Ben Roethlisberger hasn't officially retired yet, but it should be announced in the near future. With Roethlisberger's 18-year Hall of Fame career over, Liz Mullen of the Sports Business Journal recently talked with Roethlisberger's agent, Ryan Tollner, about his career and what he plans on doing after it.
Tollner doesn't see Roethlisberger taking up coaching or broadcasting like many other retired football players.
“I don’t think he has any aspirations to do anything in the public eye. He is so invested in his family and being as present to them as he can be,” Tollner said.
Tollner's statement isn't all that surprising, as Roethlisberger has previously stated that once he rides off into the sunset that he's going to be completely focused on his family and raising his three kids.
Along with being a family man, Roethlisberger also plans on expanding God's Kingdom, as he mentioned after the loss to the Chiefs in the wild-card game.
Tollner said Roethlisberger is also working on something with his father to give back to people on a personal basis.
“He and his dad are working on a plan to host some father-and-son retreats on some land they own outside of Pittsburgh that will be very faith-centered and really try to enrich the bond between fathers and sons,” Tollner said.
