Jason Witten is about to begin his football coaching career. But it won’t be with the Dallas Cowboys.

Liberty Christian School, in the Fort Worth suburb of Argyle, has announced that the 11-time Pro Bowler will be the Warriors’ new head coach.

Long thought to be a coaching prospect at some level, Witten takes over a high school program that went 2-7 last season and 3-8 the year prior.

The veteran tight end announced that he is retiring from his career as a player after sixteen years with the Cowboys, a season with the Raiders, and a yearlong break in 2018 as an ESPN broadcaster. He has said he will sign a one-day contract with Dallas in March so he can officially retire as a Cowboy.
