New Staffing Firm to Address Mass Unemployment, Financial Woes of Former NFL Players

Forbes (01/31/14) David Lariviere

With the average National Football League career lasting only 4.6 years, most players have not earned enough money to retire after their football careers end. A new staffing firm, TEAM Services, has been opened to place former professional athletes in crowd management jobs serving the athletic and entertainment industry. The company is headquartered in Los Angeles, with branch offices in Cincinnati and New Orleans and plans to expand elsewhere within a year.

Anthony Muñoz, a Hall of Famer and 11-time Pro-Bowler who is co-managing the Cincinnati office with his son, says professional athletes generally do not have time to develop workforce skills while they are playing sports, making it difficult for them to find jobs after their sports careers end. “They’re trying to compete with people their own age who have already been working in business for several years so those people have a great advantage,” he says.
