Marino has spent most of his post-playing career working in TV, previously with HBO (2000 to 2008) and for the past 12 seasons as a studio analyst with CBS.
Besides broadcasting, Marino has dabbled in the restaurant business, opening Marinos Town Tavern in Coral Springs and Fort Lauderdale. Both original locations closed, but others opened under different names.
Among former NFL players, few have been more prominent in national ad campaigns. Marino has been featured in spots for NutriSystem, Papa Johns and Hooters, among others. As a player, he previously appeared in ads for Isotoner gloves. Locally, he has done ads for Maroone Automotive.
Marino, who received an honorary doctorate degree in broadcast journalism from the University of Pittsburgh in 2008, appeared in the 1994 film Ace Ventura: Pet Detective and had cameos in several other films. Hootie and the Blowfish featured Marino in their music video for their popular 1995 single, Only Wanna Be with You.
In April 2012, Marino became the AARPs Mens Life Ambassador a forum that allowed him to share his thoughts on health, fitness and other issues.
Marino and Claire established a charitable foundation in 1992 after their son, Michael, was diagnosed with autism. The foundation provides more than $1 million annually for research, services and treatment programs for children with neurodevelopment disabilities. The organization began an annual Walk about Autism in 2010, raising hundreds of thousands of dollar for several charities.
It is unclear when Claire found out about her husbands infidelity.
This is about the people that youve hurt, that have believed in you, confided in you, trusted you, former NFL coach Herm Edwards said. Trust is a hard thing to get back. You have to earn peoples trust.
Were a collection of our choices. In life, what we do in the dark comes to the light.
