Jason Witten did not waste any time finding the next step in his football career.
The newly retired Raiders tight end will become head football coach for Liberty Christian School in Argyle, Texas, the school announced Monday.
Last week, Witten told ESPN last week he would retire after a 17-season career in the NFL.
A third-round pick in the 2003 NFL Draft, Witten played 16 total seasons with the Cowboys. He briefly retired and joined ESPN's "Monday Night Football" broadcast for the 2018 season before returning to Dallas in 2019.
Joining the Raiders as a free agent last offseason, he had 69 yards receiving and two touchdowns on 13 catches in 2020.
Witten said he would sign a one-day contract with Dallas in March so he could retire as a Cowboy.
