Bob is a semi-retired sports executive following a career that spanned 27 years in the NFL (Houston Oilers & Tennessee Titans) and six years with the PGA TOUR. In addition to his sports career, he also served as an account executive with a Nashville-based public relations agency for five years.
During Bob's time with the Titans (1998-2014), he was the club's Vice-President of Community Relations and among his many responsibilities were the team's military outreach initiatives at nearby Fort Campbell where he had the opportunity to meet the Linfoots.
Bob was responsible for the Titans' outreach to charitable organizations throughout the mid-south which increased his awareness of the great work done by so many non-profits. He has spent much of his post-retirement years serving as a volunteer primarily with the American Cancer Society's Hope Lodge, Middle Tennessee Chapter of National Football Foundation & College Hall of Fame, and Simmons Bank Open benefitting the Snedeker Foundation, a PGA TOUR event.
The opportunity to join Gary and Mari as a founding board member is a dream come true for Bob as he considers both of them true American heroes. Bob says the American Mobility Project's mission touches his heart and he's eager to continue the AMP board's effort so that we can continue to enhance the lives of individuals living with disabilities as we did with Emily and Hope!
Hyde is a native of Tullahoma, TN and lists both Houston, TX, and Jacksonville, FL as former hometowns before returning to Nashville in 1998, where he currently resides. He attended both Middle Tennessee State University and the University of Houston and has two adult daughters, Ashley and Hannah.
