Glory days: Mudd knows a thing or two about playing in the NFL, although his playing days were cut short due to a knee injury that forced him to retire in 1971. A guard, he was drafted in 1964 by the San Francisco 49ers where he had three Pro Bowl seasons (1966, '67 and '68) and two All-Pro selections ('67 and '68). He was traded to the Chicago Bears in 1969.

Coaching experience: In 1972, Mudd took a coaching job at the University of California. He spent one season with the Golden Bears before leaving for a coaching job with the San Diego Chargers (1974-76), followed by coaching jobs with the 49ers (1977), Seattle Seahawks (1978-82), Cleveland Browns (1982-88), Kansas City Chiefs (1989-92), again with Seattle (1993-97) and Indianapolis Colts (1998-2009). Mudd won a Super Bowl in 2006 with Indianapolis. The Colts allowed the fewest sacks during Mudd's 12-year tenure in 2006. Mudd was out of football last season.
