It’s no joke that comedian Joel McHale is a former football student-athlete for the University of Washington. McHale was a tight end for the Huskies and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in history and a master’s in fine arts from Washington. He broke into the world of comedy shortly afterward with roles in “Will and Grace” and “Spiderman 2.” He is now the host of “The Soup” on E! and stars in the sitcom “Community.”

What people are saying

“Hiring former student athletes has always been a decision we have not regretted at our firm.  Playing college athletics teaches them valuable skills that immediately transfer over to the workplace like time management, accountability, goal setting, and the ability to work with others.  These skills make former student-athletes ready to impact my firm’s bottom line quicker and in a bigger way than most other college graduates.”

– Jason R. Andrews, Equity Financial
