Sheridan was the quarterbacks coach and passing-game coordinator in 2012 after serving as the team's offensive graduate assistant in 2011. In 2012, Sheridan developed Kawaun Jakes to a 147.8 pass efficiency rating, which was 28th nationally ranked. Jakes passed for 2,289 yards, 21 TDs and completing 64.6% of his passes.
