Kurt Warner Joins Desert Mountain as Offensive Coordinator


SCOTTSDALE, AZ. — Former AZ Cardinals quarterback and Super Bowl champion, Kurt Warner, recently teamed up with head coach Mike Morrissey as offensive coordinator for the Scottsdale Desert Mountain football team after Morrissey asked Warner if he wanted the job. Source: USA Today HS Sports.

While Morrissey was being interviewed for the head coaching job at Scottsdale Desert Mountain, he discovered he had a lot in common, football-wise, with one of the selection committee members. They talked about kids and philosophies, how to coach and how they’d run an offense. After Morrissey was hired and their conversations continued, he thought the selection committee member would make an ideal offensive coordinator. So he asked Kurt Warner: “You want the job?” And that’s how, on Friday night, a Super Bowl-winning quarterback found himself running the offense for Desert Mountain in its 20-14 overtime loss to Queen Creek.

This is not a new career path for Warner, who keeps busy with his First Things First philanthropic organization and his job as an analyst for the NFL Network. He’s at Desert Mountain because he wanted to spend more time with his son Kade, who’s a junior wide receiver. Once Kade moves on, Warner might as well.


“That’s the biggest thing,” Warner said. “As your son gets to be this age, a junior in high school, you’ve just got a couple more years with him and you know he’s going to be gone 2 ½, three hours a day playing football. It’s a passion of mine anyways, so I think that combination of being able to spend time with him and help him accomplish his dreams along with his buddies … More importantly, it’s a chance to share the passions that I have, for these young men to grow into great young men and to teach them as much as I can about this great game.”

Kurt Warner is also a popular Christian speaker who speaks about the impact God has had in his life. He and his wife Brenda are devout evangelical Christians. After his retirement from the NFL in 2010, Warner said he was looking forward to finally being a true father to his seven kids, and that he wanted to spend time with his wife. He speaks about the influence of his family, former teammates and God.
