We are not sure how Angel and Merril first met or when they started dating, but we do know she accompanied him along with son Beau at his “Hoge-Ward Celebrity Golf Classic for Children” at Southpointe this past May 2014.
Hoge lives in Fort Thomas, Kentucky with his son Beau (born 1997) and daughter Kori (born 1993). Just like his father, Hoge’s son Beau, is a star high school football player in Fort Thomas, Ky. Beau was featured in WTAE-TV’s Chronicle “Concussions and Our Kids.”
When Hoge was playing for the Pittsburgh Steelers, his wife Toni, who had previously resided in Kentucky, did not want to live in Pittsburgh. Accordingly, he gave in to her choice and Fort Thomas became their home. Toni and Merril are now divorced.
Merril Hoge played eight seasons at running back for the NFL’s Pittsburgh Steelers from 1987-1993. He played one year with the Chicago Bears and retired after the 1994 season. Since 1996, Hodge has been a football analyst for ESPN television.
