Mike Ditka Net Worth $30 Million

So how rich is Mike Ditka? Sources estimate that Mike’s net worth is $30 million, the majority of his wealth is, of course, from his career as a football player and coach. Although Mike is already 75 years old, he still continues working, so there is a high possibility that Mike Ditka’s net worth willincrease.

Mike Ditka studied at the Aliquippa High School, where he played American football under the coach Press Maravich. Later he continued his studies at the University of Pittsburgh, planning to become a dentist, where he also played American football very successfully, as well as baseball and basketball. Mike became one of the best football players in the university’s history. In the 1961 NFL Draft, Mike was picked by the “Chicago bears”. Soon he had a huge impact on the team’s wins. Mike continued playing in this team for five years, and was then traded to the “Philadelphia Eagles”. He did not play in this team for a long time, as in 1969 he was again traded, to play for the “Dallas Cowboys”. These playing years had a significant effect on Ditka’s net worth, plus during his playing career, Mike won many different awards. For example, NFL Rookie of Year, Super Bowl MVP, champion and others. What is more, Mike was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 1986, and became the first tight-end ever inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1988.

In 1972, Mike retired from his career as a professional football player, but he was hired as the couch of “Dallas Cowboys” almost immediately, which also had a huge impact on the growth of Mike Ditka’s net worth. In 1982 he became the coach of “Chicago Bears” and worked in this team until 1992, during which time he was named as the NFL Coach of the Year twice, which also had an influence on Mike’s net worth. In 1997 Ditka became the coach of “New Orleans Saints”, and finally retired in 2000.

In addition to his career as a coach, Mike has also appeared on such TV shows as “Monday Night Football” and “Sunday NFL Countdown”. He has also acted in the movie called “Quarterback Attack with Mike Ditka” and appeared in other projects. He has also been involved in several political campaigns, and in addition is the owner of a chain of restaurants.

In his private life, Mike Ditka has married twice, to Marge (1961-73), and to Diana since 1977, with whom he has four children.
