This is a classic example of a guy who simple cannot get enough of the game he loves. Brett Favre has “$2 more than God”, as the saying goes, so he’s certainly not hurting for money. It’s both admirable and sad at the same time that he would coach High School football.
Brett Favre is returning to football — as an assistant high school coach in Mississippi.
His agent, Bus Cook, told the Associated Press on Friday that Favre will work at Oak Grove High School this fall “to help out in some capacity, but I’m not sure exactly what his role will be.”
The school is near the former NFL quarterback’s home in Hattiesburg, Miss.
The Biloxi (Miss.) Sun-Herald reported that Favre, 42, is expected to be the offensive coordinator. Oak Grove head coach Nevil Barr told the AP he has talked about a possible role for Favre on the coaching staff, though a job title hasn’t been defined. Favre has helped at Oak Grove in an unofficial capacity in previous years.
