Kirk Cousins Interview

EAST LANSING, Mich. - Former Spartan Kirk Cousins, the winningest quarterback in the history of Michigan State football, will return to Spartan Stadium on Saturday to serve as a BTN analyst for MSU's spring game.

After a successful rookie campaign in 2012 playing for the Washington Redskins, Cousins is currently preparing for his second season in Washington. Cousins appeared in three regular-season games, including one start, a victory over the Cleveland Browns. He completed 33-of-48 throws (.688) for 466 yards and four touchdowns, and helped the Redskins reach the NFL Playoffs for the first time since 2007.

Cousins won a school-record 27 games as the starting quarterback at MSU from 2009-11 and finished his career as Michigan State's all-time record holder in passing touchdowns (66), passing yards (9,131), completions (723), passing efficiency (146.1 rating), total offense (9,004 yards) and 200-yard passing games (26).

MSUSpartans.com had a chance to sit down with Cousins in the offseason to discuss his time at Michigan State and how playing under head coach Mark Dantonio has prepared him for the NFL.
