Nick Ferguson grew up in the inner city of Miami, known as the projects. Within his neighborhood and even his own family, he was aware of the negative effects of drugs and alcohol addiction from an early age. With the positive influence of two of his teachers and his mother, he went down a different path and decided to use his God given talent as an athlete to pursue professional sports. After 10 years in the NFL, he is now working to educate youth about the dangers of drugs. He is currently the host of Sports Radio 104.3 – “The Fan” in Denver.
Playing with the Denver Broncos, Ferguson started 44 games at safety, grabbing six interceptions along the way. His most notable play came in the 2006 AFC Divisional Playoffs when he came on a safety blitz and pressured Tom Brady into throwing a 100 yard interception by Champ Bailey. On March 27, 2008, he signed a one-year contract with the Houston Texans. On March 12, 2009, he re-signed a new one-year contract with the Texans.
Nick served as an assistant coach with the San Francisco 49ers in 2018, following coaching internships with the 49ers, Broncos, Seattle Seahawks and Texans.
