Fresh off his firing as head coach of the Seattle Seahawks last season, a report has come out indicating that Jim Mora Jr. has taken an unspecified role with an area high school football team, along with former Mora staffer Chris Beake, who will be defensive coordinator.
“Jim will be involved,” [Bellevue head coach Butch] Goncharoff said. “I don’t know in what capacity yet. It’s great. He’s an outstanding guy in whatever capacity we get him, even if it’s only for spring ball or summer. It’s great to have him around. He’s a great resource for us.”
“It’s an opportunity for me to grow as a young coach and do the things I’ve learned over the years,” Beake said. “I’ve done a lot of things in the NFL, but I’ve never done it where you put in a defense, and you teach it, and you run it and you call it. That’s exciting for me.” –Seattle Times.
Mora might just be biding his time until he can find a better job in the college or pro ranks. But surely a guy in the NFL doesn’t want to be dealing with players still in school, with the midterms and what not. Midterms? MIDTERMS? Yeah, I know it was his dad that made that quip. I don’t care; it’s still funny. To me.
