Brett Favre said coaching or being a general manager in the NFL is something he would be interested in, according to ESPN.

Favre, 47, played 20 years in the NFL and made two Super Bowl appearances as the quarterback of the Green Bay Packers while being chosen for the Pro Bowl 11 times. He played in a record 299 consecutive games, passing for 71,838 yards and 508 touchdowns during his career, according to the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

"That type of stuff (being a general manager) has crossed my mind because it's no different to me than coaching," Favre told ESPN Wisconsin. It's being involved in the game in some aspect."

Favre spent two seasons serving as an assistant football coach at Oak Grove High School in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, wrote USA Today.

"I feel like that if I don't coach or work at that level in some point of my life, that I'm going to waste a lot of knowledge that I have that I should be using it with kids -- or adults, at that [NFL] level," Favre told ESPN.

"I would say, I'd never say never. I believe that would be a dream job, working as a coach there (at Green Bay) or in some form of administration. I don't know, and I don't want to create a stir [by talking about it], because who knows? But I would say, 'Never say never,'" he continued.

Favre said for now, his priority is following his daughter's volleyball career at his alma mater Southern Mississippi. Breleigh Favre will be a freshman on the Golden Eagles squad this fall as an outside hitter.

"Right now, I don't want to miss any of Breleigh's volleyball career, so I'm really not even thinking about it until that day comes," Favre told ESPN.

Favre was drafted by the Atlanta Falcons in 1991 and traded to the Packers after his rookie season. He also played for the New York Jets and Minnesota Vikings, which he led to the NFC title game in 2009.
