Paddy Driscoll (January 11, 1895 - June 28, 1968) was a Pro Football Hall of Fame quarterback. At 5' 11" and 160 pounds, he was not big, but he made a big impact on American football during the decade of the 1920s. He was particularly known for his drop kicks and punting. In 1924, he recorded a 50 yard drop-kicked field goal and in 1925 he had a record 4 drop-kicked field goals in a single game.
Driscoll was born in Evanston, Illinois. After attending Northwestern University, he played the 1919 season with the Hammond Pros (pre-NFL). From 1920-1925, he led the Chicago Cardinals and was also head coach from 1920 to 1922. In 1926, prompted by a fear that he would sign with the new AFL then being formed, the Cardinals traded him to the Chicago Bears where he continued to carry his team until he retired after the 1929 season. Later, he was head coach of the Bears for two seasons (1956 and 1957), compiling a record of 14-10-1.
Driscoll was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1965 and is a member of the NFL 1920s All-Decade Team. In 1974, he was also inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame.
Driscoll died June 28, 1968 in Chicago, Illinois.
