I guess Brett Favre has to do something. No doubt he’s bored. The lawn tractor only holds so much appeal before the gas fumes and wafting aroma of freshly mown grass gets old.
So, today the news came down that Brett Favre will become an offensive coordinator – at the high school level.
No, he won’t be taking over the program for the Packers of Vikings, but hey, you’ve got to start somewhere, right?
Though nothing’s been set in stone, according to The Biloxi Sun Herald, it sounds like Brett will become the offensive coordinator at Oak Grove High School in Hattiesburg, Miss. “He is taking a job out there,” Bus Cook, Favre’s agent, told the newspaper. “He is going out there, and it will give him something to do.”
If Favre says yes, he will work with Warriors’ head coach Nevil Barr.
“Right now nothing is official,” Barr told the newspaper. “Brett is on vacation in Colorado, and we will talk on Monday. We will talk on Monday to see how involved he wants to be. We lost our offensive coordinator a few weeks ago.
“We have talked about it, and we will do more talking on Monday. It will be good for the kids. He is still very enthusiastic on the field.”
It sure sounds like the Ol’ Gunslinger will be teaching his talents to a bunch of 17-year-olds, but like I said, you’ve got to start somewhere.
At least Brett will have other things to think about than dreaming about the day the Packers retire his number – something he said he really didn’t care about anyway.
