Outside the office, Brad squeezes in as much golf as possible while still spending time with his wife, son, teenage step-daughters and two rescue dogs. On Saturdays in the fall he is pretty much glued to the tv set watching college football – plus he is well on the way to accomplishing his goal of visiting every Power 5 college football stadium in the country.
