Early years[edit]

After attending Aldershot High School in Burlington, Ontario, Schultz played college football in the United States at the University of Arizona.

He was recruited by Arizona head coach Tony Mason as a defensive tackle, where he played his first three years, until being converted to an offensive tackle as a senior.

Professional career[edit]

Dallas Cowboys[edit]

Schultz was drafted in the seventh round (189th overall) of the 1983 NFL Draft by the Dallas Cowboys. On August 21, 1984, he was placed on the injured reserve list.[1]

After only playing in 5 games with no starts during his first two years, in 1985, Phil Pozderac injured his knee during the third game of the season, which opened the door for Schultz to start the next 3 games at left tackle, only to go back to a reserve role after Pozderac returned to health. He eventually regained the starting position from the thirteenth game until the playoffs, when he struggled mightly while playing against the Los Angeles Rams.[2] He was waived on August 26, 1986.[3]

Toronto Argonauts (CFL)[edit]

In 1986, Schultz returned to Canada to play for the CFL Toronto Argonauts, who owned his rights after drafting him in the first round of the 1982 CFL Draft. He played in 124 games for the Argos over his nine-year career with the club.[4] Schultz was named a CFL All-Star twice (1987, 1988) and was a member of the Argos' 1991 Grey Cup championship team.

In 2007, he was named to the Argos' All-time team.

Personal life[edit]

Schultz is currently a CFL football sportscaster on TSN's CFL on TSN show. Schultz also co-hosts a weekly one-hour sports radio program on TSN 1050 in Toronto called Football Sunday with Mike Hogan during the CFL and NFL seasons. He is also the NFL Insider for TSN.
