Steve Sarkisian is among the most discussed CFB coaches in current times. He's been able to develop a powerhouse in Texas with his quarterback room filled with talents like Quinn Ewers, Arch Manning, and Trey Owens.

Sarkisian has also learned how to use the transfer portal to his advantage by adding players like former Alabama stars Amari Niblack and Isaiah Bond, among others.

In a conversation with former Ravens star Robert Griffin III, Texas QB1 Quinn couldn't hold back his praise for head coach Steve Sarkisian while talking about the traits that make him unique. Here's what he said on "RG3 and The Ones":

"I know most guys would not want to talk about their past. And I think he's comfortable in his own shoes in his own skin that he can share those things. And I think that just brings the whole team closer, we're like, 'Okay, our coach isn't perfect,' you know. So I think that allows us to have no fear of failure on the field and off the field."

Steve Sarkisian on looking at Nick Saban for inspiration

The Texas head coach had a bit of a rocky start with the Longhorns at the start of his tenure. After disappointing two seasons in 2021 and 2022, Sarkisian's crew made an impressive comeback in the 2023 college football season.

"To think Nick Saban's never gotten beat at home by double digits in 18 years until that game, to think that was the first nonconference team to go in there and beat them and over a decade. So there was there was a lot of like to put it into perspective for our players, I think was huge.
"I think it was it was a great checkmark on our journey. For a lot of people to look back at that game was like, Okay, now we've assembled the team, that culture that can go achieve that. Now. How do we find that level of consistency to do it year in and year out?" (14:00)
