Is the greatest Vol of them all planning a return to Rocky Top? Peyton Manning was a guest on the Dan Patrick radio show Thursday and dropped this little nugget on his potential future once his NFL career comes to a conclusion:
"Quarterback coach, I would to at Tennessee…head coach, no." – Peyton Manning on the possibility of coaching someday. @dpshow
Tennessee currently has no problems recruiting quarterbacks, as they have one of the SEC’s best in Joshua Dobbs, backed up by two high profile freshmen in Quinten Dormady and Sheriron Jones. The future of the position also looks bright as Tennessee has commits from the top 2016 and 2017 quarterback prospects on their recruiting board in Jarrett Guarantano and Hunter Johnson and are also said to be the favorite to land top 2018 quarterback prospect Trevor Lawrence.
Imagine all those players being taught the fundamentals of the game from one of the best to ever suit up. Butch Jones has quickly established himself as one of the nation’s best recruiters in his first three seasons at Tennessee. If Jones finds Manning a place on his staff in the future, his days of recruiting quarterbacks may soon be over, as the nation’s elite could be lining up to sign on at Tennessee.
