FC Dallas player and broadcaster Bobby Rhine remembered

TAGS:  fc dallas, mls, obituary


Bobby Rhine, who played nine seasons with FC Dallas and later worked as a color commentator, died Monday night of an apparent heart attack in Florida, where he was vacationing with his family. Rhine, who is survived by his wife Beven and two children, was 35.

Buzz Carrick recalls Rhine as "always happy, upbeat and positive. Bobby was always willing to stop for a chat or share a joke no matter how busy or overloaded he was. His love of the game was only overshadowed for his love for his family. "

No employee has done more for FC Dallas than Rhine, who came from the University of Connecticut in 1999 and spent his entire MLS career in Dallas (23 goals in 212 games). He then worked for the club in community relations and as a commentator on team broadcasts. "He was so valuable to the team and franchise that he was the rare career player for this one team despite multiple coaching changes," according to Carrick.
