FBU Quarterbacks Coach Sean Salisbury is an American football analyst, former NFL and CFL quarterback, and actor.

Salisbury attended Orange Glen High School in Escondido, CA. During his senior year he was a highly recruited quarterback, choosing USC over UCLA, BYU, Stanford, Notre Dame, Cal-Berkley, Arizona, and Arizona State. He was a standout quarterback at the University of Southern California before moving on to a 10-year professional career with Seahawks, Colts, Vikings, Oilers, and Chargers as well as the CFL's Winnipeg Blue Bombers, where he led Winnipeg to the CFL's Grey Cup title in 1988.

After getting his start on Comedy Central as a television personality, Salisbury went on to become an NFL analyst on ESPN's Sportscenter and NFL Live. Salisbury was hired as a consultant for the 2005 remake of The Longest Yard, where he taught Adam Sandler proper quarterback mechanics, cadences, and footwork. Due to his work, Sandler later offered Salisbury a role in the 2006 film, The Benchwarmers.

In 2007, Salisbury's No. 12 football jersey was retired at his alma mater, Orange Glen High School, an honor no other person in school history has ever received.
