1993 Studio Steve Buechele

Hobby is golf: Buechele was playing in John Elway’s charity golf tournament in 1998 when he was informed that his wife was pregnant – a surprise to Buechele, who had had a vasectomy. That baby, Shane Buechele, is now the quarterback for the Texas Longhorns. Buechele’s son Tanner is an assistant golf pro, and his daughter Jordan played golf in high school.

Favorite sports announcer is Dick Enberg: Buechele grew up in southern California when Enberg was the voice of the UCLA basketball team.

Favorite player as a kid was Jerry West: Another LA basketball icon.

Might have been a rancher if he hadn’t been an athlete: Buechele stayed in Arlington after his career, so presumably did not own his own ranch like his teammate Nolan Ryan.

Pet peeve is losing the remote control: I wonder if now he’s always losing his cell phone.

Where he is now: Bench coach for the Texas Rangers.
