After the Indianapolis Colts announced the plans for Carson Wentz to undergo foot surgery, many fans were calling for one more year of Philip Rivers

Philip Rivers is a man with football coursing through his blood. It was only a matter time before Rivers hung it up to coach high school fotball. After 17 years of playing in the NFL, Rivers decided it was time to move on to coaching. Last night Rivers make his High School coaching debut for St. Michael Catholic Cardinals, and guess what, they won River’s first game.

Rivers team dominated, they won the game 49-0.

Rivers was so geeked up he could barely contain his excitement over popping his coaching cherry.

Could this be the start of a wonderful coaching career for Rivers?

It sure seems that way. Don’t be surprised if Rivers finds himself coaching in college or the NFL over the next few years.
