The 56-year-old mirrored on his post-NFL profession up to now and got here to the conclusion that changing into a normal supervisor at this level in his life simply wasn’t within the playing cards for him.
“There’s nonetheless part of me, I feel, that down the street — the speak has at all times come up about whether or not or not I need to be a normal supervisor. And I feel that has handed. However there could come a time that I’d be eager about simply serving to out with a membership, with a corporation, and never essentially in an official capability.”
