Michael Vick ‘Would Love to Coach’ In the NFL

Michael Vick was once nearly run out of the league. Now, the former quarterback may never leave the game.


Vick, who played quarterback for 15 seasons and retired this year, has hinted at staying close to the game. Now, he’s disclosed just how he plans on doing so.

“I would love to coach in the National Football League one day,” Vick said to ESPN’s Adam Schefter on his “Know Them From Adam” podcast. ” … At some point, I’d definitely love to help work with young quarterbacks and develop them and still compete, you know, with the team and with the coaches.”

Vick was once a NFL superstar. A dual threat as a runner and passer, he led the Atlanta Falcons for six seasons before he was jailed for his role in a dog-fighting ring. He served nearly two years in jail before returning to the league in 2009 and playing for the Philadelphia Eagles, New York Jets, and Pittsburgh Steelers, with his career ending in 2015.

Vick has been in the news recently, with reported ties to a flag football league and after he expressed a desire to sign a one-day contract to officially retire with the Falcons. The competitive fire still burns in the now-36-year-old.

“It’s another way to chase a championship,” Vick said of coaching. “You know I’m not done. I’m not done by any means. You know I didn’t get the championship when I was playing, so, hey, maybe I’d get lucky one year, maybe fortunate enough to join the staff that may be good enough.”
