Barker played college football at the University of Alabama, under head coach Gene Stallings. In the final game of the 1992 season, Barker led the Crimson Tide to a national championship by defeating the #1 Miami Hurricanes, 34–13, in the 1993 Sugar Bowl. In the 1994 season, Barker won the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award and finished fifth in the voting for the Heisman Trophy. Barker led the Crimson Tide to a 35–2–1 record as their starting quarterback; the official NCAA record book reflects a 27–11 mark due to later forfeiture of games during the 1993 season.
Barker was drafted in the 1995 NFL Draft in the fifth round by the Green Bay Packers, but did not make the team. Subsequently, Barker was on the roster of the New England Patriots and the Carolina Panthers, but never played in a regular season game.
After three seasons with the Argonauts, Barker left to join the Birmingham Thunderbolts in the XFL. A fan favorite of the Bolts' (generally small) crowds, Barker was the team's second-string quarterback and played several games in the middle of the season before suffering a career-ending concussion late. In contrast to his college career, his time in the XFL saw him oversee the beginning of a seven-game losing streak.
Barker is currently an analyst for ESPN Radio, and an on-air personality for WJOX in Birmingham. Both he and Al Del Greco, a former Auburn placekicker, host the Opening Drive program on WJOX, along with Tony Kurre.
In 2008, Barker married American country musician Sara Evans. With his four children and Evans' three children, her son Avery Jack (born August 21, 1999) and daughters Olivia Margaret (born January 22, 2003) and Audrey Elizabeth (born October 6, 2004) – he lives in Mountain Brook, Alabama, a suburb of Birmingham.
