I think he will lean more toward ownership. Isn't his wife partial owner of the Mephis Gizzilies and wasn't he trying to get partial ownership of the Titians once his playing days were over if Tennessee would have sign him.

The Titans owner guaranteed him a FO job once he retired heard he really wanted future after his playing carer don't see how that fits the Broncos with Ol' Horse Teeth running the Broncos

I could see desperate franchises offering him a head coaching job right away. However he's too calculated to get in a bad situation like that. Peyton has a pro style football mind, I don't think his offense would work well in college but he could definitely recruit. He would be great on TV but I think he loves the game too much to be a talking head and criticize his former coworkers.

I agree with zod. Just watching him on side lines or when then have pregame locker room stuff. He has do much knowledge to give back to the game I don't see him sitting at home for very long. I could see him pulling a Jordan or elway too like owning a team. He's probably making bank with the papa johns poo he'd have enough to buy one if given the chance

Are there any famous/hall of fame type players that have accomplished anything as a coach or assistant coach? I can't think of any offhand, although I am sure there are one or two.

Pro-style offenses still have a place in college ball. See Alabama.

Ken Norton Jr and Kevin Green are assistant coaches. Dick Labeu.(sp). Steve Spurrier was a high draft pick but not a great nfl player or coach. Herm Edwards I think was pretty good. Tony Dungy as well not sure. Probably the best example is Russ Grimm.

I think he can become an OC right after he retires, but will probably take a year off first.

Jack Del Rio made a Pro Bowl but far from HOF material. Let's not forget Panthers legends Ricky Proehl and Brenston Buckner!

Never.

Dude has made so much money playing there is no way he will be tied to a 15hr/day job. Not sure on the official $$$, but I have to assume he has/will be paid more NFL money than any athlete over the course of their career.

TV gig, yes. Consultant, maybe. Developmental coach (in his hometown), maybe. Full time NFL job, no way.
