Dr. Milton McColl, M.D. (born August 28, 1959 in Oak Park, Illinois) was a National Football League linebacker from 1981 through 1988. During that span he appeared in two Super Bowls: Super Bowl XVI and Super Bowl XIX for the San Francisco 49ers. He played college football at Stanford University. He is the son of former Stanford and NFL end Bill McColl.


McColl is a graduate of South Hills High School in West Covina, California. He played seven seasons for the 49ers and one for the Los Angeles Raiders at linebacker. He stood 6-foot-6 and weighed 250 pounds. His father, who played for the Chicago Bears, became an orthopedic surgeon. Milt and brother Duncan and their father Bill all played college football for Stanford.

He attended medical school at Stanford University and became an M.D. in 1988. He played for the 49ers during medical school, but after retiring from football he chose to put his medical residency on hold and spent the next twenty plus years developing medical devices. During that time, he also volunteered at a local primary care free clinic treating underserved patients. Now that three out of his four sons are adults, McColl decided to "go back" and complete his residency in family medicine at Stanford-O'Connor, where he is in the class of 2019.[1]

Personal life[edit]

McColl resides with his wife, Cindy, and their four sons in Northern California. McColl's youngest son, Patrick, was drafted by the Oakland A's in the 10th round of the 2019 MLB Draft.
