How long after Peyton Manning's retirement will he be an OC?

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

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.

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.

But if it's all about money, I don't see it. The guy is loaded. He can do TV/radio and make more money. But if he wants to stay in football in some way, he'll be a coach.
