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.

TURKISH CUP W: Fenerbahçe and Eczacıbaşı prevail in marathon semis, Vargas pours in 38 for “Yellow Angels”

Amazing game. Vargas despite best score still seem like unbrushed diamond, which can be even better. I hope coach Terzic could see that. Eda Erdem is also true capitan, not just in ranks but she make joy in team. Antonijevic could also save some net balls, like Ognjenovic normally does. Looking forward to the Finale. Ezaci is very 'beatable'. Reply

Fener should not let Bricio go. It is a massve mistake of Terzic.
If he really wants Mihajlovic, let club buy her too. Reply

ITA W: Fenerbahçe say goodbye to Bricio – Mexican player moves to Scandicci

I read she said earlier that she is leaving to go back to the Italian league. Was she really waived? She is a great player. She is one of the reason why Fenerbahe is doing so well this season along with Vargas. Reply
