The search for Texas A&M’s new head football coach has officially begun after the program parted ways with longtime head coach Jimbo Fisher on Sunday. And whoever fills the coaching vacancy may have the help of former Texas A&M star Johnny Manziel available to them if it’s wanted.

Manziel famously played at Texas A&M from 2012-2013 where he took the world by storm by winning the Heisman Trophy as a freshman.

He is amongst the most iconic players to ever play at the school. And it seems like he would love to be involved in the program in some capacity for whoever the next head coach is.

“I have faith in the Texas A&M leadership to put somebody in place to get us where we need to be,” tweeted Manziel on the coaching vacancy. “The pieces for success are in the building. However, I can help in any capacity. I would love nothing more.”

Fans quickly began to speculate about this tweet, with many assuming that this may mean that Manziel could potentially be interested in coaching.

Obviously Manziel has nowhere near the credentials to seriously be a head coaching candidate. Even an offensive coordinator job would be pretty absurd given his lack of coaching experience.

However, he would certainly be a pretty intriguing option as a potential quarterback’s coach for whoever the next Texas A&M head coach ends up being.

It’s also very possible that Manziel could also just mean that he wants to help in a mentor role, and not a role that is officially affiliated with the program.

Regardless, it seems like Manziel is fully on board with this coaching search and wants to help the program thrive in the future without Jimbo Fisher.
