Report: Kurt Warner named offensive coordinator at Arizona high school

Wednesday April 8th, 2015

Former NFL quarterback Kurt Warner has been named offensive coordinator at Desert Mountain High in Scottsdale, Ariz., The Arizona Republic reports.

Warner, 43, spent five seasons quarterbacking the Arizona Cardinals, leading them to their only Super Bowl appearance, in 2009. He was named 1999 NFL MVP as a member of the St. Louis Rams, who he led to a Super Bowl title that season.

Warner has helped coach Desert Mountain since his son Kade, now a junior receiver and linebacker, started in the football program during his freshman year, according to The Arizona Republic. Warner served as quarterbacks coach before taking over offensive coordinator responsibilities.

A four-time Pro Bowl quarterback, Warner threw for 32,344 yards (No. 34 all-time) and 208 touchdowns (No. 33 all-time) in 12 NFL seasons. He retired after the 2009 season and became eligible for the Hall of Fame in 2015, falling short of election in his first year of eligibility.

Since retiring, Warner has served as an analyst on NFL Network and hosted a reality television show on USA Network.
