Brett Favre speaks at Gulf Coast Coaching Clinic

The second day of the Gulf Coast Coaching Clinic took place today. A familiar face stopped by to speak to coaches about the game of football.
Football coaches from Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama are at the Gulf Coast Coaching Clinic in Biloxi. Southeast Lauderdale Quarterback Coach Andrew Black tells News 25 he has learned a lot from coaches at the clinic. “Many of them have had great careers in coaching. Just to get nuggets of wisdom from them has been really beneficial for me.”
Mississippi’s own Brett Favre attended the event. Coaches enjoyed what he had to say about the game of football. Southeast Lauderdale Defensive Line Coach C.J. Jenkins said, “Just listening to him talk about his personal life and when he was growing up, how he grew up, and how he is now as a parent.”
Favre spoke about a variety of topics. First he talked about winning a state championship as the offensive coordinator at Oak Grove High School. “It’s close to winning a Super Bowl, but different. I had a part in it, but I didn’t if that makes sense.”
Favre cracked jokes comparing playing football down south and playing in freezing temperatures in Green Bay. “We play them outside in November. That’s not good at all. Hey, we want to win them all guys.”
Of course, someone in the audience commented about the 2009 NFC championship game against the Saints and the bounty scandal. His response? “The only thing that bothers me is that there wasn’t more money changing hands to see who could get Favre out because I wasn’t easy to get out.”
