Former Indianapolis Colts and San Diego/Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers made his debut as the head football coach for the St. Michael Catholic High School in Fairhope, Alabama.
Following the 2020 campaign, his 17th in the NFL, Rivers called it a career, announcing his retirement. It was already well-known that he would be taking over the new program in Alabama before he even played a snap for the Colts.
Rivers helped lead the Colts to a playoff spot in 2020 even though they wound up losing to the Buffalo Bills in the wild-card round. He completed 68% of his passes for 4,169 yards, 24 touchdowns and 11 interceptions.
Before that, Rivers spent 14 seasons leading the San Diego/Los Angeles Chargers as the starting quarterback, posting 59,271 passing yards and 397 touchdown passes, both of which are franchise records.
