Brian Billick Once Appeared on Match Game Back in the Seventies

By Jason Lisk

Here is more late seventies goodness, with former Ravens coach Brian Billick appearing on the old game show Match Game. The leather jacket is top notch, as is the immaculately maintained hair. It’s a little disappointing that he didn’t have a mustache, though. Get with the times, Brian.

Billick first appears at the 1:08 mark, letting the audience know that “up until a few weeks ago, I was playing professional football.” Billick was drafted in the 11th round in 1977 by the San Francisco 49ers, but never appeared in a NFL game, which would place this appearance sometime that year.
