Brian Michael Brennan (born February 15, 1962 in Bloomfield, Michigan) is a former professional American football player who was selected by the Cleveland Browns in the fourth round of the 1984 NFL Draft. He graduated from Brother Rice High School (Michigan).[1] He was a teammate of QB Doug Flutie at Boston College and played in 9 NFL seasons from 1984 to 1992 for the Browns, the Cincinnati Bengals, and the San Diego Chargers.

In 2005, when Brennan and fellow Cleveland Browns broadcasters Bob Golic and Reggie Rucker were forced to buy time during a preseason game due to a lightning storm, the three achieved local stardom after a now-legendary on-air breakdown.[citation needed]

Brennan is currently an executive at Key Bank. His nieces are Haley Brennan, Brianna Brennan and Olivia D'Angelo.

He has three brothers named Marty, James(Jim), and Charlie. His sisters are Bridget and Therese
