Keyshawn Johnson to coach at a high school

Former NFL wide receiver Keyshawn Johnson’s quest to mold America’s youth continues.

Not content to simply teach driver’s ed to Justin Bieber, Johnson’s now becoming a football coach.

According to the Tampa Tribune, Johnson’s going to be an assistant coach at Mission Viejo High in California.

He’s apparently going to work with the team on Tuesdays and Wednesdays before heading east for his weekend work on ESPN, and is expected to make about half the team’s games. One of his sons is an incoming freshman at the school.

Johnson’s NFL experience will be valuable to the players, and former NFL quarterback Rob Johnson is also on staff.

That means the receivers can hold their hands up and say Just Give Me the Damn Ball, when the quarterback inevitably misses his target.

    Lesson one: teaching receivers how to say, “Give me the damn ball!”

    Too bad it’s not a full-time gig that would keep him off ESPN.

    It will be interesting to find out how much Keyshawn is being paid — more interesting if you can find out how much the head coach is paid (compared to a teacher’s salary).

    The reason I bring this up is that … let’s just say they take sports very seriously in Mission Veijo.

    This school has Keyshawn Johnson AND Rob Johnson teaching them football???? We had Otto Fremeier who was the local garbage man as our coach, and he didn’t teach us nothin’.

    What a bunch of spoiled brats these Mission Veijo kids are …

    It could be worse. Mark Sanchez went to school there and thats where he hosts his “Jets west” training. At least he isn’t giving the kids tips on “Butt fumbling”

    Wow, that’s one heck of a commute from Calabasas to Mission Viejo (~70 miles), and in LA traffic.

    Ahh yes… Mission Viejo High.

    Mark Sanchez’s old stomping grounds… and by stomping I mean butt fumbling.

    With the way Keyshawn handled that Bieber kid, got to wonder if he will be a good fit for H.S. kids. I’m thinking not.
