On Friday, Colts QB Philip Rivers announced that he will become the coach of the St. Michaels Catholic High School football team in Fairhope, Alabama once his playing career is over.
“It’s a special day for me and my family really,” Rivers said, via AL.com. “I will probably get a little emotional. I had two childhood dreams. One was to play in the NFL, and I’m now going into my 17th season. The other was to be a high school football coach as my dad was. How blessed am I to be able to live both of those out.”
