Philip Rivers will be the football coach at St. Michael Catholic High School in Fairhope, Ala., pending his retirement from the NFL — whenever that happens.

The news was announced at a 10 a.m. press conference at the school today. Athletic director Paul Knapstein will be the interim coach. Rivers will take over when his NFL career ends.

Rivers, a 16-year NFL veteran, signed a contract for the 2020 season to quarterback the Indianapolis Colts. He was an All-State quarterback for his dad, Steve Rivers, at Athens High School in 1999 and played his college football at N.C. State.

“It’s a special day for me and my family really,” Rivers said. “I will probably get a little emotional. I had two childhood dreams. One was to play in the NFL, and I’m now going into my 17th season. The other was to be a high school football coach as my dad was. How blessed am I to be able to live both of those out!”
