Robert Griffin III hasn’t given up the thought of returning to the NFL quite yet. In any capacity.

While he said he received some calls about returning to a team as their quarterback back in November, he hasn’t closed the door on a coaching future.

His latest guest on RG3 and the Ones was former NFL wide receiver Brandon Marshall who asked him if he’d ever get into coaching.

“I appreciate the vote of confidence — yes. I want to get into coaching,” Griffin said. “I believe that it’s a passion and it’s one of those things of, where does it start? In yesterday’s league, you had to start at the bottom as an assistant …”

Marshall then began to fire off questions. He asked what kind of offense RG3 would run should he put on his coaching hat.

“I’m gonna run a combination of the [Kyle] Shanahan system with the spread RPOs that we see so prevalent in college today,” RG3 said. “Why would I take a college quarterback and put him in a system that doesn’t accentuate what he did in college?”

Griffin III found success running a spread offense under Kyle’s father, Mike Shanahan. Kyle was still the offensive coordinator on that staff in Washington.

While no offense in the league is simple, the spread offense is utilized quite a bit in high school and college programs.

But it’s a stark difference to what Kyle runs: A run-heavy, chaotic offense that is quick for a quarterback, and feared by the rest of the league.
