Tom Osborne spent his childhood in his hometown, where he attended Hastings High School, where he impressed as a basketball and football player. In 1955, he was honored with the Nebraska High School Athlete of The Year award, and in the same year he enrolled in Hastings College, where he continued to play both sports. As a senior, he won the Nebraska College Athlete of the Year award, and graduating with a BA degree in History in 1959. He also earned his MA as well as PhD in Educational Psychology from Nebraska.
Subsequently, Tom’s professional career as a football player started when he was selected in the 1959 NFL draft as the 222nd overall pick in the 19th round by the San Francisco 49ers, so he signed a rookie contract, but never actually played for the team, as he was released. Soon after, he joined the Washington Redskins, where he played in the position of wide receiver for two seasons, after which he finished his professional playing career, and started to prepare for his career as a coach. Regardless, his net worth was now well established.
Thus, his professional coaching career began in 1964, when he was hired as an assistant coach to head coach Bob Devaney of Nebraska’s football team – the Cornhuskers; surprisingly, Tom didn’t ask to be paid for that job, and his only request was to be present for lunch with the training crew. In 1969, Bob named Tom as the main offensive coordinator, and since then his career has only gone upwards, as well as his net worth. In that position, he achieved remarkable results with the team, leading them to win the national title in 1970, and again in the following year, as they defeated Alabama, Colorado and Oklahoma in the finals.
After the 1972 season, Bob pulled back from the position of head coach and became an athletic director, so he named Tom as the new head coach, and Tom remained in that position for the next 25 years. Parallel with that, he also served as an offensive coordinator, which added a considerable amount to his net worth. Under his guidance, the team set impressive records in American Football history. They won three national championships in 1994, 1995 and 1997, 12 Big Eight Conference titles, as well as one Big 12 Conference title. They set the win-loss record of 255–49–3, including 60-3 in his final five seasons, which earned him the best winning percentage (83.6%) among active coaches in the NCAA Division I-A.
Furthermore, between 1979 and 1998, Tom also served as the athletic director, along with Bob Devaney, which also contributed to his net worth. He also led the team to win 250 games during his five final seasons, and finished his coaching career setting a bowl record of 12–13. At the time of his retirement, Tom was named as the fifth-best coach of all time.
Thanks to his accomplishments in the sports industry, Tom won numerous recognitions and awards, such as the 1978 Bobby Dodd Coach of the Year, ESPN Coach of the Decade in 1999 for the 1990s, and the Jim Thorpe Lifetime Achievement Award in 2000. Furthermore, he was also inducted into the Nebraska High School Sports Hall of Fame in 1994, as well as the the College Football Hall of Fame in 1999.
Apart from his involvement in the sports industry, Tom is also known as a politician, who was a member of the US House of Representatives for Nebraska, from 2001 to 2007, which also increased his net worth, and who ran for Governor of Nebraska, losing with 45% of votes.
