About Russ Grimm

Russell Scott Grimm (born May 2, 1959 in Scottdale, Pennsylvania) is a former American football guard for the Washington Redskins of the National Football League. As a collegian, he was an All-American center at the University of Pittsburgh. As a professional, Grimm had multi-selections to both the All-Pro and Pro Bowl teams, and was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2010. Grimm played 11 seasons for the Redskins and was a first team selection to the NFL 1980s All-Decade Team. He is currently the assistant head coach and offensive line coach for the Arizona Cardinals. Grimm is featured in the video game All-Pro Football 2K8. He was drafted in the third round by the Redskins in the 1981 NFL Draft. Upon hearing that he had been drafted by the Redskins, Grimm thought to himself, I'm going to Seattle, not realizing that the Redskins played in the nation's capital.
