Former Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel interested in coaching college football
It’s only been a few years since Johnny Manziel was on a college football sideline, but he could be back sooner rather than later — this time, as a coach.
Manziel said at the International Football Betting Conference in Puerto Rico that he would consider coaching college football if his playing career is indeed over. He hasn’t played since the Cleveland Browns released him following the 2015 season.
“I’d do something involved with sports. I can’t get away from it,” Manziel 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.”
The former Heisman Trophy winner also said he’s weighing his options with the Canadian Football League.
In two seasons with the Browns, Manziel posted a 57.8 percent completion percentage to go with 7 touchdowns and 7 interceptions. He started eight games over those seasons, going 2-6. He played in seven other games for the Browns.
