Jeff Garcia spent his early playing days with the Calgary Stampeders of the Canadian Football League, when NFL teams passed on him when he came out of college in 1994. After winning a Grey Cup championship up north, Garcia made his way to the NFL, playing with seven NFL teams over the next 10 seasons. His first — and most famous — stop was with the San Francisco 49ers, which resulted in the public spat between him and wide receiver Terrell Owens.
In his post-playing days, Garcia joined the advisory board of an organization that tried to revive the defunct United States Football League (USFL), and then headed back up to Canada to coach for the Montreal Alouettes. In 2015, he also served as an offensive assistant for the Los Angeles Rams.
