Philip Rivers would be perfect for TV. He doesn’t curse. He has an amazing wardrobe, which includes bolo ties. He’s incredibly knowledgeable about the game, given he’s been the Chargers’ starting quarterback since 2006. And you can’t deny he has a face for TV. Unfortunately, it doesn’t sound like Rivers is willing to follow Tony Romo into the broadcasting booth when his playing career is over. In a recent conversation with Nick Hardwick and Judson Richards of Xtra 1360 Fox Sports Radio, Rivers revealed what he’d like to do instead: become a high school coach. “I don’t know,” Rivers said, via ESPN.com. “It’s so funny because I enjoy talking football and doing all of that. I just don’t think I’ll ever go that route. Again, I’m never going to shut that door because you just don’t know if an opportunity like that ever comes up, but I feel like I need to be on the sidelines somewhere.
