The agent for Brett Favre, Bus Cook, mentioned to the Associated Press that the Ol’ Gunslinger will be with Oak Grove High School near Hattiesburg, Mississippi “to help out in some capacity, but I’m not sure exactly what his role will be”.
This role is likely to be offensive coordinator, a Biloxi (Miss.) Sun-Herald article says.
Favre was candid in his recent interview with NFL Network’s Deion Sanders, admitting money was his “first and foremost” reason for coming back to the Minnesota Vikings in 2010. I was fascinated when he spoke of how he would prepare and dissect defenses like Tom Brady and Peyton Manning do.
Minnesota could have as many as four new WR’s who weren’t on the roster to start 2011 – likely Simpson, Childs, Wright and Burton – and have a rebuilt offensive line and a new tight end. This new offense bares little resemblance to the one that included Sidney Rice (now a Seahawk), Bernard Berrian (out of work), Visanthe Shiancoe (out of work; may end up in New England’s training camp), Jim Kleinsasser (retired) and Greg Lewis (out of work) when Favre was there in 2010.
