Chuck Long attended North High School and lived in Wheaton, Illinois. Born in Norman, Oklahoma, Long later moved to Illinois. He wasn't highly recruited (other offers were Northern Illinois and Northwestern) and eventually accepted a scholarship to play at Iowa for Hayden Fry.

In 1985, Long led the Hawkeyes to the #1 ranking during the season, and won the Big Ten title outright for the first time in 27 years.

Long's Iowa teams compiled a 35–13–1 record. He graduated with 10,461 passing yards and 74 touchdowns on 782 completions. Long holds the best completion percentage of any college quarterback all-time who has attempted more than 1,000 career passes. He was also the first Big Ten player and just the second player in college football history to throw for more than 10,000 yards in a career. He is believed to be the only collegiate player to participate in five bowl games.

Long accumulated numerous awards. He won the 1985 Maxwell Award, given to the nation's top player and the Davey O'Brien Award, given to the nation's top quarterback. He was a 3x All-Big Ten Quarterback, the Big Ten Player of the Year and a consensus first team All-American. Finally, Long was the runner-up for the Heisman Trophy. Long was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 1999 and the Iowa Sports Hall of Fame in 2001.

Professionally, Long was drafted #12 overall by the Detroit Lions in the 1986 NFL Draft, Long's NFL career was disappointing. His best season was 1987, in which he threw 2,598 yards, 11 touchdowns and 20 interceptions. Long played for the Lions from 1986–1989 before being traded to the Los Angeles Rams in 1990. After one year in Los Angeles, Long returned to Detroit for the 1991 season, though he did not attempt any passes.

After football, Long coached at Iowa (during transition from Fry to Ferentz), Oklahoma, San Diego State (head coach), Kansas, Norman High School (OK), and most recently the St. Louis BattleHawks of the XFL. He also is a broadcaster for the Big Ten Network.

He was born 2/18/1963 and is 58 years old.
