To begin with, Philip’s father coached the football team of Decatur High, and where his mother worked as a teacher. Rivers was educated at Athens High School where he played in the football team of the above mentioned school. After high school, Rivers went to North Carolina State University where he played under the guidance of the coach Chuck Amato. During his college career, Rivers broke almost all quaterback records, starting all 51 games during the four years of his career, with the team going to four consecutive bowl games under the command of Rivers, winning three of them. Rivers was named Player of the Year in 2004 and was also elected the MVP in all four bowls.
During the 2004 NFL Draft, Rivers was expected to be selected early in the 1st round, but despite his success in college football rumours about his health were flying around the NFL. Rivers was one of four quarterbacks selected in the first round of the Draft, with Ben Roethlisberger, Eli Manning and JP Losman. In August 2004, Philip Rivers signed a contract for the period of six years, which was worth $ 40.5 million with the San Diego Chargers. It is worth mentioning the fact that the player received a signing-on bonus of $14.5 million, that immediately increased the net worth of Philip Rivers. In his first season after lengthy negotiations Rivers came late to the team and was therefore rarely used. In addition, starting quarterback Drew Brees played the best season of his career, so Rivers had little chance to outrun him. Also in 2005, Rivers had to be content with the role as a backup, but Brees’ contract was not renewed after the season, instead signing a lucrative contract with the New Orleans Saints, and thus Rivers became the starting quarterback. In 2007, Rivers with the Chargers reached the play-offs, and came to the final of the American Football Conference (AFC) in front, where they lost to the New England Patriots. Rivers played despite a knee injury and had to undergo an operation soon after the match. In 2008, Rivers’ season was excellent: with a pass rating of 105.5 and 34 touchdowns, he led the NFL in these categories. In 2009, the Chargers have won all their last eleven games and closed the season with a 13-3 record. Rivers was at the top again with an excellent rating of 104.4. The player has continued his excellent career in the same team up to date, and been selected five times for the Pro-Bowl as well as setting many club records. In August 2015 Philip signed an $84 million contract for the upcoming four years. Consequently, the net worth of the player is increasing very significantly.
Finally, in the personal life of the football player, he is married to Tiffany since 2001 – Philip has fathered eight children with his wife, so far.
