Coby Karl was born as Coby Joseph Karl and is a professional basketball player. He was born on the 8th of June, 1983 and is currently 32 years of age. He was born in Great Falls, Montana, United States of America to former basketball player turned coach father George Carl and his wife Cathy Cramer Carl. He has two younger siblings, and the kids all grew up together in Wisconsin. Born and raised as a Christian, he is an American by nationality and belongs to a white ethnicity.
Karl studied at the local Homestead High School in Mequon and was not a very sharp kid. But, there was something that attracted him more than the books, or classes. It was basketball. He really liked playing and was exceptionally good at basketball, for a kid his age.From a very young age, he practiced the game with his father and learned the basics very well. Thus, it was easier for him to adapt to what his coach at school told him and was always a step ahead of other guys. He was an All-Suburban selection as a child and was soon playing in the first team. In his senior year, he went through All-State Honorable Mention before graduating high school in 2002.
Upon graduating high school, Coby got a chance to study and play for the Boise State University, where he ws admitted to and received a sports scholarship for in 2003. He chose to study mass communications, but was mostly found in the basketball court and gym hall. During his four years in Boise, he held a record of about 17 points per game, while his assist rate was 4 per game. Although he was not in the first team in his sophomore year, he was still the most dangerous player in the squad and was awarded with the All-WAC Second Team in the 2005/ 06 season. Then, he was quickly moved to the first team where his record was phenomenal with 15 points per game, followed by 4 assists/ game and equal rebounds too. After this, he started getting offers from big NBA teams. He gave a trail for 2006 NBA Draft, but he returned to college and finished his studies first, saying that basketball could wait for one more year.
He started his professional career from 2007, when he joined the Los Angeles Lakers for just a year. Throughout his career, he played most of his games in the D- league with clubs like Los Angeles D-Fenders (2007/08), Idaho Stampede (2008/10), Reno Bighorns (2015-still). Besides these clubs, he also has had an international career during which he played in some European clubs like DKV Joventut (2009), Granada (2010/11), Armani Jeans Milano (2011), Fabi Shoes Montegranaro (2011/12), Pallacanestro Reggiana (2013) and also in Germany with MHP Riesen Ludwigsburg (2013/ 15). This year, 2015, is a busy year for him. He is only the second person to play an NBA game and a D-league game in the same day.
Looking into his relationship status, he does seem to have a girlfriend. However, he is very private and does not like to speak about his personal life. Because of this, there is no any additional information available regrading who he is dating and what his relationship status is. It does not seem like he is married or has any children, though he may do so in the future.
Coby Karl's salary is around $79433 for the year 2015, which is surely boosting his already high net worth. He is 6' 5" tall and his weight is approximately 98 kg, i.e. 216 lbs.
