About Tim Grunhard
Tim Grunhard spent his entire 11-year NFL career with the Kansas City Chiefs. He has made the area his home for the 20-plus years since. A native of Chicago, he is now ingrained into his “hometown” of Kansas City. Tim coaches here. In addition he does radio here. He invests his time and money in charities here. He’s Kansas City, through and through. He had opportunities to leave KC as a player and many other times since then, but he couldn’t leave.
He was inducted into the Chiefs Hall of Fame during the 2021 season, so his name is on the Ring of Honor. That’s appropriate because the field of Arrowhead Stadium still has some of his blood, sweat and tears sifting through the soil. Make sure you pick up Tim’s book he wrote with David Smale, View from the Center: My Football Life and the Rebirth of Chiefs Kingdom wherever you purchase books and at his site at timgrunhard.com. In addition make sure you follow him on Twitter at @grunny61 and Instagram at @timgrunhard.
