Trivia

  • A young Billick was a contestant on the game show Match Game in 1977. He appeared shortly after ending his short professional career as a player and joining his alma mater Redlands (Calif.) High School as a coach. He lost 5-0 causing host Gene Rayburn to quip, "Boy, I hope you signed that contract already. They might think twice after seeing this performance."
  • Was a contestant on "Jeopardy!"
  • Although he graduated from Brigham Young University, Billick is not a Mormon, much like fellow BYU alum Jim McMahon.[2]
  • Brian is registered as a Republican in Maryland.
  • Was selected to speak in May 2007 at the Johns Hopkins University undergraduate diploma ceremony.
  • Family name was originally Ballick, changed by his great-grandfather, William Ballick.
  • Is known for his uncanny resemblance to 7th Heaven star Stephen Collins.
  • Before the Ravens made the playoffs for the first time in 2000, Billick forbade his players from using either the terms "playoffs" or "Super Bowl." Tony Siragusa was fined for violating this rule. The players then created the term "Festivus" for the playoffs and "Festivus Maximus" for the Super Bowl, taken from the popular television show Seinfeld.[citation needed] Once they earned a playoff berth, the "P-word" ban was lifted, and the team focussed on not just the playoffs, but on winning the Super Bowl.
  • When eliminated from the playoffs, Billick has been used as a studio analyst by the ABC Sports coverage of the Wild Card round.

Book Brian Billick Speaker Keynote Speaking Engagement, Corporate Event - Your Booking Agent for Brian Billick (812 words)
Brian Billick has now coached a Viking offense that set the NFL record for the most points scored in a season - 556 in 1998; and a 2000 Ravens' defense that smashed the fewest points allowed standard (for a 16-game season), a record once held by the now mythic 1985 Chicago Bears.
Brian Billick directed the best team in the Ravens' five-year history in the 2000 season when the team finished the year with 11 consecutive victories, including the playoffs.
