To begin with, Sean Tuohy attended the prestigious Isidore Newman School in New Orleans – one of the school gymnasia is named after Sean’s father, Edward Tuohy, who was a long respected coach in the institution. After his father suffered a stroke and died, Sean finished his studies in the school, and was tempted to play baseball with the team of the Cincinatti Reds, but rejected the offer, and attended college on a scholarship to play basketball, a sport he had always practiced, at the University of Mississippi  in the position of point guard. Sean broke several records in the league, and won numerous awards for his play, and Sean Tuohy has now been inducted into the Ole Miss Sports Hall of Fame, and is still known for holding the leading assist player in the Southeastern Conference.

However, Sean didn’t proceed with a basketball career, but got into the food business almost immediately, and now the family has built-up a portfolio of almost 100 fast food franchises, which include Pizza Hut, Taco Bell, Kentucky Fried Chicken and Long John Silver’s, all of which add significant sums to the size of Sean Touhy’s net worth.

Notwithstanding, Sean Tuohy maintained his interest in basketball, and since 2001 has worked as a commentator for the Memphis Grizzlies games. He also has several years of experience as an analyst and radio commentator on sports issues on Westwood One and CBS Radio, which contribute to his net worth.

Sean and his wife Leigh Anne are also the co-authors of the book entitled “In a Heartbeat: Sharing the Power of Cheerful Giving”, which has no doubt added to their wealth since its release in 2010.

Moreover, Sean Tuohy and his family are the subjects of the novel by Michael Lewis “The Blind Side: The Evolution of a Game” (2006). In addition, they were portrayed in the film entitled “The Blind Side” (2009) directed by John Lee Hancock, starring Tim McGraw in the role of Sean and Sandra Bullock in the role of wife Leigh Anne. The film received an Oscar nomination for Best Picture and won the Academy Award in the category of Best Actress for Sandra Bullock.

Finally, in his personal life, Sean met his future wife Leigh Anne Tuohy while studying at college, and they married in 1982; currently their family resides in Memphis, Tennessee. They have a son and daughter, plus an adopted son, Michael Oher, who is a well known American Football player – with the Baltimore Ravens, and a winner of Super Bowl XLVII.
