Colt McCoy isn’t getting his wish to be a starter, but he is going back to his winning ways.

McCoy won in junior high school, and he was 34-3 in high school. He went on to set the NCAA record for career victories at the University of Texas, with 45.

But in McCoy’s three seasons in Cleveland, the Browns were 14-34, including 6-15 with McCoy as their starter.

He was traded to the San Francisco 49ers two weeks ago.

“That’s going to be really special,” McCoy said in a telephone interview. “When I walked in the building in San Francisco, it was the same feel [as at UT]. It’s a great organization, and their only focus is: We want to win, and we want to win now. That’s obviously different than some of the things that I’ve been part of the last few years. I was really happy about that.”

McCoy spent three frustrating years in Cleveland after the Browns made him a third-round pick. He went through four offenses and three head coaches, counting his brief time with new head coach Rob Chudzinski and offensive coordinator Norv Turner.

Then, last season, McCoy never got a chance to win the starting job after the Browns drafted Brandon Weeden in the first round and named him the starter.

McCoy won’t start in San Francisco, with Colin Kaepernick having secured the job by taking the 49ers to the Super Bowl. The 49ers traded former starter Alex Smith to Kansas City before trading for McCoy.
