Norman Bailey "Norm" Snead (born July 31, 1939, in Halifax County, Virginia) is a former American football quarterback in the National Football League for the Washington Redskins, Philadelphia Eagles, Minnesota Vikings, New York Giants, and San Francisco 49ers. He played college football for Wake Forest University and was drafted in the first round (second overall pick) of the 1961 NFL Draft. He was named to the Pro Bowl on four occasions, in 1962, 1963, 1965, and in 1972, when he led the NFL in completion percentage and was second in QB ranking.[1] His career ended after the 1976 season.

In 1964, the Philadelphia Eagles traded the experienced Sonny Jurgensen and defensive back Jimmy Carr to the Washington Redskins for youthful Snead and defensive back Claude Crabb.[2]

Coaching historyEdit

Snead was the 27th and then later the 29th head college football coach for the The Apprentice School Builders located in Newport News, Virginia, and he held that position for ten seasons, from 1977 until 1984 and then returning from 1988 until 1989. His coaching record at Apprentice was 46 wins, 41 losses, and 2 ties. As of the conclusion of the 2007 season, this ranks him first at Apprentice in total wins and sixth at Apprentice in winning percentage (0.517).[3]
