Sammy Knight did pretty damn well for himself over an 11-year NFL career. The guy went from being undrafted in 1997 to having a long career that inlcuded 42 INTs and a Pro Bowl selection in 2001. He also made some coin. But now a USC assistant coach, Sam is looking to unload his Texas house in the affluent Woodlands neighborhood.
The main highlights: the insane pool and those fountains in the kiddie pool. So damn cool.
How did Knight afford such extravagance? Dude did pretty well for himself over the years. $2.5mm in 2001. $1.6mm in 2006. Etc. But there’s always the post-NFL life of working for squat as a grad assistant at USC. Doesn’t exactly pay the heating bill. Not that we’re saying Knight doesn’t have the money to heat this pool in the winter. Have no idea.
