Vince Young’s NFL career began with plenty of promise after leading the University of Texas to a national championship, but it fizzled quickly; throwing just nine touchdowns to 17 interceptions in your second pro season will do that. Young last threw an NFL pass in 2011 but didn’t formally retire until 2014.
In between, Young went back to Texas to finish his degree, graduating in 2013. Soon after, he was hired by the university to work in the Division of Diversity and Community Engagement. Essentially, Young’s job is to raise money for programs that help kids at Texas who come from low-income backgrounds or are first-generation college students.
It sounds like Young can do some good in that job. Then again, he also filed for bankruptcy in 2014, so he definitely needs the paycheck.
