SANDPOINT, Idaho — Former NFL quarterback Jake Plummer will be the quarterbacks coach at Sandpoint High School this season, head coach Mike Mitchell said.
Plummer, who lives in the resort town, will be paid as a normal assistant high school coach, Mitchell said.
"It will not be as much as NFL pay," Mitchell said.
A native of Boise, Idaho, Plummer played at Arizona State, and at Arizona and Denver of the NFL before retiring in 2006. He threw for more than 29,000 yards, plus 161 touchdowns and 161 interceptions in his decade-long pro career.
Plummer retired to Sandpoint, an outdoor mecca in the Rocky Mountains along the shores of Lake Pend Oreille. His brother, Eric, already lived in the town.
"He wants to help out as much as he can and help the kids of the community," Mitchell said. "He's a great guy."
