Jon Kitna Expected To Coach High School Football In Tacoma

SEATTLE (CBS Seattle) – Former Seahawks quarterback Jon Kitna is expected to be named football coach at Lincoln High in Tacoma.

According to The News Tribune, Kitna started a new job as a part-time math teacher at the school Monday and has applied for the open football coach position.

Lincoln athletic director Char Davenport confirmed Kitna had applied for the coaching job and that she was not aware of any other applicants. “I know he wants to coach,” she said, “and he’ll probably be someone to reckon with if there are other applicants.”

Kitna played at Lincoln High School before starring at Central Washington University.  He then played four seasons for the Seahawks (1997-2000) before continuing his career in Cincinnati, Detroit and the last three seasons with Dallas. In 15 NFL seasons Kitna played in 141 games, passing for 29,745 yards and 169 touchdowns. He announced his retirement Jan. 12.
