Aikman to Graduate 20 Years Later

By  | 

Troy Aikman's passing days didn't end when he retired from the Dallas Cowboys.

The Hall of Fame quarterback says he's passed his two final
college courses and will graduate in June from UCLA - 20 years
after he left for the NFL.

The Dallas Morning News reported Tuesday that Aikman is getting
a bachelor's degree in sociology and will participate in UCLA's
graduation ceremonies.

The 42-year-old Fox Sports broadcaster says he's "finally
taking care of unfinished business."

Aikman says he promised his mother, when he left school just two
courses shy of a degree, that he would return and finish.

Aikman's final two courses included a class on race and
ethnicity, and another on aging.

He earned an "A" for both.
