Former Ole Miss quarterback Jevan Snead was found dead this weekend in Austin, Texas, according to the Austin American-Statesman.

The former Rebel was found in his home, according to the reports.

Snead, 32, was the managing consultant for WeWork Space Services since April.

Snead transferred to Ole Miss after losing his starting job to Colt McCoy at the University of Texas in 2006.

After sitting out the 2007 season, he took over the starting job for the Rebels in 2008 and 2009 as he led them to two back-to-back Cotton Bowl victories over Texas Tech and Oklahoma State.

During Snead’s two seasons in Oxford, he threw for 5,394 yards with 46 touchdowns and 33 interventions over 26 starts for coach Houston Nutt.
