Not many people would chuck a shot at an NFL career, but that’s what Baylor quarterback Nick Florence is doing—so he can finish his MBA.

Florence, who graduated from Baylor with an undergraduate degree in economics in 2011, is now enrolled in the MBA program at Baylor’s Hankamer School of Business, where he expects to graduate in December, according to the Baylor Bears website. He told the Waco Tribune that a football career is not what he wanted out of life.
