Former New England Patriot quarterback, Drew Bledsoe is back in football. The 41-year-old has recently accepted the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coaching job at Summit High School in Bend, Oregon where Bledsoe and his family live. He's following in the footsteps of his dad who coached for 35 years.
After retiring seven years ago, Bledsoe has had quite the non-football career. He's started a winery, a private investment firm, a specialty coffee roasting company and the Drew Bledsoe Foundation. And he was inducted in the the Patriots Hall of Fame. Not bad for a guy who was always just an average quarterback.
It appears Bledsoe has his hands full this season. The Summit Storm was outscored by almost 200 points and finished last season with a 2-7 record. Good news is that they're returning 12 starters and their senior quarterback. It will be interesting to see if he turns this team around.
Good luck, Coach Bledsoe!
