Johnny Manziel interested in coaching, media if NFL career doesn’t work out
Johnny Manziel has very little chance of ever playing in the NFL again, but that does not mean he plans to give up on a career in football.
In an appearance on “The Dan Patrick Show” Monday morning, Manziel reiterated that making an NFL return is still his goal even after he was kicked out of the CFL. However, he said he would have interest in working in some sort of coaching capacity or media role if he never gets another shot to play in the league.

Manziel also said he has been working with quarterback guru George Whitfield now that the AAF has gone under, but he would not say why he was kicked out of the CFL. He also quipped that he is going by “John” now, though he later said he was only joking about that.
Not a chyron typo. Johnny Manziel tells @dpshow he’s going by John Manziel these days. With AAF defunct, he’s working out with George Whitfield now. Has no regrets about going to Canada to play but would not say why he got kicked out. pic.twitter.com/U4xL5rDrtK

Though Manziel was only with the AAF’s Memphis Express for a short time before the league suspended all football operations, the former Heisman Trophy winner seems to have made a great impression on his coach. Manziel once again opened up recently about the mistakes he made throughout his career and personal life, but that is a story he has told many times. His chances of playing in the NFL are very slim, and time will tell if coaching or broadcasting is a possibility.
