As a young boy, Bob primarily played baseball and excelled as a pitcher. During his schooling at Rex Mundi High School, Griese also played basketball and football, and earned 12 varsity letters for the Monarchs. In 1963, he led the American Legion baseball team to the American League Baseball World Series, and his basketball team reached first place during the 1962-3 season. Bob was named All-Sectional in his high school career and after being propositioned by several colleges for football, Griese decided to attend Purdue University. He studied business management, joining the Sigma Chi Fraternity, and became a three-sport star – he pitched for the college’s baseball team, played guard on the basketball team, and quarterback, punter and kicker for their football team. His success was so impressive that he ranks no.10 in all time scoring at Purdue University, and was a two-time All-American, plus being awarded the Big Ten Medal of Honor for his excellence in academics and athletics.

In the 1967 Common Draft, Bob was the fourth selected player, by the AFL’s Miami Dolphins. During his first few seasons, Griese became an AFL All-Star and earned AFC-NFC Pro Bowl honors. It was in 1971 that he helped the team enter the Super Bowl and was voted the Most Valuable Player in the NFL, being awarded the Jim Thorpe trophy. Bob easily led his team to the Super Bowl one more time in 1974, when they won against the Minnesota Vikings in Super Bowl VIII.

During his years with the Miami Dolphins, Griese became known as the “Thinking Man’s Quarterback” due to his brilliant play, and thanks to him, the Dolphins achieved the highest winning percentage during the ‘70s. Throughout his 14 professional seasons, Bob was a two times All-Pro and a six-time Dolphins’ MVP. He played in six Pro Bowls and two AFL All-Star games. His number 12 was retired in 1985 during a “Monday Night Football” game on ABC. He was eventually asked to stay on the team as assistant coach in 1981, which he accepted.

After his retirement, Griese worked as an announcer for NBC Sports and providing color commentary on ABC sports and ESPN. He eventually became one of the best commentators in the country. He finally retired in February 2011.

When it comes to his private life, Bob married his college classmate Judi Lassus in June 1967 and has three sons; Judi died in 1988 after suffering from breast cancer. Griese now lives in Jupiter, Florida and Banner Elk, North Carolina, with his second wife, Shay.
