Jason Witten is returning to Texas football.
The former Dallas Cowboys tight end will coach high school football at Liberty Christian in Argyle, Texas, the school announced Monday.
A week ago, Witten retired for the second time. The first retirement, he went directly into the TV booth. This time, he'll patrol the sideline.
A third-round pick out of Tennessee, Witten made 11 Pro Bowls in his first 15 years with the Cowboys. After a one-year retirement sabbatical, he returned to Dallas. Witten played 2020 for the Las Vegas Raiders, earning 13 catches for 69 yards and two TDs.
A future Hall of Famer, Witten ended his 17-year NFL career with 1,228 receptions for 13,046 yards and 74 TDs.
After struggling in the broadcast booth before returning to football, Witten intimated that he had a desire to get into coaching when his playing career was over again. He'll begin that journey at the high school level.
