Legendary NFL QB Brett Favre Joins High School Football Coaching Staff

Legendary NFL QB Brett Favre

From The Associated Press

BILOXI, Miss. —Brett Favre is returning to football – as an assistant high school coach in Mississippi.

His agent, Bus Cook, told The Associated Press 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 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.

The three-time league MVP retired from the NFL in 2010.

Favre, who grew up in nearby Kiln, Miss., has kept a low profile in Hattiesburg since he retired. He rarely does interviews, though he is occasionally seen at Southern Mississippi’s football or baseball games. Favre played in college at Southern Miss, where he also made his debut as a television analyst.
