Kurt Gouveia


Kurt Keola Gouveia (born September 14, 1964 in Honolulu, Hawaii) is a former professional American football linebacker who played 13 seasons in the National Football League and one season in the XFL. During his career, he played for the Washington Redskins (1986–1994; 1999), the Philadelphia Eagles (1995), and the San Diego Chargers (1996–1998). In 2001, he also played for the Las Vegas Outlaws in the now-defunct XFL. Gouveia played college football for Brigham Young University and was a member of their 1984 National Championship team. He was selected by the Redskins in the eighth round of the 1986 NFL Draft. Gouveia sustained a knee injury in training camp as a rookie and did not play during the 1986 NFL season.

In his 13 NFL seasons, Gouveia played in 184 games and his career totals include 73 starts in 151 regular season games, 819 tackles, ten interceptions, eight forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries.

Gouveia played a majority of his NFL career with the Redskins and was a member of both their 1987 and 1991 Super Bowl Championship teams. During the 1991 postseason, he made an interception in each Redskins' three playoff wins (including one in Super Bowl XXVI). Up to that point, he had only intercepted two passes in his entire career.

After his retirement as a player, Gouveia has coached linebackers at the professional level. He is currently the linebackers coach for the Sacramento Mountain Lions of the United Football League.

Gouveia's son Jeron Gouveia-Winslow plays football at Virginia Tech.

Gouveia is of Portuguese descent.
