We’ve all heard about the struggles of former NFL players to keep their money once their playing careers are over. Playing days don’t last very long, and quite often former players found themselves in dire financial straits rather quickly. Former Notre Dame star, Cleveland Browns bust and current Denver Broncos third-stringer Brady Quinn leads a group of proactive players who are doing something to stop this trend.
Quinn, along with Byron Leftwich, John Beck, Charlie Batch, and Bruce Gradkowski are among the 66 players who have enrolled in the NFL Business Management and Entrepreneurial Program at Harvard Business School and the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University.
Since the program’s inception in 2005, more than 700 players have participated.
“We are excited to continue this program which has been beneficial to so many of our players,” said NFL Vice President of Player Engagement Troy Vincent, who has attended each of the business management programs.
