Robert Edward Bercich (born November 9, 1936 in Chicago, Illinois) is a former American football safety in the National Football League for the Dallas Cowboys. He played college football at Michigan State University.
Bercich attended Argo Community High School, before moving on to Michigan State University. As a sophomore, he was moved between halfback and fullback. He became a starter at fullback as a junior and split time with Park Baker.
New York Giants
The New York Giants selected Bercich in the fifteenth round (179th overall) of the 1959 NFL Draft with a future draft pick, which allowed the team to draft him before his college eligibility was over. He was also drafted by the Los Angeles Chargers in the second round of the 1960 AFL Draft. He signed with the Giants on December 8, 1959, but was released on September 5, 1960.
On September 8, 1960, he was claimed off waivers by the Dallas Cowboys. He became the first starter (6 starts) at strong safety in franchise history, while splitting time with Gary Wisener (3 starts) and Fred Doeling (3 starts).
In 1961, he suffered a concussion during the seventh game against the New York Giants and did not play another game in the season. The next year he missed time with injuries during pre-season and was released before the start of the 1962 season.
