Published April 12, 1995
As reported in yesterday's L.A TIMES, Chiefs QB JOE MONTANA is expected to make his retirement official at a news conference in San Francisco on Tuesday. "Although no deals are final, Montana's future appears to include a continuing connection with the NFL." Montana has reportedly been in negotiations with NBC Sports President DICK EBERSOL about becoming part of the NBC's NFL broadcast crew. He is also said to have talked with the league about becoming a spokesperson for the NFL. Sponsorship deals, "including an affiliation with an Indy-car racing team," are also possible (Kent Pulliam, KANSAS CITY STAR, 4/12).
