Could Johnny Manziel return to the Texas A&M football program?
While speaking about the next step of his career and his desire to keep football as a major part of his life, Manziel said he would be open to a return to the Aggies where he burst onto the scene and created the Johnny Football persona.
Manziel spoke to TMZ Sports about his options when he expressed some interest in coaching, potentially at his alma mater.
“I want sports and football to be something that is gonna be a mainstay in my life for a long time,” Manziel said. “Now, it’s figuring out where exactly that’s gonna be. Whether it’s continuing to work with the FCF or something I’m really interested in as well is going back to Texas A&M and being a part of my school, or the program or whatever it is.”
When asked about coaching, Manziel said he loves the environment Jimbo Fisher is creating in College Station.
“I’m interested in the game, I’m interested in a lot of options at Texas A&M. You know, I miss my school, I miss College Station, I miss the feeling of those great times that I got to have when I was in college. And our new athletic director at Texas A&M, Ross Bjork, is a beauty of an individual and an awesome person,” Manziel said. “A guy who has really taken over our school and helped us get into a place I think we want to go to moving forward.
“The more I go back to A&M and the more I’m around Jimbo Fisher and that football team the more that I have a desire to go back and be around that in whatever capacity that may be.”
If Manziel really does want to try out coaching, how could you not bring him onto the staff in some capacity? You know the Aggies faithful would love to see the return of Johnny Football.
