Ex-Packer Ahman Green to be BTN sideline analyst
Wednesday, August 10, 2011
OMAHA, Neb. (AP) -- Former Green Bay Packers and Nebraska running back Ahman Green is done playing football. Now he's ready to start talking about it.
The Big Ten network has hired the 34-year-old Green as a sideline analyst for selected games this fall. His first assignment for BTN is Nebraska's Sept. 3 opener against Tennessee-Chattanooga.
Green says his role would be to offer his opinion on strategies and other coaching decisions as well as other in-game issues. He also is doing some volunteer high school coaching this fall in Green Bay.
The Packers' all-time leading rusher played last season in the UFL for his hometown Omaha Nighthawks. He said he hopes to sign a one-day contract with the Packers soon so he can retire as a member of the team.
