Rob Doyle was a product of Andrean High School in Gary,
Ind. A standout football player in high school, he was named
honorable mention all-state quarterback his senior year. When
he arrived at DePauw in 1978, the football tigers weren’t a
strong team. Several coaches had served brief stints, and
there was little continuity. Doyle became starting
quarterback his sophomore year, but the team finished a
disappointing 2-7 record. Even so, the team was turning
around. He was named most valuable offensive player that
year. The following year, he led the Tigers to a 7-2-1
record, and in 1981, under new coach Nick Mourouzis, finished 9-1
and ranked 9th in the final NCAA Division III poll.
Doyle broke Tiger season marks in attempts, completions, yards
passing and touchdown passes, and twice tied the school record of
four TD passes in one game. He received a law degree from
Indiana University and is a partner in an Indianapolis firm.
