Vincent Tobias Evans (born June 14, 1955) is a former professional American football quarterback who was selected by the Chicago Bears in the sixth round (140th overall pick) of the 1977 NFL Draft. Evans played collegiately at USC and was the MVP of the 1977 Rose Bowl after the Trojans' 14-6 victory over Michigan.

Evans played professionally for the Bears as well as Chicago's team in the United States Football League, the Chicago Blitz, as well as the USFL's Denver Gold, and the NFL's Los Angeles/Oakland Raiders in a career that spanned nearly 20 years from 1977 to 1995.

Evans is the only player of the Bears to score a perfect quarterback rating in a game, doing so against the Green Bay Packers in 1980, completing 18 of 22 passes for 316 yards and three touchdowns. The game marked the first time since 1970 that a Bears quarterback threw for more than 300 yards.[1]

After losing the season opener in his final USC season, the Trojans won their next 10 games with Evans at quarterback and ended up ranked the No. 2 team in the nation.

Evans has three children: daughter Chloe' who is a model, son Vincent Jr., son Noah, who is currently a wide receiver at Whittier Christian High School, and daughter Christa.

In 1976, he threw for 1,440 yards with 10 touchdowns vs six interceptions. He completed 53.7% of his passes.[2]
