Most people are familiar with Bernie Kosar’s post-football financial woes. He earned $19 million over his 13 seasons in the NFL, but in 2009, he filed for bankruptcy, citing nearly $19 million in debt against just $9 million in assets.
To help him get out of debt, Kosar put his name and stamp of approval on Kosar’s Wood-Fired Grill at the MGM Northfield Park in Ohio. He also spends his days working as a motivational speaker, often discussing leadership.
Sadly, Kosar continues to deal with several serious symptoms that appear to be related to concussions he suffered during his football career, making it tough for him to do too much. However, an experimental treatment program seems to be helping a little.
