Biography:

Sports Speaker Dan Marino is a former NFL record-breaking quarterback who led the Dolphins to ten playoff appearances and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2005. He is regularly considered to be one of the best players in NFL history.

Marino’s career leaped to a tremendous start in his first NFL year as he became the only rookie quarterback to lead a conference in passing, as well as the first rookie quarterback to ever start in a Pro Bowl. In addition, Marino set rookie season records for highest passes completed and highest passer rating.  In 1984, Marino led the Dolphins to the Super Bowl and won the NFL MVP. He also broke six NFL full-season passing records in 1984. In 1985, Marino led the Dolphins back to the AFC Championship game and led the league in yards and touchdown passes. In 1988, he became the first quarterback in NFL history to throw for 4,000 or more yards in four different seasons. Marino again led the Dolphins to the AFC championship in 1992, which marked the fifth time he lead the NFL in passing yards. After suffering an injury in 1993, Marino came back powerfully the next year and led the Dolphins to a 10-6 record, for which he was awarded the NFL’s Comeback Player of the Year.

After retiring in 2000, Marino was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2005. Marino now serves as an analyst for CBS’s Sunday pregame show entitled The NFL Today. Marino received an honorary doctorate degree in broadcast journalism from his alma mater, the University of Pittsburgh, in 2008. During this year, Marino gave the commencement speech for his university.

Marino has been featured in advertising campaigns for various organizations such as Papa John’s, NutriSystem weight loss programs, and Hooters. Marino is currently the AARP’s “Men’s Life Ambassador,” where he shares his expertise and opinions on men’s interests, including lifestyle, aging and community service, and fitness. In 1992, The Dan Marino Foundation was established, which has provided over $22 million to research, services, and treatment programs for children with neurodevelopmental disabilities. In1998, Marino was named the NFL Man of the Year for his generous charitable works off the field.
