Douglas Robert Zachariah Brien (born November 24, 1970) was an American football placekicker. He played for the New York Jets, the Chicago Bears, Minnesota Vikings, the Indianapolis Colts, the New Orleans Saints, and the San Francisco 49ers. Brien was picked in the 3rd round of the 1994 NFL Draft by San Francisco out of University of California, Berkeley.


High School career

Brien attended De La Salle High School in Concord, California and was teammates with retired Green Bay Packer offensive lineman Aaron Taylor.

College career

At California, he left leading the school in all-time points with 288 points, and in field goal accuracy, hitting 56 out of 80 attempts, hitting 80% of his field goals for his career. Off the field, he was a member of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon Fraternity. He graduated with a BA degree in Political Economy of Industrial Societies (PEIS) in 1994.

Pro career

He is best known for missing two potential game-winning field goal attempts in the final two minutes of the New York Jets' 2004 AFC divisional playoff game with the Pittsburgh Steelers.[1] He was released by the team a couple of months after the game, but later signed by the Chicago Bears, from whom he was released later on in the 2005 season.

As a rookie, Brien won a Super Bowl ring with the 49ers after their 49-26 victory over the San Diego Chargers in Super Bowl XXIX.
