Have you ever thought which jobs are the most common for athletes after they finish playing career?

  

The following are some of the most common post-paying careers.

Coach/Manager

Many athletes after playing career want to stay in the sport. Some of them became coaches and the sports managers. The talented and successful players mostly became the coaches.

Team Executive (Player Personnel, General Management)

With vast experience in the sport, moving to the front office after playing seems like a logical transition for many athletes. Many of them all around the world went one step further, not just helping run a team, but in fact, owning a piece of it. 

Business Owner

Starting a business requires capital that depends on the magnitude of the job you intend to venture into. With savings accrued from being a pro athlete, you can start a business of your choice. 

Sports Commentator/Broadcaster

Former athletes make the best sports analysts because they see the game through a different lens than fans. They’ve been in the meeting rooms, broken down film, dissected opponents and can lend that expertise to the viewers at home.

Actor/Actress

Acting is a cool high-profile after-retirement career, but generally, only well-known athletes are able to parlay their on-field talents to the screen.

RUS M: Drzyzga parts ways with Lokomotiv after winning Russian championship

I think this was the best decision for the club. With only having 2 foreigner spots, the setter position was the easier position to let go. I think Lokomotiv will transfer a foreign OPP in place. Reply

INTERVIEW: Hippe for WoV – “Live in the moment and make the best out of it”

'Until a year ago, Hippe was an indispensable member of the Germany National Team.' is not correct. She has not been playing for the national team since 2013. Reply

For the first time in history, Italy won’t participate in VNL

Well Sports Fans, the reality is that Italy won't be alone and you can bet more Federations will do the same as this worlwide pandemic evolves. Summer sports for all will not be happening and I can forsee European Leagues holding off until late October and November. Budgets for all clubs and federations are in a holding pattern until we get a better grip on this virus. Its actually a smart decision by the Italians. Hopefully the Atheltes use this time to rest and strengthen their bodies Reply
