Matt Kunz has lived in the Milton area since 2002 after his marriage to wife RaDonna, who had lived in the area off Deerfield Parkway since 1997. Since that time, they moved into the Sable Pointe subdivision where Kunz now frequently walks their dogs Buster, Rockne, Gipper, and Archer.
Kunz became immediately active in the community as a defensive coordinator for the Division I Alpharetta Eagles football team at North Park. He coached at North Park for six years before becoming a Georgia Certified Community Coach at Chattahoochee High School, where he coached a freshman team that would later go undefeated and win the AAAA state championship as seniors. Kunz also offered private football lessons to athletes in the area through a part-time business he founded in 2006. In 2015 he published a book about his experiences called "Triumph! An Athlete’s Guide to Winning On and Off the Field."
Kunz and his wife have been parishioners at the Cathedral of Christ the King in Buckhead since 2000. Both he and RaDonna serve as Eucharistic ministers at the Saturday evening Vigil, and sometimes Kunz is asked to read as a lector. He also helped found the Career and Professional Development Ministry, offering encouragement and venues for those in career transition.
Kunz serves in the Roswell Rotary and as the president of the Friends of the Milton Library, a service organization dedicated to helping the Library Director design programs for community involvement at the new Milton Library. He is also president of George Kunz for the NFL Hall of Fame, a membership of sports fans dedicated to getting his father, George Kunz, into the NFL Hall of Fame.
Kunz's business career varied early before he became a financial advisor. He currently manages portfolios for his clients based on client suitability and his viewpoint of supply-and-demand economics. Kunz frequently recommends clients read "Basic Economics" by Thomas Sowell, because the author believes heavily in free market capitalism and searching for the unintended consequences that may arise from policy decisions. Kunz is also an avid reader of history, economics, leadership and current events.
Kunz earned a bachelor of arts degree in American studies from the University of Notre Dame. He was also a letter winner as a walk-on football player. Kunz played linebacker on defense for head coaches Lou Holtz and Bob Davie.
Prior to college, Kunz spent most of his childhood in Las Vegas, where he captained two varsity sports at Bishop Gorman High School, earned the rank of Eagle Scout, and rode horses in his spare time. He is the son of former Atlanta Falcon George Kunz and Gainesville native Mary Sue Kunz.
