Since being waived by the Cleveland Browns in March 2016, no team has shown interest in troubled quarterback Johnny Manziel. He’s held onto hope that he could make a return… but may be realizing it might never happen.
The 24-year-old recently hinted at giving up on his NFL dreams, as he revealed that he’s interested in coaching.
While attending the International Football Betting Conference in Costa Rica recently, Manziel was asked if he’s given any thought to what he’d do if no NFL team gives him a shot. “I’d do something involved with sports. I can’t get away from it,” he said. “I’ve had to ask myself that a little bit as of late over the past year, but at the same time I’d want to be involved in sports in some way, whether it’s coaching, whether it’s doing something like that. So I think that’d be my route.”
When asked which level he’d like to coach at, Manziel said: “Probably college.”
Manziel actually coached back in February at an Elite 11 quarterback camp.
He even said the Canadian Football League “is definitely something I’ve looked into.”
While Manziel is considering coaching as life after his short stint in the NFL, he’s still hoping he gets another shot. To date, he remains unsigned.
