about $225 million when he retires at age 29. Why the hell would he want to coach football after that?

When Marcus gets an NFL OL and OC, he's going to flourish for years in the backfield.
HOLY CRAP, no. He will (hopefully) make good money but that is an insane amount. (Let's say 75 million is a dream scenario. That includes real estate, investments, etc.)

As far as the "why", because he loves football and competing, would be my guess. That doesn't mean he will or wants to, but it's not insane to think that a former player goes into coaching is it? Spurrier, Harbaugh, etc. I don't think they're just doing it for the money.

Marcus loves both football and THE UNIVERSITY OF SOUTH CAROLINA.

I can totally see him coaching at the end of his playing days and no better place to start off that career than right here where it all began.

He said it again."I will be back." I believe what he says. He will finish up his degree in short order, someday. He will return to the school one day in some way to work or help.

I came up with that amount by the way I resume he will live his life and getting a huge contract that will top any deal any RB has ever secured. Things change very quickly in pro sports and anything is possible for the right player. Let's say he becomes the best all purpose back in the history of the NFL and he's in LA or NYC. He could make $100 mill through endorsements alone in four of five years. The NFL is getting more and more popular worldwide each year and that once that pipeline is secured(London and Mexico City to start), it will be a whole new ballgame.

From Travis Haney of ESPN:
"@TravHaneyESPN: Following Lattimore presser via Twitter. We're not supposed to pull for people, theoretically, but I'll never stop pulling for Marcus."

ESPN hates us, but loves Marcus.

And when it ends, he'll be just another jock without a degree. And before anyone argues that he can get a degree after football, tell that to people who don't have a degree. They could go back too, but they don't because of family obligations, etc.

There's no reason to take this risk. If he rehabs back to his old self, the stay-in-school path gives him his degree AND BIG BUCKS when he enters the draft as #1 Heisman Trophy guy.

I agree that a case could be made for jumping at the money now, but his long-term lifestyle is at stake.

I appreciate the optimism. God knows I want all of that for Marcus. Whatever he makes he's not going to be one that blows through his money irresponsibly.

Man, I feel sort of cheated not being able to see Marcus perform at his best the 3 years he was here. Darn those injuries!!!

I think we all knew this was coming. We wouldn't have been able to keep him past this year anyway because either way he'd declare for the 2013 draft.

Marcus you will be missed, but I wish you much luck in your future and I'm looking forward to watching you play on Sunday - even if you don't play for the Atlanta Falcons. ;)

"As quickly as Lattimore burst through holes at the line, video of the injury played across the country. Tennessee players surrounded him on the field. Tweets from athletes across the sports spectrum poured in. Georgia coach Mark Richt prayed with his team for Lattimore.

There have been few such public displays of support for a player. The outpouring came for Lattimore in part because the injury appeared to be so gruesome and in part because he is so highly respected.

"I've always been a big Marcus fanI tried to get him to come to Georgia, said Richt. I'm happy that he's going to recover and am sure that he'll have a great future in the NFL. I wish him all the best.

I am old enough to have seen a few things and I can't tell you how important it is for fathers to be proud of sons. If you looked into SOS eyes during the presser you saw the kind of love and respect a father has for a son that has reached the pinacle of their relationship. I am sure Marcus father and step-father are proud of him but equally so is Coach Spurrier.

Go to Google images start typing Marcus Lattimore and it pops before you can finish but page after page of pictures.
