The gunslinger hasn't ruled out coaching in the NFL in his future.

This interview slipped through the cracks over the weekend, but TMZ interviewed Brett Favre and asked him if he'd be interested in becoming the next head coach of the Green Bay Packers. 

"It's definitely interesting, but believe me, that's not going to happen. How could you not be intrigued by that?" Favre said. "They would never offer, but even if they would, that's ... I'm not ready for that and neither are they."

Favre added that he can see himself coaching in the NFL at some point but he's not ready to commit the time it takes to do be a coach in college or the pros. 

"Will I do it? Who knows. I've learned to never say never," he said. 

"I do feel like I have a lot to offer the next level and the next level after that."

Immediately after Mike McCarthy was fired by the Packers following a Week 14 loss to the Cardinals, Las Vegas released odds on who their next head coach would be and Favre was listed with 1,000-to-1 odds. 

Just imagine the grizzled old gunslinger wearing a headset on the sidelines and screaming at Aaron Rodgers. That's the kind of stuff dreams are made of.
