Abilities keep older managers, coaches in game

Experts on aging say 80- and 90-year-olds will be doing things that were thought impossible to do at that age a generation ago. “That’s the future you’re going to see with the aging of the baby boomers,” said Paul Hodge, director of Harvard’s Generations Policy Program. Hodge thinks that in 20 years, retirement as we know it will be obsolete because people in their 70s and 80s will have the ability and economic need to work. And the elderly are especially likely to hang on to high-paying, sought-after jobs, such as those in sports”.
