Among players, Simon Fletcher, Sebastian Vollmer and Robert Newhouse played in three Super Bowls. Chad O’Shea has been an assistant with the Patriots for four Super Bowls.

O’Shea has won the most Super Bowl rings (three). Glenn Cadrez, Sebastian Vollmer and Antowain Smith each won two Super Bowls.

Most UH players in one Super Bowl: three each in XIII (1979), XXIV (1990), 50 (2016), LI (2017) and LII (2018).
