Life as a Super Bowl Winner Is Probably Much Better Than Life at PwC

I’m just spitballin’ here, but I don’t think Kansas City Chiefs starting defensive end Tanoh Kpassagnon is regretting his decision to pursue a career in the NFL than a career in public accounting.

The 6-foot-7, 289-pound Kpassagnon had two tackles in the Chiefs 31-20 victory over the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl LIV on Sunday.

What you may not have known is that Kpassagnon, who double-majored in accounting and finance at Villanova University, interned at PwC for two summers.

I’m sure Kpassagnon has nothing but good things to say about his internship with PwC, and maybe P. Dubs will roll out the red carpet for him once his playing days are over. But the dude has made more than $3.2 million so far playing for the Chiefs and is scheduled to earn a base salary of $1,029,257 next season. And he’s getting a Super Bowl ring. And he’s never had to go through a busy season.

Yeah, I think he made the right career choice.
