Coach Vick? Ex-Falcon finds himself flying high in Atlanta Again.


There are some who retire after their due diligence to the game, but there are others who can never leave. That is the case with NFL legend Mike Vick. After being absent from the game for 3 years, Vick has returned, but he will be on the sideline as a Offensive Coordinator in a new football league, the Alliance of American Football league. It is set to debut next February. Vick will be working with the league’s Atlanta based team. He won't have full control of the offense in the beginning, as this is very first coaching job, Head coach of the team and former Minnesota Vikings Coach, Brad Childress, will be calling most of the plays early on and will ease off as Vick becomes more comfortable.

When asked about the opportunity Vick replied, "I've always had a passion for teaching, a passion for coaching." He told reporters at a news conference on Wednesday morning in Atlanta, "when Brad called me about this opportunity, I felt like it was obviously something I couldn't pass up." It will be interesting to see if Vick’s sensational play can translate to the sideline next spring. With a name like his on the sideline, the AAF will be sure to attract some viewers also, but will this new league pan out? We can only wait and see.
