Johnny Manziel is interested in returning to where it all began - Texas A&M University.

Manziel became a supserstar while playing college ball for the Aggies in 2012 and 2013. He upset Alabama, won a Heisman and led Texas A&M to new heights.

Now years later, Manziel's professional career has been a dud. He's already looking ahead to the next chapter of his life, which could place him back at Texas A&M.

Manziel told TMZ over the weekend that he wants to get involved with Texas A&M when his playing career is over.

"I don't think I'm the same player I used to be," Johnny said, via TMZ.com. "I think I still have flashes, but I'm looking at what's next in my life and I want sports and football to be something that is gonna be a mainstay in my life for a long time."

"Now, it's figuring out where exactly that's gonna be -- whether its continuing to work with the FCF or something I'm really interested in as well is going back to Texas A&M and being a part of my school, or the program or whatever it is."
