Joe Montana Bio
Joe Montana is a retired professional American football player and current venture capital investor who has a net worth of $150 million dollars. He is most famous for being the longtime quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers, but he played for the Kansas City Chiefs as well. He has earned significantly more money in retirement off venture investments and endorsement deals than he ever did during his playing days from salary and endorsements.
During his NFL career, Joe earned a surprisingly paltry $25.5 million in TOTAL salary. His highest single season earnings was $4 million, which he earned in 1993 and 1994 from the Kansas City Chiefs. Earning $4 million in 1993 is the same as earning around $7.5 million in today’s dollars. His $25.5 million career earnings is worth the same as around $53 million today.
A quarterback with a hugely successful record, he was an 8-time Pro Bowl selection, led the 49ers to 4 Super Bowl wins, and was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2000. Montana is known by several nicknames, including “Joe Cool,” “The Comeback Kid,” and “Golden Joe.” Noted for his ability to remain calm under pressure, he enjoyed a truly exceptional career that left a permanent mark on the world of NFL.
Outside of his NFL salary, Joe earned tens of millions in additional income thanks to endorsement. Those endorsement contracts have actually continued up to the present. In fact, Joe has easily earned much more money from endorsements IN RETIREMENT than he earned in total salary. He has appeared in commercials for Guinness, Schick, Papa Johns, Mastercard, AT&T and more.

Notre Dame didn’t allow freshman to play on the varsity football team, so Montana didn’t contribute to the team until his sophomore year. By that time, NCAA Championship-winning coach Ara Parseghian has resigned as a result of health problems, and his replacement, Dan Devine, was impressed by Joe’s performance at spring practice in 1975 and decided to start him in the final spring game. Montana had to sit out the 1976 season due to a separated shoulder, but he played as a quarterback in 1977; Notre Dame’s record that season was 11-0, earning the team the AP/Coaches national title.
Montana attended Waverly Elementary, Finleyville Junior High, and Ringgold High School; he played football, baseball, and basketball as a high school student and was offered a basketball scholarship (which he turned down) by North Carolina State. Joe was a backup during his first 2 years on the football team but became the starting quarterback during his junior year, and “Parade” magazine named him an All-American quarterback during his senior year (1974). Montana also sang in the school’s choir and was senior class vice president, and he accepted a scholarship to Notre Dame. Ringgold High School’s football stadium has been officially known as Joe Montana Stadium since 2006.
Montana became the 49ers’ starting quarterback in 1980 and played the position until 1990. In 1982, the 49ers won Super Bowl XVI, defeating the Cincinnati Bengals 26-21. Joe won the Super Bowl MVP Award, an honor he would receive again in 1985 and 1990. In 1985, San Francisco beat the Miami Dolphins at Super Bowl XIX with a score of 38-16. Montana sat out part of the 1986 season due to a back injury, but his impressive performance after his recovery earned him the 1986 NFL Comeback Player of the Year Award. In 1989, the 49ers narrowly defeated the Bengals in Super Bowl XXIII, winning 20-16. In 1990, Montana led his team to another Super Bowl win, scoring 55-10 against the Denver Broncos and was named the “Sports Illustrated” Sportsman of the Year.
Notre Dame played in the Cotton Bowl on January 1, 1979, and despite fighting hypothermia in the frigid temperatures, Montana helped the team score 3 touchdowns in the final minutes of the game. Notre Dame won by 1 point, and ESPN.com named the 1979 Cotton Bowl #3 on their 2002 list of the greatest bowl games. Montana graduated in 1979, earning a degree in business administration and marketing. Later that year, the San Francisco 49ers selected Joe during the third round of the NFL Draft, making him the 82nd pick.
