Jason Kelce appeared to reject the possibility of ever coaching football in the college ranks, but says he’s open to taking a position either in high school or the NFL.
This all comes as the 36-year-old Philadelphia Eagles center is mulling over whether or not to retire.
Appearing on The Big Podcast with Shaquille O’Neal, Kelce was asked if he’d ever consider coaching when his career comes to an end – especially if that meant a return to his home town of Cleveland Heights, Ohio.
‘If it was the number one school in Philadelphia, I might take it,’ Jason said. ‘My in-laws help out, I’m Philly right now… we’d be lost without their help with our girls and everything.
‘Cleveland heights would be something though. NFL, that’s a big time commitment.

After watching his brother win the Super Bowl, Jason was seen partying with the Chiefs
‘College, no. Not interested. Its too much, you gotta recruit, you gotta coach, you’ll never be with your family.
‘I feel like the best two levels of coaching are high school, where you get to develop kids and really form them and help them grow into men and really offer that guidance.
‘And then in the NFL you get to compete at the highest level. it’s still a time commitment in the NFL but that’s where financially it kinda makes sense with the time commitment.’
Jason was in Las Vegas watching his brother Travis win his third Super Bowl with Kansas City.
Afterwards, he was seen partying it up with other Chiefs players at a nightclub on the Strip.
