It certainly appears that former quarterback Tony Romo is enjoying life as a broadcaster for CBS Sports. However, there’s at least one player in the NFL who believes Romo should consider taking on an entirely different job.
During the Cowboys-49ers game this past weekend, Seahawks wide receiver Tyler Lockett suggested that Romo should become a defensive assistant.
Lockett believes Romo would be a good defensive assistant because he sees the game at such an impressive level.
“The way Tony Romo called that 3rd down play. He might need to be a D Coordinator assistant,” Lockett tweeted on Sunday. “I think QB’s would be great at breaking down offenses for defenses.”

In 2019, it was reported that at least one team reached out to Romo to see if he was interested in coaching. He ultimately passed up that opportunity.
Romo did admit that he could eventually become a coach at some point down the road. His focus right now is on broadcasting and spending time with his family.
“Well, they’ll have to wait,” Romo said, via Cowboys Wire. “I’m sure one day I’ll coach. Right now, I’m happy with where I’m at. I’m enjoying it and I’m lucky to be in this position calling the Super Bowl. You know, I have three young boys at home that I want to be around them and watch them grow up.”
