Besides football he also earned varsity letters in basketball and track and field. He was also an honor student.

He earned consensus Second-team All-Big Ten honors twice and was named an All-American by the FWAA during his senior season, becoming the Wildcats' first offensive lineman to win national recognition since Chris Hinton.

National Football League

New Orleans Saints

Strief was drafted by the New Orleans Saints in the seventh round of the 2006 NFL Draft. After backing up Jon Stinchcomb for five years, in the 2011 season he became the team's starting right tackle with Stinchcomb's retirement and part of the Saints' offensive line that won the Madden Most Valuable Protectors Award as the best offensive line in the NFL. (He also shared in the same award as a backup in 2009.)

Strief was a 2013 Pro Bowl alternate but was not selected to the game.

Strief re-signed with the Saints on a five-year extension during free agency in 2014. This is the second time he re-signed in free agency.

Strief was elected as the Saints' representative to the National Football League Players Association Board of Player Representatives for the 2014 season. He has also served as an offensive team captain since the 2012 season.

In 2017, Strief suffered a knee injury in Week 1 against the Minnesota Vikings and missed the next two weeks. He returned in Week 4, only to re-injure the knee and was placed on injured reserve on October 3, 2017.

On March 12, 2018, Strief announced his retirement from the NFL.

New Orleans Saints

On March 4, 2021, Strief was hired by the New Orleans Saints as their assistant offensive line coach under head coach Sean Payton, replacing Brendan Nugent, who was promoted to offensive line coach.

On July 25, 2018, Strief was named as the play-by-play voice announcer for Saints radio broadcasts, replacing the retired Jim Henderson. Strief worked with color analyst and former teammate Deuce McAllister on the broadcasts.

Strief was previously married to former Saintsation Mandy Schexnaydre.

Since moving to New Orleans, Strief has set up a foundation which organizes youth camps and aids Milford student-athletes. In 2009, he produced a cookbook for charity entitled When You're the Biggest Guy on the Team!
