Saleh has come a long way over the years, but not without difficulty and sacrifices. After high school, he was awarded a scholarship to attend Northern Michigan University where he graduated with a degree in finance with a minor in psychology. He also holds a master’s degree from Michigan State University (MSU).
Those jobs didn’t earn him nearly enough to support himself and his family, and he experienced financial hardship. During his first job as a college football coach at MSU, he earned only $600 a month.
