HATTIESBURG, Miss. (AP) — Brett Favre says he might become a coach or work as a television analyst in the future, though he has no plans to enter either field anytime soon.

The 41-year-old Favre ended a 20-year playing career after an injury-plagued 2010 season with the Minnesota Vikings. The former Southern Mississippi star has famously wavered on retirement over the last few offseasons. But the three-time NFL Most Valuable Player has told WDAM-TV in Hattiesburg on Thursday that he was “starting a new career.”

Favre gave the interview at a football camp at Oak Grove High School. He says he’s spent the last several months traveling and following Southern Miss baseball.

He submitted his retirement paperwork to the NFL in January.
