Since hanging up his cleats, many have been wondering what the future will hold. One of the options that was believed to have a strong possibility was a potential career in coaching, but that no longer seems to be the case.

Manning recently made an appearance at the Middle Tennessee Sports Awards and revealed he would not pursue a career in coaching.

Sorry, Vols fans.

With coaching seemingly off the table, it will be interesting to see what is next for Peyton Manning. He loves the game and people respect his mind, so you know there will be offers.

Who knows, if coaching isn’t in the cards, could a front office or executive role be?
