Former NFL quarterback Michael Vick has joined the Kansas City Chiefs staff as a coaching intern, according to multiple reports.
The once electrifying on-field talent recently told ESPN’s Adam Schefter about his aspirations to get into coaching, and it seems like the comments caught the attention of the Chiefs.
“I would love to coach in the National Football League one day,” Vick said. “At some point, I’d definitely love to help work with young quarterbacks and develop them and still compete, you know, with the team and with the coaches.”
Kansas City head coach Andy Reid didn’t waste any time making that happen for his former player. Vick was photographed among the Chiefs staff at camp on Tuesday, and according to Schefter, he will be there all summer long.
Vick spent 13 seasons in the NFL as a player, with a two-year break in the middle after getting busted for orchestrating a dog fighting operation. The four-time Pro Bowler officially retired as an Atlanta Falcon in June.
