"I'm excited to be back at Southern Miss with the Golden Eagles," said Favre, who played quarterback for the team from 1987-1990. He added, "I'm not committing to a new career in broadcasting, but just wanted to support Southern Miss and check out the view from the press box. It should be fun and I hope the fans enjoy it."
