Jump To Reggie Bush's Stats
Reggie Bush runs his life like he runs the football. With his speed, tenacity, quick moves and scores, he successfully made his way through high school, college and now enjoys the fruits of the professional ranks as a running back for the Miami Dolphins. As he has been a triple threat catching, running and playing decoy for his teams, his bank accounts have gained some yardage – now with a net worth of $40,303,000.
Controversy hasn't been too far behind Bush. Although his college days reflect grand accomplishments with his athletic feats, he ultimately gave back the 2005 Heisman Trophy amidst a brewing scandal at his University of Southern California. Although it took a three years for the investigation to unfold, Reggie and his family had been receiving inappropriate gifts while he was in college – a violation of NCAA rules. It cost the University severe penalties and it cost Reggie some embarrassment, but he was now a pro.
Bush was chosen as the No. 2 NFL draft pick in 2006. A miscue by the Houston Texans startled the league as they chose Mario Williams first. The lucky New Orleans Saints snapped him up immediately to buttress their backfield with Deuce McAllister. Somewhere in the middle of all this pro-football, Reggie took up with Kim Kardashian. The two-year relationship fizzled with time and with no ring.
By 2010, Bush showed the Saints that they made the right choice. As he became more familiar with their offense, he became more elusive to opposing defenses. The Saints went on to win the Super Bowl in 2010. Bush joined the Miami Dolphins during the 2011 season.
Bush never enjoyed a strong relationship with his biological father, Reggie Sr. His father had a reputation for being an excellent athlete himself, going by the nickname in high school as the Dancing Man for his quick feet. But when his mother and Reggie Sr. discovered her pregnancy, he bowed out because he didn't think he could handle the responsibilities of being a parent so young. To this day, the relationship between Junior and Senior is estranged.
