For the next four years Brett Favre will follow the volleyball career of his daughter Breleigh


Brett Favre retired from the NFL in 2010 and was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame last August.  For the next four years, we know exactly what Brett will be doing and it doesn't involve football.

Favre was destined to succeed on the football field, learning the tricks of the trade when he quarterbacked Hancock North Central High School, under his dad, Irvin, who was the Hawks head coach.

From there he put his name on the map at Southern Miss and became a second-round NFL Draft pick in 1991 with Atlanta.

In 1992 he was traded to Green Bay and would prove his toughness and ability.  Favre passed for 71,838 yards and 508 touchdowns in his NFL career and guided the Packers to a Super Bowl title in 1997.

Last summer Favre was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio.

At one time, Brett was mentioned as a possible color commentator for NFL or college games or maybe a coaching job. That's been placed on hold.

These days, Brett and his wife Deanna spend time following another Favre, his daughter Breleigh, who was a standout volleyball player at Oak Grove High School.

She'll be playing volleyball in college, so there will be another Favre wearing the black and gold at Southern Miss.

Favre said, "I get asked from time to time to consider whether it be FOX, ESPN, but right now with Breleigh in the middle of playing and getting ready to go to college, it's just too much right now.  When she's done playing in four, five years, I'll consider."  He added with a smile, "They may not be calling at that time.  So, right now, I wouldn't say I've received any concrete offers, but people have inquired to see is I want to do something."

It's family first for Brett Favre.  He's enjoying the volleyball competition, with his daughter, Breleigh, making her own claim to fame.
