Archie Manning was a long time New Orleans Saints quarterback who made the Pro Bowl in 1978 and 1979. He played his college ball at Ole Miss and is the patriarch of the Manning quarterback family. His sons Eli and Peyton both won two Super Bowls during their playing careers. His oldest son is Cooper, who had to retire from football due to a spinal condition. Cooper is the father of Arch.
Texas coach Steve Sarkisian said earlier this month that Arch would have a chance to compete for the starting quarterback job. He is competing with last season’s starter Quinn Ewers for the job.
