The New York Giants won’t be welcoming Tiki Barber back. But one of Barber’s former Giants coaches would love to coach him again.
Jim Fassel, who coached Barber during his first six years in the NFL, is now coach of Las Vegas Locomotives of the United Football League. And Fassel says he thinks the UFL would be a good place for Barber.
“He says he wants to play in the NFL,” Fassel told the New York Daily News. “If he wants to come play in our league, I would be happy to have him.”
It’s probably safe to say that’s not going to happen: Barber is presumably trying to return to football because he wants an NFL paycheck, not a UFL paycheck: UFL players make about $50,000 a year.
