Glenn Foley (born October 10, 1970 in Woburn, Massachusetts) is a former American football quarterback in the National Football League with the New York Jets from 1994–1998 and the Seattle Seahawks in 1999, and the Arena Football League with the New Jersey Gladiators in 2002.[1]

He played high school football at Cherry Hill High School East in his hometown of Cherry Hill Township, New Jersey.[2]

Foley worked at Sports Radio 950 AM in Philadelphia from August 2006 [3] until March 2008 when WPEN joined ESPN Radio. [4]

His father, Ed, Sr. was a quarterback for Boston College from 1963-1965. His brother Ed, Jr. is the current recruiting coordinator for the Temple Owls and was the head coach of the Fordham Rams from 2004-2005. Another brother, Kevin, played for the University of Maryland and Boston University.[5]

At Boston College

Foley is remembered for engineering the upset of Notre Dame in 1993 to knock the team out of National Championship contention. He lead the Eagles to a 31-13 in the 1993 Blockbuster Bowl. Foley is also remembered for his infamous comment regarding his homestate team Rutgers. When asked about their bowl chances, he said "The only bowl they're going to is the one I just got off of."

New York Jets

Foley started his first game in the 1998 season with a blast. Playing the 49ers, Foley outdid future Hall of Fame QB Steve Young completing 30 of 58 for 416 yards and three touchdowns in the 30-36 loss.
