His son Mike Golic, Jr., a Notre Dame offensive lineman, signed this past weekend with the Pittsburgh Steelers as a free agent.

“We were all together at Notre Dame with him – Chris (his wife), Jake (youngest son, also a football player at ND), and Sydney (daughter, who is on ND swim team),” Golic, co-host of ESPN’s Mike & Mike show told the frontrow.espn.com. blog.  “So, it was a very special moment, seeing a child of yours realizing a dream, whether it’s football or any other passion that person has,” said the proud dad. “He’s just happy the process is now over and he can just concentrate on what they all want to concentrate on, and that is playing football.”

Mike Jr. is not the only son of an ESPN employee to receive an NFL invite, according to the ESPN website. Duron Carter, son of ESPN NFL analyst Cris Carter, was invited to join the Minnesota Vikings, the team his father played for during most of his Hall of Fame career.
