Lebby had a laudable coaching performances in 2018, helping the Knights repeat the regular season undefeated and as the American Athletic Conference Champions. Inheriting one of the top quarterbacks in the nation, Lebby helped McKenzie Milton take the next step in his career. Milton threw for 2,663 yards and 25 touchdowns with a quarterback efficiency of 161, which ranked 11th in the country. Not afraid of the deep ball, Milton ranked third nationally with nearly 16 yards per reception. Milton became the first player in league history to repeat as The American Offensive Player of the Year and finished sixth in the Heisman Trophy voting.
Lebby’s skills were put to the test when Milton was sidelined for the ECU game midway through the year, which meant that backup quarterback Darriel Mack Jr. took the reins against the Pirates. Nearly breaking the single-game record for rushing yards by a quarterback, Mack excelled on the ground with 120 yards and one score on 22 carries, while having a nice game in the air with 12-for-20 passing for 69 yards.
Midway through the second quarter of the USF game, Lebby faced another challenge when Milton went down with a season-ending injury, meaning that Mack would have to preserve the Knights’ unbeaten streak. With a week to prepare the redshirt freshman for the American Athletic Conference Championship Game against Memphis, Lebby turned Mack loose against the Tigers, as he threw for a pair of touchdowns on 19-of-27 passing for 348 yards and tied the school record with four rushing touchdowns.
