Todd Marinovich is the son of Trudi Marinovich, who was a high school swimmer, and Marv Marinovich, who was the NFL’s first strength-and-conditioning coach, as well as a captain of the USC Trojans in their 1962 national championship season. He spent his childhood in Newport Beach, California; his mother changed his named from Marvin Scott to Todd Marvin. As his father was a coach, Todd began to train in football as a child. Thus, when he attended Mater Dei High School, he distinguished himself as a football player, having 4,400 rushing yards and 34 touchdowns during two seasons at this high school. Afterwards, he was forced to transfer to Mission Viejo’s Capistrano Valley High School as his parents divorced, and there he was also a great player, breaking the national high school record with 9,914 rushing yards. Thanks to that, he was named a Parade All-American, and he won the Dial Award in 1987, among other honors.

Upon matriculation, he enrolled at the University of Southern California (USC), where he majored in Fine Arts. There he played football for the Trojans, and in the 1988 season he was redshirted. Although before the next season he injured his leg, Todd became the first freshman quarterback to start the first game of the season for the team. In the game against Washington State, he was spotted by former President Ronald Reagan. Later, in the 1990 season, he was named the College Freshman of the Year, as he led the team to win against Michigan in the Rose Bowl. In the same season he was a candidate for the Heisman Trophy, after which he had personal problems, which had a huge influence on his playing.

Even though he was arrested for cocaine possession, Todd entered the NFL Draft, and his professional playing career began in 1991, when he was selected in the first round as the 24th overall pick by the Los Angeles Raiders, immediately increasing his net worth by a large degree. He made his NFL debut appearance on “Monday Night Football” in the game against the Dallas Cowboys, having 16 rushing yards and a touchdown. In the next season, he was switched to the position of starter, however, he played very poorly and soon his career in the NFL ended.

During his entire NFL career, he was drug addicted, was arrested once, and obliged by the NFL to take frequent drug tests. When his NFL career ended, he tried to join the Canadian Football League, but he was also arrested for the same reason, spending three months in jail. This had a negative influence on his net worth.

To speak further about his professional playing career, Todd also played for the CFL team – the BC Lions in 1999, but his use of drugs increased, so he left the team. Later, in 2000, he became a player at the Arena Football League (AFL)’s team – the Los Angeles Avengers, in which his first season was great, so he was named to the All-Rookie team. Unfortunately, he was arrested again, and in 2001 Todd was suspended from the team.

After his suspension, Todd launched his own online art gallery. Besides that, he also worked as a painter, and private quarterback coach, increasing his net worth just a bit.

Regarding his personal life, Todd Marinovich is married to Alexandria, with whom he has two children; their current residence is in Orange County. Speaking further about his life, ESPN released a film about him, which is entitled “The Marinovich Project” (2011).
