After a successful 10 year career as a professional athlete, he moved into private business and continued his success while simultaneously involving himself with sports and helping young athletes. He founded Joe Cribbs and Associates in the late 1990’s to work with young professional athletes and prepare them for life and a career after their sports career comes to an end. Joe has been an advocate for bringing about change in many ways regarding how professional athletes plan their future.
