Alumni Focus: Mike Golic

Mike Golic was the type of player Philadelphians really appreciated.  He was a no nonsense, hand in the dirt take no crap kind of guy.  Golic constantly did the dirty work next to the likes of Jerome Brown and Reggie White.  Golic often tied up interior lineman to give Jerome and Reggie a chance to get to the QB.  The moment that sums up Mike Golic to me was a 1989 game against the Cowboys where the play ended up as a sack for Golic.  After Aikman goes down Terry Bradshaw gave credit to everyone except Golic.

Taken in the 10th round, pick 255 of the 1985 NFL Draft out of Notre Dame Mike Golic spent 9 years in the league.  After two seasons in Houston totaling 1 sack he was off to Philadelphia.  For the next 6 season from 1987 – 1992 he wore Kelly Green.  In 6 season with the Eagles he tallied 10.5 sacks and 3 INTS while playing in 82 games.  After stops in Houston and Philly Mike finished his career with a season in Miami playing for the Dolphins.  He retired after the 1993 season.

After ending his career Golic immediately entered in the broadcast world.  He worked at ESPN and ABC covering the NFL and NCAA.  Most individuals know Mike Golic for his tenure at ESPN where he’s the host of the morning radio show Mike & Mike.
