McQuarters was known as one of the most versatile players in college football during his time at Oklahoma State. He was primarily a defensive back, but he also played receiver on offense and returned kicks on special teams. He started nine games at wide receiver as a junior and finished his college career with eight receptions for 245 yards (30.6 avg.) and two touchdowns. He also rushed for 69 yards on two carries (34.5 avg.) and one touchdown. He ranked second in the nation and set a school record with 521 punt return yards for a 16.3-yard average and one touchdown and added 195 yards on eight kickoff returns for an average of 24.4 yards per attempt. Special teams are units in American football and Canadian football that are on the field during kickoffs, free kicks, punts, and field goal and extra point attempts. ...


He is a favorite of former Detroit Lions coach Steve Mariucci, who drafted him when Mariucci was head coach of the 49ers, then signed him as a free agent with the Lions. McQuarters is perhaps best known for his especially long, majestic dreadlocks or "ropes," which he has not cut since 1998. They extend over a foot below his playing helmet, and flap quite noticeably on the field of play. Steve Mariucci (born November 4, 1955 in Iron Mountain, Michigan) is a former National Football League coach, most recently for the Detroit Lions. ... Dreadlocks, sometimes called simply dreads or locks, are matted ropes of hair which will form by themselves if the hair is allowed to grow naturally without the use of brushes, combs, razors or scissors for a long period of time. ...


Legal History

In October 2006, a Chicago judge dismissed McQuarters' claims that a bank wrongfully declared him in default on $1.3 million in loans for failing to pay the mortgage on his luxury condominium, Lamborghini and Hummer.


McQuarters had claimed in a counter-suit that the bank's representatives had violated consumer fraud acts and its employees had forged his signature on bank documents. In dismissing McQuarters suit, the judge ordered him to pay the Bank's legal fees which amount to about $20,000.[1][2]
