So what would you do after you retired from professional football? Take a long vacation, become a couch potato at home or get right back to work?
Well the latter is exactly what former Cowboys back-up quaterback Jon Kitna is doing. He has reportedly returned to his alma mater to start a part-time teaching job. But he may not stop there. The school also has an opening for a new head football coach.
The Tacoma News Tribune is reports that Wednesday is the day when the coaching position closes and Lincoln High School athletic director Char Davenport has confirmed Kitna has applied for the job.
She also told the Tribune she isn't aware of any other applicants, but anyone who may be in-house and interested in the job will be given priority.
"I know he wants to coach," she said per the Tribune, "and he’ll probably be someone to reckon with if there are other applicants."
Kitna retired from football earlier this month after spending the last two season with the Dallas Cowboys.
