Favre Coaching at Mississippi High School

HATTIESBURG, Miss. (AP) -- Brett Favre made his living as one of the greatest quarterbacks in NFL history.
Now he serves as an assistant coach. Or receiver. Or film editor. Or anything else he thinks needs to be done to make Oak Grove High School a better football team.
Favre is beginning his coaching career in humble surroundings -- as the offensive coordinator of a 1,500-student high school near his home in southern Mississippi.
The three-time MVP has kept a low profile since retiring from the NFL in 2010. It's been a stark contrast from his final years in the league when there was constant drama on and off the field. After a couple years to decompress, he's emerged at Oak Grove, where he can stay near home and still get his football fix.
