Despite continuing to pronounce that the 2010 season would be his last, Favre returned to Minnesota in 2011 for what would become a disappointing season for the quarterback and the club. Favre retired for good at the end of 2011, and returned to Mississippi. He finished with NFL records in passing (71,838) and touchdowns (508)—both of which were previously been held by Dan Marino of the Miami Dolphins.
Favre was hired as an assistant football coach at Oak Grove High School in Hattiesburg, Mississippi. He was asked by the St. Louis Rams return to the NFL the following October, but he declined their offer. Favre admitted to the media around this time that he was suffering from some memory loss, which he contributes in part to the many injuries he sustained being his pro football career.
