After a brief-stint in the NFL with the Seattle Seahawks, New England Patriots, and Chicago Bears, former Rutgers quarterback Mike Teel went to Wall Street and gave that up pretty quickly.

Teel returned to football as a quarterbacks coach for Kean University in 2011, 2013, Wagner College in 2012, and returned to Rutgers last season as a graduate assistant. A 2009 sixth-round draft pick of the Seahawks, Teel announced Tuesday that he will be returning to where he played his high school football, Don Bosco Prep.

During his two seasons as the starting signal caller for the Ramsey, N.J. school, Teel went 23-0 with two state champions, forming a national powerhouse. His success earned him a mere 2-star ranking by recruiting site, and chose to stay home at Rutgers where he went on to win three bowl games.

Teel still owns the Rutgers record for most passing yards in a game (447) and touchdowns (7) in the team’s triumph over Louisville 63-14 in 2008.

Teel will be the offensive coordinator for the Bergen County school under legendary head coach Greg Toal. After underachieving seasons the past three years for Ironmen standards, Teel will certainly hope to help the team improve and bring valuable experience and knowldge from his playing days from high school, Rutgers, and the NFL back to the current athletes at Bosco.
