Brett Favre teases return to NFL


When Brett Favre talks about a return to the NFL, we listen. Only this time it has nothing to do with his seemingly never-ending retirement saga, although this would be way more interesting if it did.
Instead, the USM legend and Kiln native is toying around with the idea of one day going back to Green Bay as a coach or general manager.
Yesterday, he called either scenario a “dream job” before going on to tell ESPN Milwaukee ‘never say never.’
The prospect of Favre as an NFL coach isn’t that far-fetched considering he helped lead Oak Grove High School to the class 6A title in 2013 as an assistant.
He’s talking at least four years down the road anyways, after his daughter wraps up her Southern Miss volleyball career.
Favre was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame as part of the class of 2016.
