- Born on the same day as 'George W. Bush' (qv) and 'Sylvester Stallone' (qv).
- Father died of Lupus when Fred was 17.
- Nearly won the role of Sam Malone on _"Cheers" (1982)_ (qv), but lost it to 'Ted Danson' (qv) when the writers decided they'd rather have the owner of the bar be a baseball player instead of a football player.
- Has one daughter with his ex-wife 'Tracy Vaccaro' (qv).
- Member of the College Football Hall of Fame.
- Once promised to set his hair on fire in the end zone if he ever scored an NFL touchdown. Fortunately, never did.
