Jon Kitna to coach football at Tacoma high school

TACOMA, Wash. (AP) - Jon Kitna was hired as the football coach at Lincoln High School in Tacoma after retiring from a 15-year NFL career.

Kitna was introduced Thursday. He was recently hired at his old high school as a math teacher. Kitna received his math education degree at Central Washington University, where he was a standout quarterback and led the Wildcats to a share of the 1995 NAIA national title. Kitna went on to an NFL career with Seattle, Cincinnati, Detroit and wrapped up his career as a backup for the Dallas Cowboys.

Kitna was first contacted about the job three years ago, but decided to keep his NFL career going then. Kitna believes the Abes can become a state and possibly national power.
