Will Steve Young Go Into Politics?

PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA -- News that retired San Francisco 49ers quarterback Steve Young will give the invocation Wednesday night at the Republican National Convention has observers wondering if Young may be considering a career in politics. Speculation over exactly how Young will spend his time has continued since Young officially retired earlier this summer, with observers wondering if each move Young makes will indicate what his plans are.

If he does consider politics, Young might be well placed for a run for office, says California state Senate Minority Leader Jim Brulte, a Republican representing Rancho Cucamonga, "I think Steve Young would be a great candidate in California for whatever office he would like to run for," Brulte says. Since Young has both a law degree and notoriety because of his stellar football career, pundits have mentioned his name as a possible Republican candidate for Congress in either California or Utah.

However, Young was not available for comment on the issue. Previous speculation on Young's plans has focused on his participation in a venture capital firm in Utah and in his various business ventures and charitable programs, as well as the commentator position on Monday Night Football recently given to comedian Dennis Miller.
