It didn’t take Patrick Kerney long to get on with the rest of his life. The former Pro Bowl defensive end for the Seahawks, who announced his retirement two weeks ago, was accepted this week to the Columbia Business School.
“Off and running, in another direction,” Kerney said. “Back to school – a 33-year-old student.”
He had participated in NFL-sponsored seminars at the Wharton School of Business and Harvard the past two offseasons.
“That’s what sort of got me interested in the idea,” Kerney said. “I had so much fun with those experiences.”
Kerney also has no qualms about leaving the game.
“I loved my 11 years,” he said. “I poured everything I had into it, so that way I get to walk away with no regrets.”
