Keynote

Bob Griese
Chair, Moffitt Board of Advisors
Miami Dolphins Radio Analyst
Member, College and Pro Football Halls of Fame


 

Bob Griese combined excellence in two distinct areas — on the football field and in the broadcast booth. He was a Hall of Fame quarterback for the Miami Dolphins and then became one of network television’s most respected football analysts.

As a collegian, Griese was a two-time All American at Purdue and was voted theAll-Time Quarterback for Purdue’s first 100 years. He was named to the inaugural class of the Boilermaker Athletic Hall of Fame and is a member of College Football’s Hall of Fame.

After his outstanding collegiate career, Griese was drafted fourth overall as the Miami Dolphins’ number one pick in 1967. Known as the “thinking man’s quarterback” during his brilliant 14-year NFL career with the Dolphins (1967-1980), he was renowned for his poised leadership and ingenious play-calling during their dominance of the NFL in the early 1970s.

Griese led the Dolphins to three straight Super Bowl appearances and back-to-backchampionships in 1972 and 1973. His greatest accomplishment came in 1972, when he returned from a mid-season injury to lead his team to their “Perfect Season” (17-0)championship season, the only time in NFL history a team went undefeated all year.

Griese, who became the 14th passer to join the NFL’s exclusive 25,000-yard club, had a .700 winning percentage (91-39-1) under Miami head coach Don Shula. He appeared in eight NFL All-Star Games, including six Pro Bowls, and was a consensus All-Pro in 1971 and 1977. He was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1990 and his #12 jersey was the first of only three numbers to have been retired by the Dolphins. In 1990, he was one of the original group of players named to the Dolphin Honor Roll and was elected by the fans as the quarterback on the Dolphins’ Silver Anniversary all-time team.

“He’s probably the most unselfish guy I’ve ever been around,” said Shula. “He got as much of a thrill calling the right running play for a touchdown as he did connecting on a bomb. That’s just his makeup.” Dolphin founder Joe Robbie felt the same way, calling Griese “the cornerstone of the franchise.”

Following his retirement as a player, Griese took his football acumen to the broadcast booth, where he excelled as one of the most insightful football commentators in the industry. He spent 29 years on national television — five with NBC Sports’ NFL coverage and 24 seasons with ABC/ESPN covering college football.

Direct, frank commentary and skillful use of a telestrator during replays helped distinguish Griese as an insightful and enlightening analyst. He worked with the legendary Keith Jackson for 12 years on ABC’s weekly coverage of college football, broadcasting the sports’ marquee matchups nationally, as well as the Fiesta, Sugar, Orange and Rose Bowls and several National Championship games. During much of that time he also covered the Miami Dolphins’ pre-season games on television. In 2011, he transitioned from his college TV responsibilities to join the Dolphins’ regular season radio broadcast team.

Griese serves as Chairman of the Board of Advisors for Moffitt Cancer Center. A senior member of the Orange Bowl Committee, he also is a devoted supporter of Judi’s House, a place where children who are grieving the loss of a loved one can go for support in Denver. He has endowed a football scholarship at his alma mater, Purdue University.

He is the father of three sons, one of whom, Brian, is a retired NFL quarterback. The twoco-authored a book, along with Jim Denney, titled “Undefeated” — a biographical account of triumph over great odds, both on the field and off, as their wife/mother succumbed to cancer in 1988, when Brian was only 12. Bob Griese remarried in 1994. He and his wife, Shay Whitney Griese, who is on the Moffitt Board of Directors, live in Jupiter, Florida.

The Grieses published a cookbook, GRIESE SPOON, with all the proceeds going to Moffitt Cancer Center and Judi’s House.
