Michael Irvin

Michael Irvin is a three time Super Bowl Champ who played for the Dallas Cowboys. The retired NFLer earned a spot in the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2007. Before getting drafted by the league in 1988, Irvin made his mark in college at the University of Miami. He won the National Championships in 1987 as a Miami Hurricane. Irvin went after the mirrorball with pro partner Anna Demidova on Season Nine of “Dancing With the Stars,” but walked away without the trophy, finishing seventh. He now puts his sports knowledge to use on the NFL Network as an on-air personality. He’s also appeared in the films “The Longest Yard” and “Jerry Maguire.” Irvin was born on March 5, 1996 in Fort Lauderdale, FL. He is the 15th of 17 children. He married his wife Sandy Harrell in June 1990 and they have four children. His son, Michael Irvin II inherited more than just his dad’s name, but his athletic prowess. He has followed in his father’s footsteps to play football at the University of Miami. Irvin has had a few run-ins with the law over the years. On March 4, 1996, he was arrested in a motel room when police came to investigate a noise complaint. Cops discovered two topless dancers, a former teammate, and cocaine and marijuana in the room with Irvin. He was indicted on second-degree felony charges of cocaine possession and misdemeanor marijuana charges. A man was arrested for attempting to extort Irvin and a cop was arrested for hiring a hitman to kill the ex-football player. Irvin pleaded no contest and received four years probation, a $10,000 fine, and 800 hours of community service and was suspended for the first four games of the 1996 season. In 2007, Irvin alleges he fell victim to blackmail. He found a new appreciation for his recognizability in 2011 when someone was about to attempt carjack him, but changed his mind at the last minute upon realizing it was Michael Irvin behind the wheel.
