ESPN fired a lot of talented people recently, including one of the best quarterbacks to ever play the game.
Once a Super Bowl-winning quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers, Steve Young had been working as an analyst as part of ESPN’s Monday Night Football broadcasts. But the BYU great and Pro Football Hall of Famer was one of the on-air personalities the network let go in late June.
His next chapter, however, won’t be in totally uncharted territory.
Young will now reportedly spend his time helping coach his two daughters on their high school’s flag football team, according to the New York Post.
“After being recently fired by ESPN this summer, the veteran San Francisco 49ers quarterback and former ESPN analyst will work as an assistant coach for the Menlo School girls’ flag football team this coming fall, the California school announced Monday.”

Women’s flag football was approved as an official sport in February, with the season starting in mid-August and running through November.
