Doug Flutie was the Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback at Boston College, who famously threw the “Hail Flutie” touchdown pass in a game against the University of Miami in November of 1984. Flutie then went from the United States Football League (USFL) to the Chicago Bears, then up to the Canadian Football League, where he was a six-time winner of the CFL’s Most Outstanding Player award. Flute returned back to the NFL, where he was best known for winning the starting quarterback job of the Buffalo Bills.
He finished out his playing career with the San Diego Chargers, and then briefly with the New England Patriots. After retiring, Flutie served as a college football analyst for ESPN and ABC, and then NBC Sports as a color commentator for Notre Dame Football.
