Mike Ditka Net Worth: Mike Ditka is a former American football player, coach and analyst who has a net worth of $30 million dollars. Born in Carnegie, Pennsylvania, in 1939, Mike Ditka played three sports in high school before beginning his college career at the University of Pittsburgh. The tight end was recruited by college football powerhouses such as Penn State and the University of Notre Dame, and is thought of as one of the best at his position in the history of the college game. He was drafted with the fifth overall pick in the 1961 NFL Draft by the Chicago Bears and the eighth overall pick in the 1961 AFL Draft by the Houston Oilers. Ditka caught 51 receptions in his rookie season with the Bears, winning Rookie of the Year, and appearing in five consecutive Pro Bowls. Ditka won the 1963 NFL Championship and three Super Bowls (VI, XII, XX). He finished his playing career with 427 receptions for 5,812 yards and 43 touchdowns, playing for the Bears, Philadelphia Eagles and Dallas Cowboys until his retirement in 1972. Ditka went on to coach for nine years with the Cowboys with eight playoff appearances. He led the Bears as head coach, winning Super Bowl XX against the New England Patriots. Ditka's 1985 defense is considered one of the best, if not the best, of all-time. Ditka won Coach of the Year twice. He later returned to coaching in the late 1990s with the New Orleans Saints, producing a 121-95 record. Ditka made headlines for several off-the-field incidents during his career, including breaking his hand while punching a locker room at halftime and throwing gum at an opposing fan during a Monday Night Football game. His number was retired by the Bears in 2013. Ditka was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 1986 and the Pro Football Hall of Fame two years later, becoming the first tight end ever chosen for Canton. He began working as an analyst for NBC and ESPN following his retirements. He co-owned AFL team, the Chicago Rush, and produced his own wine collection. Ditka tossed around the idea of running against Barack Obama in Illinois for the U.S. Senate in 2004, but ultimately opted not to campaign.
