The year of Debbie and Mike’s marriage is unknown, but we do know they have been married for long a time.
Tirico and his wife Debbie have two grown children together and have lived in Ann Arbor, Michigan since 1999.
Tirico relocated to Ann Arbor with his wife, Debbie, to be closer to family.
The decision to move, and stay, in the area is an interesting one, given the fact that his job offers him an opportunity to live just about anywhere in the United States. But, for the Tirico family, Ann Arbor (and Detroit, as well) is home. And they wouldn’t have it any other way.
Debbie was born in Trenton, and was an all-state basketball and softball player in high school. She is a four-time letter winner in women’s basketball and a tri-captain of the 1989 team. Deborah played in the 1988 NCAA tournament and SU’s second postseason appearance.
She graduated with a B.S. magna cum laude in finance from the School of Management. She was Big East All-Academic and an ECAC Scholar Athlete. Her teammates honored her for outstanding courage and desire (’87) and as most dedicated (’89).
After graduation, Debbie began her career in finance at Carrier Corporation, a subsidiary of United Technologies Corporation. In 1997, she joined HSB as a Vice President of Business Development and spent two years growing the engineering consulting business. She later earned an MBA from NYU’s Stern School of Business. In 1999, Tirico moved to Ann Arbor, Michigan, where she has devoted her time to local non-profit organizations.
Mike Tirico grew up in Queens, New York and graduated from Syracuse University.
Mike is unsure of his heritage because he does not know his biological parents. Mike stated “Yeah. I’d like to find out the truth at some point, so I can answer questions for my kids.”
Currently, Tirico is an announcer for ESPN’s Monday Night Football. Also, he calls a multitude of programming for ESPN/ABC, including college basketball, the NBA, golf and tennis. He is also one of the anchors of the 2014 World Cup along with Bob Ley.
