In a move that makes last year’s excellent parody video seem prescient, former NFL quarterback Brett Favre has become a high school football coach.
Favre’s agent, Bus Cook, told the Associated Press on Friday that Favre will work as an assistant at Oak Grove High School in Hattiesburg, Mississippi. Cook said Favre plans “to help out in some capacity, but I’m not sure exactly what his role will be.”
Oak Grove served as the location for workouts by Favre as he prepared for his multiple unretirements from 2008 through 2010. He played for the Falcons, Packers, Jets, and Vikings in a career that spanned 20 seasons.
Last year, Favre worked once as an TV analyst for a football game involving Southern Mississippi, his alma mater.
