It didn’t take Jason Witten long to unretire. Like, maybe four days.
Of course, Witten isn’t returning to the NFL as a tight end. He actually really did leave that job late last week after 17 years. But instead of returning to the NFL, Witten has taken a job as the new head football coach at Liberty Christian High School in Argyle, Texas, as relayed by Allan Bell of CBS Sports.
Witten, 38, is now on his second retirement. He first retired after the 2017 season and spent 2018 as a Monday Night Football analyst. But he returned to the Dallas Cowboys in 2019 and spent this past season with the Las Vegas Raiders. He retired as a member of the Cowboys.
Witten was named to the Pro Bowl 11 times, tying with legendary defensive lineman Bob Lilly for most in Cowboys history.
Liberty Christian is a private college prep school with 1,200 students. Current NFL offensive lineman Brad Lundblade (Oklahoma State) is a Liberty Christian product.
