Former NFL QB Michael Vick, who played for the Falcons and Eagles, among other stops, doesn’t want to step completely away from the NFL, even if he’s not playing on Sundays. Vick was on the Howard Eskin Podcast, and, per Matt Lombardo of NJ Advance Media, he said:
“I think spending so many years in that same regiment being a player, I could see myself doing it on the other side and being a coach, and being a good one at that. That would be my focus, that would be my primary goal — to be the best coach that I could be, just like I tried to be the best player that I could be. And excitement is working with the kids.”
Vick certainly was tremendous when he was healthy and playing his best football, a guy with a big arm who was also one of the fastest and most elusive runners in the NFL. That being said, much of what he did well just came from being an incredible athlete, which you can’t teach. But he still has years of experience as an NFL QB and has played very well at times, and he believes he could help bring along the next generation of quarterbacks.
He also said he’s talked with current Chiefs head coach Andy Reid. When Vick was with the Eagles, Reid was his head coach. Vick said:
“Yeah well he just wanted to get my thoughts, but we haven’t talked about it since. But if I could coach with anybody, I would love to start out with Andy if there was an opportunity. Obviously, I would love it with the Falcons as well. So we’ll see how it goes.”
