- Beathard comes from a family steeped in football tradition. His grandfather, Bobby Beathard, spent 38 years working in the NFL, including 22 seasons as general manager of the Washington Redskins (1978-88) and San Diego Chargers (1989-2000). As a general manager.
- During his time at Iowa, Beathard earned the nickname “Sunshine” from Hawkeye fans because his long, flowing hair resembled the character with the same nickname from the football movie “Remember The Titans.” In 2015, he cut off his hair and donated it to Wigs For Kids, a non-profit organization that makes wigs to support for children who have lost their hair due to medical issues at no cost to children or their families.
