Danimal came to the Windy City in 1979 after being drafted in the first round from Arkansas. In the years that followed, Hampton’s talents at defensive tackle did not go unnoticed. He was named to the NFL Team of the 80′s by the Pro Football Hall of Fame Board of Selectors, and represented the Chicago Bears in numerous Pro Bowl appearances. However, Hampton’s crowning moment came during the 1985 season, when the Bears captured the title and brought the Super Bowl XX trophy back to championship hungry Chicago. Hampton’s football contributions and accomplishments were recognized in 2002 when he was named to the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
Hampton left the playing field following the 1990 season and from 1991 to 1994 served as an NFL color commentator for NBC Sports. The following two seasons, Hampton was heard in the WGN Radio 720 Bears broadcast booth along with fellow members, Wayne Larrivee and Hub Arkush.
Glen’s interest in broadcasting stemmed from his studies at Brigham Young University where he majored in speech communications. His talent on the football field also grew, as Glen was chosen as an All-American wide receiver in 1984.
He was drafted in 1986 by the Chicago Bears where he played wide receiver and captain of the special teams from 1989-1992. He also proved himself as a pretty good tackler, leading the special teams in tackles during this time. Since retiring from football in 1994, Koz has kept busy, including hosting WGN Radio’s “Sports Central” show on weekend afternoons along with Jim Memolo.
