Ex-NFL QB Sean Salisbury To Mentor Texas A&M’s Kenny Hill

Kenny Hill

Who knew Kenny Trill himself was looking for guidance.

The family for Texas A&M quarterback Kenny Trill has sought out former NFL quarterback Sean Salisbury to help mentor the embattled quarterback.

“Teach him how to approach the off-the-field stuff better. And to work with him on the field. Fix his mechanics, get him going. This is a critical point for him. I spent time talking to the family (Tuesday) night, hopefully we’ll start this weekend. If not, we’ll start early next week and carry it into the off-season and work his butt off,” Salisbury said, according to transcription at dallasnews.com. Salisbury added that Aggies offensive coordinator Jake Spavital is aware of the arrangement.

Hill is in the midst of serving a two-game suspension, which was levied shortly after he lost the starting job to freshman Kyle Allen.

Salisbury touched on his role as a mentor for Hill, as well.

“… Just some things, understanding exactly how people look at you — and it’s unfortunate because that position is looked at different off the field and on. You may want to go have three beers in a bar. Unfortunately three beers to you looks like eight beers to somebody else and they can’t wait to tell people.”

“I’m not going to put in Stanford’s offense while training Kenny Hill for Texas A&M. Footwork, mechanics, don’t change anywhere,” Salisbury added. “Hell, I want Texas A&M to win. I want Kenny Hill to succeed, I want A&M to succeed. He’s a young man that got off the beaten path a little bit needs to get back on it.”
