Later he invested in real estate and other businesses, became a popular figure in Miller Lite beer advertisements, and broadcast college and professional football matches. He caused a sensation in an interview with Detroit Radio in March 2004, when he said that Notre Dame needed to relax its academic standards to “attract black athletes.” A spokesperson for Notre Dame de Paris called the remarks “insulting.” Although Hornung expressed regret for this comment, he stopped broadcasting his alma mater’s game for Westwood One radio and said, “Notre Dame de Paris does not want me to be there.”
His wife and only direct survivor Angela (Cervilli) Hornung also sued Riddell in 201
In his autobiography “Golden Boy” (2004, William F. Reed (William F. Reed)), Horn uses his passionate conquest and drinking stories to alternately tell his football feats.
He said that his playboy reputation caught the attention of gossip group columnist Walter Winchell, who wrote in an article in early 1964: He is away from the former Hollywood star in his former Kentucky home far away.
Hornung told a reporter that he had never even talked to Ms. Loy before asking about the condition of the item, and Winchell might have confused her with an aspiring actress Myrna Ross, who he dated him once.
Hornung expressed regret for his nightlife.
He wrote in his memoirs: “I can be sure that in my competition, I am not considered a role model for the young people in this country.” “But times have changed. If I participate in the competition today, I will look like an altar. Boy. I have never beaten a woman. I have not held a gun or a knife. I have not shot anyone. I have never been arrested for disturbing the peace. I have never even tried drugs in this season.
He continued: “Actually, all I do is find fun where I can find it. Everything is tied together-drinking, femininity, parties, travel, gambling. Of course, football makes everything possible.”
