Ex-Tide QB Croyle Settling Back in T-Town
Former Alabama QB Brodie Croyle is proof of how easy it can be to go home again.
After retiring from the NFL last May, the now 30-year-old has settled into life back in Tuscaloosa, AL. He currently works for IngeWood Land Company — which specializes in real estate and timberland sales — and is also pursuing his Alabama Real Estate License.
While Croyle’s pro career lacked any significant on-the-field milestones, fans will point out that it was notable for one big thing: The introduction of his wife, Kelli, to the world at large during the 2007 broadcast of HBO’s “Hard Knocks” — proof that Alabama QBs had a penchant for beautiful significant others long before AJ McCarron.
At Alabama, Croyle — the son of former Crimson Tide DE John Croyle — was a three-year starter at QB and left school with more career passing yards (6,382) than anyone else (a record later broken by John Parker Wilson). In his final collegiate game, Croyle turned in an MVP performance in a 13-10 victory over Texas Tech in the 2006 Cotton Bowl.
Count on Croyle either watching at home or being in the stands at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta for his alma mater’s season opener against Virginia Tech on August 31. Brodie Croyle profile
