A lot of people will have forgotten Bill Jackman was a Blue Devil.

He came with the class of ‘86 but left after his freshman year, transferring back home to Nebraska.

His coach there told him that he had no real future in basketball (ouch) so he should start thinking about what he wanted to do with his life.

He ended up playing some internationally and found his way into the business world.

Jackman seems like an interesting guy who’s lived a nice life to date. He’s in Austin, Texas now and doing quite well.
