One week after Kurt Warner sent the Internet into a temporary tizzy by teasing an NFL comeback, he is making a return to football -- high school football.

The Super Bowl XXXIV Most Valuable Player is joining the coaching staff at Desert Mountain High School in Scottsdale, Arizona, according to the Arizona Republic.

Warner will serve as offensive coordinator under new head coach Mike Morrissey, and will bring a wealth of offensive knowledge attained from a 12-year NFL career that included three Super Bowl appearances and two league MVPs.

The reason for Warner's involvement with the program is clear: His son, the 6-foot-2, 200-pound Kade, will be a junior receiver/linebacker on the squad. Junior quarterback Austin Nuessle spent the 2014 season as the starter, and now has the privilege of learning a new offense under the tutelage of Warner, who was a finalist for the Pro Football Hall of Fame's Class of 2015.

The Republic noted that Nuessle is expected to attract plenty of college coaches thanks to his improvements.

Imagine the impact the leader of the Greatest Show on Turf could have on the young passer.
