Sometimes it’s best to learn from other people’s mistakes. We don’t recommend following in Eric Johnson’s footsteps and quitting school. Jessica Simpson’s current beau and former NFL player is dropping out of business school. Johnson had plans to attend the Wharton Business School’s MBA program, but decided against it, reports People.
Rumors have circulated Johnson chose not to move to the Pennsylvania university in order to spend more time, but those close to the couple have denied the claims. “There were a lot of factors that went into his decision,” said a friend. “Jessica supports him in whatever he wants to do. He has a lot going on.” These factors have not been disclosed.
It appears that Johnson has no problem getting into prestigious schools, should he wish to re-enroll. He attended Yale University, where he played wide receiver, before being drafted to play for the San Francisco 49ers.
