A high school football team reportedly named Super Bowl-winning quarterback Trent Dilfer as the team's head coach. According to a report from local Nashville radio host Brent Dougherty, Lipscomb Academy will named Dilfer as the team's coach.

This would be Dilfer's first official head coaching experience in an official team capacity. However, Dilfer has experience coaching the quarterback position - he coaches the Elite 11, a quarterback competition for high school quarterbacks across the country.

Now it looks like he'll get his first chance to coach a full team.

Dilfer is a former first-round pick of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, where he played for six seasons before eventually signing with the Baltimore Ravens. Although his tenure with the Ravens didn't last long - just one season - he won a Super Bowl, though the defense is mostly to thank for that.

Dilfer became the only quarterback to be let go after winning a Super Bowl. He finished his career with stints with three different teams - the Seattle Seahawks, Cleveland Browns and San Francisco 49ers - before entering his broadcasting career.

Now he'll be back on the sideline as a head coach. He'll join former Ohio State quarterback Kirk Herbstreit as football legends living in the Nashville area.
