Colts’ Rivers named head coach-in-waiting at Alabama HS
FAIRHOPE, Ala. (AP) — Indianapolis Colts quarterback Philip Rivers has already lined up the first job of his post-playing career.
Rivers was introduced Friday as the head coach-in-waiting at St. Michael Catholic High School in a news conference on campus.
The 16-year veteran of the Los Angeles Chargers signed a one-year deal worth $25 million guaranteed in March. Rivers didn’t offer a timetable on when he’d actually be available for the Fairhope school.
“I think it’s a one-year-at-a-time deal at this point, when you get to 38 and you’ve played as long as I have,” Rivers said. “I think you take it one year at a time. We hope it’s more than one year, but I think it’s one year at a time and go from there.”
