Bruce's love for athletics came from his father Steve who was a legendary hall of fame coach at Grinnell. But 15 years ago, in 1997, Steve Kriegel passed away due to pancreatic cancer. Bruce was just 11 years old.
Bruce says, "Right after my dad passed away, I want to follow in his footsteps 'cause he's not here anymore."
Don't expect Bruce to give up his managing duties anytime soon.
His mom Susan says, "He loves football, according to Coach Dune he can never retire, he's set for life."
