The NFL has many characters that have found their way into Hollywood. The Tennessee Titans’ new QB Coach, Pat O’Hara, was more important than just a cameo appearance in several films.
With the fame of the NFL, many players and coaches often find their way to Hollywood. Sometimes they play themselves or even find acting careers after their playing career is over. Then you have someone like Pat O’Hara, who was an integral part in some of your favorite football films.
O’Hara began as a quarterback for USC and had a journeyman professional career. He bounced around from the NFL to Arena Football for about 15 years. From there, he spent time as a coach in some high school programs and in the Arena Football League. In 2015, O’Hara was made an offensive assistant for the Houston Texans. That was where he made an impression on current Titans head coach Mike Vrabel.
With the Titans, O’Hara will be tasked with helping to develop Marcus Mariota into a quarterback that can win a Super Bowl. Even though O’Hara has limited experience as an NFL coach, he is an exciting prospect because he has been teaching the game of football on and off the field for the last 22 years.

According to Patrick O’Hara’s IMDB page, he started his movie career as the Cougars quarterback in Waterboy in 1998. From there, he played a few other roles like Tyler Cherubini, the backup quarterback in Any Given Sunday. Besides his acting career, O’Hara has been used as a consultant and stunt double as well. His consulting work consisted of teaching actors the proper technique to look like actual football players in movies.
He even left an impression on some of the actors he worked with, such as Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. Johnson worked with O’Hara in the movie The Game Plan. The Rock even tweeted about O’Hara after he found out he became the Titans’ quarterback coach:
He also has credits in The Longest Yard, We are Marshall, and Invincible. Hopefully, O’Hara can bring the Hollywood magic to the Tennessee Titans next season. His success on and off the field has given him the opportunity to shine with the Titans. As long as next season does not become a drama, the Titans should be in good shape with O’Hara as their new quarterbacks coach.
