Teddy Bridgewater already has his post-retirement gig

Teddy Bridgewater made it clear when he joined the Detroit Lions last summer that the 2023 season would be his last in the NFL. Sure enough, Bridgewater retired right after the Lions lost to the 49ers in the NFC Championship game last Sunday.

It didn’t take long for Bridgewater to find his next career step. Bridgewater will be the new football coach at Miami Northwestern high school. It’s his alma mater, and the move had been anticipated for some time.

Best of luck to Bridgewater, whose time in Detroit consisted of exactly three snaps of kneeldowns in victory formation. He was a nice veteran backup to Jared Goff and a mentor to rookie Hendon Hooker, who is expected to the over as the No. 2 in 2024.
