Chad Pennington Biography
Star quarterback for the Miami Dolphins, Chad Pennington was born June 26, 1976 in Knoxville, Tennessee. He was drafted by the New York Jets 18th overall in the 2000 NFL Draft. He played college football at Marshall.
Pennington set school records in several passing categories. Randy Moss, now with the New England Patriots, was Pennington's top receiver at Marshall. He finished fifth in Heisman voting in 1999. Pennington selected by the New York Jets in the first round and eighteenth (18th) overall pick of the 2000 NFL Draft. Pennington finished his career at Marshall with 1,026 of 1,619 completions for 13,423 yards and 115 touchdowns, with only 45 interceptions.
Upon his release from the Jets, it was reported that at least six teams were interested in Pennington. However, only the Minnesota Vikings and the Miami Dolphins were considered as serious contenders. On August 8, Pennington signed a two-year $11.5 million deal with the Miami Dolphins. Contrary to popular belief, Dolphins head coach Tony Sparano said that Pennington would have to compete for the starting job. Due to his performance, he was later announced as the starting quarterback as the Dolphins moved into the regular season.
At this point in the 2008 NFL regular season, Chad has 299 completions for 446 Attempts, with 3453 yards, seventeen touchdowns and seven interceptions. His passer rating is at 96.4, good for second in the NFL. He has started all fifteen games for the Dolphins and helped to lead them to a 10-5 record, and is the first Dolphins quarterback to throw for 3,000 yards in a season since Jay Fiedler did it in 2001. For his role in the Dolphins' turnaround, Pennington received notable MVP consideration from several major media outlets.
Chad and Robin Pennington created the 1st and 10 Foundation in 2003 with the mission to build stronger communities by funding programs and institutions that seek to improve quality of life throughout West Virginia, Tennessee and the New York Metropolitan area.
