Houston (CBS HOUSTON) – The Houston Texans best player, J.J. Watt, sees himself as a coach when he calls the playing career quits. But his Alma Mater Wisconsin or a number of NFL teams shouldn’t be too hopeful. Watt told Mad Radio’s Mike Meltser and Seth Payne on SportsRadio 610 on Friday that he wants to be a High School Football Coach.
Meltser asked Watt if he wasn’t the best defensive player in the NFL right now, what job he thought he would be doing.
“I think I would be coaching high school football,” Watt said. “If that requires being a high school gym teacher, whatever it may be, however I can do that, I just want to have that impact. And that is what I want to do when I’m done (playing in the NFL) I want to coach high school football and that’s always what I’ve wanted to do.
“Maybe my life takes me a different path with movies and things like that, but as of right now, at some point in my life I will definitely coach high school football. Just because the impact you can have on kids, and the wisdom you can help give them and teach them and I think they are just so impressionable. I was impressionable at that age and my high school coach did such an unbelievable job helping me, I want to do that for other kids.”
Watt has yet be in any movies, but he has appeared on FX’s “The League” and FOX’s “New Girl” in the last few years. Watt is also good friends with Arnold Schwarzenegger, who could probably help the defensive end get into movies.
