Brister, I think it's great that he's doing it as well....

    .... It's a win/win for the kids......

    I always liked Walter Andrew "Bubby" Brister's mentality on the football field. He had a few good years as Elway's backup if memory serves me correctly.

    I was always a Bubby Brister fan and I proudly wore my #6 jersey. After Bradshaw and before Roethlisberger, I firmly believe that Bubby was the best of the Steelers carousel of QB's. Yeah, Neil O'Donnell had a little more success but Neil had a MUCH better team to work with. Bubby was a tough son of a gun and he did as well as could be expected considering the scrubs that surrounded him.

    He had a helluvan arm. He threw some great deep balls to Lipps, too bad he threw the 10 yard pass with the same velocity as the deep routes I totally forgot about the I don't do mop up duty. That Was great stuff.
