HOUSTON (FOX 26) -
Former Tennessee Titans quarterback Vince Young, who has yet to land another job in the NFL, said if his football career is over he will transition to a job with his alma mater, the University of Texas.
"If it doesn't work out with me with football right now, the university has a great job for me as well," Young said in an interview with FOX 26 Sports and the Houston Chronicle.
"Just being like an ambassador. Doing a lot of speaking engagements. Just letting you know what we have going on, especially helping kids get scholarships and recognizing things like that. Whatever it is, I just want to be a supporter of the university.
Young, who last played for the Philadelphia Eagles in 2011, said it would be tough for him if his football career is over.
"Yea in a way because you know you don't want to finish your career like that," Young said. "You want to finish your career on the dreams and (hopes) you have for yourself. "If it don't work out you still had a great shot at it. Still was a Pro Bowler, playoff guy. Still got a winning percentage and things like that. If it don't work out, it's all in God's hands. I just stay strong and continue to live my life and enjoy my life, especially taking care of my little ones."
Young still has hopes he will land another job in the NFL.
"I've been getting some calls, some interest," Young said. "That's the good part about it.
"You never know what's going to happen with that. I have my agent out there working.
"I've been training since January out in San Diego and back now in Texas. Just staying ready, might get a call.
"All I can do is my part and stay ready."
Young said playing in the Canadian Football League is not an option for him.
"No, not really," Young said. "No disrespect to Canada.
"They've got some great players that I know play out there, great sport as well, but it's never been an option for me."
In 2006 Young was the Associated Press NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year and he made the Pro Bowl in 2006 and 2009.
Young led Texas to the national championship in 2005.
On Wednesday Young attended a meeting of the Touchdown Club of Houston.
UT head coach Charlie Strong was the guest of honor.
