The Pro Football Hall of Fame induction of Brett Favre might now be the last we see of him.
On February 6, 2016, the world watched as Favre was inducted and now he’s saying that don’t count him out of the NFL… if he returns, it will be as a coach or a general manager.
During a Thursday appearance on ESPN Wisconsin’s Wilde & Tausch, Favre admitted that he had considered coaching or “leading a front office” of an NFL team.
“That type of stuff has crossed my mind,” Favre said via ESPN.com’s Jason Wilde show. “Because it’s no different to me than coaching. It’s being involved in the game in some aspect.”
Favre is familiar with coaching since he’s coached for two year for Oak Grove High School in Mississippi, from 2012-13.
“I always thought I would be a good coach, but I didn’t know if I had the effort in me.” he said. “Well, I did. I’ll tell you what: It was a joy. The competitive spirit came right back. It was obviously different than playing, and so I had a lot of fun.”
He did say regarding NFL coaching/GM, “I believe that would be a dream job, working as a coach there or in some form of administration. I don’t know, and I don’t want to create a stir [b talking about it], because who knows? But I would say, ‘Never say never.’ “
