Vols Legend Jason Witten Reportedly Exploring Potential College Coaching Jobs

After a 17-year NFL career, featuring a retirement to the broadcast booth, followed by a return to the field, to another retirement, Tennessee legend Jason Witten went into coaching at the prep level.

Last winter, Witten was named as the new head coach at Libery Christian in Texas. After just one season, it appears Witten could be ready to take another next with his coaching career, according to one of Sports Illustrated's partner sites, Football Scoop.

It should come as no surprise that Witten is drawing interest from the college level, given his track record as a tight end. Witten is widely considered to be one of the greats at the position and just his name alone would likely draw interest from top recruits across the country at the position.
