It's time to say goodbye to the golf course and hello to the gridiron once again for legendary quarterback Drew Brees. While he won't be throwing passes with 300-pound linemen in his face, Brees is ready to put his coaching hat on.

In a bit of a surprising move, it was announced that Brees has been hired by Purdue, his alma mater, as an interim assistant coach. This is awesome.

Brees was a stud at Purdue before going on to break several records in the NFL. With the coaching transition for the Boilermakers, the school decided to bring back an all-time great. This is quite the move.
