Philip Rivers is set to start his first season as Alabama high school head coach, but the eight-time Pro Bowl quarterback does not rule out a return to the NFL later this season.
“I’ll just be ready,” Rivers said. “I want to make sure I’m very clear: I’m not predicting what will play in December or January, for that matter. First, you must have someone who wants you, and second, it must be right.
“But I haven’t completely ruled out that.”
Air conditioning can be a problem if Rivers isn’t in NFL training camp. He pointed out that he is currently not in a playful way.
“I’m not quite there,” Rivers said. “I’m going back there. I wouldn’t have gained weight if I had to show up (to training camp) last week, that’s for sure. The balls are here in this heat. It’s not that hard to lather well.”
