Nnamdi Asomugha was born in Lafayette, Louisiana, but grew up in Los Angeles, California. He played baseball and football throughout high school and chose to attend the University of California, Berkeley, where he continued to play football. He graduated from UC Berkeley with a degree in Corporate Finance and was drafted by the Oakland Raiders in 2003 to play professional football.
Nnamdi Asomugha went relatively unused during his first two seasons with the Raiders, but he broke out in 2005.

He was an All-Pro selection four times while with the team and a Pro Bowl selection three times. He was Oakland Raiders MVP in 2006 and 2008. Unfortunately, after leaving Oakland, his career started to go downhill. He signed a five-year contract with the Philadelphia Eagles in 2011 and was a Pro Bowl alternate in 2012 but was released when the two sides couldn't come to an agreement on a contract restructure. In 2013, Asomugha signed a one-year deal with the San Francisco 49ers but was waived by the team later that year. He then retired from the NFL as an Oakland Raider in late December of 2013 after 11 years of playing time. In 2016, Pro Football Focus named Nnamdi Asomugha the best Oakland Raiders player of the past decade.
