Former NFL coach Mike Tice may have found a more lucrative -- albeit rsiky -- way to make a living.
The former head coach of the Minnesota Vikings connected big time at Del Mar Surfside Race Place on Thursday, nailing the only winning ticket on the Pick Six. The payoff was more than $100,000.
Former Seahawk Mike Tice had the only winning Pick Six ticket Thursday at Del Mar, worth $100,796.20. Well done!
-- Vince Bruun (@vincebemerald) August 9, 2013 This sure beats a previous way Tice found to earn some extra scratch.
In 2005, Tice was fined $100,000 -- that number, again -- for organizing and profiting from a Super Bowl ticket scalping operation within the Vikings organization. He later admitted that these charges were true and the NFL fined him $100,000. At the time it was the largest fine ever handed down to a head coach in NFL history.
