Teddy Bridgewater Returns To Miami Northwestern High School As Head Coach

Former NFL quarterback and Miami Northwestern High School alumnus, Teddy Bridgewater, is making a comeback to his alma mater as the new head coach. After retiring from the Detroit Lions in 2023, Bridgewater has decided to give back to the community that shaped him. Miami Northwestern athletic director, Andre Williams, expressed his enthusiasm for having Bridgewater take on the role, stating that Bridgewater’s deep ties to the school and the tradition make him an ideal candidate.

Although this is Bridgewater’s first coaching position, he is no stranger to the Miami area. Born and raised in the city, Bridgewater played for Miami Northwestern from 2008 to 2011. During his time in high school, Bridgewater emerged as one of the top quarterback prospects in the nation. He even participated in the prestigious U.S. Army All-American Bowl after three successful years as Miami Northwestern’s starting quarterback.

Choosing to turn down offers from local powerhouses like Florida and Miami, Bridgewater opted to join the University of Louisville in 2011. His impact was immediate, as he earned the starting job just four games into his freshman season. Bridgewater’s remarkable performances led him to be named the Big East Rookie of the Year, throwing for 2,129 yards and 14 touchdowns, while also displaying his rushing abilities with four additional touchdowns on the ground.

Continuing his success, Bridgewater guided Louisville to a Big East title and a memorable victory against Florida in the 2012 Sugar Bowl. His junior year in 2013 proved to be outstanding as well, boasting a 12-1 record as the team’s starting quarterback. Throughout his college career, Bridgewater accumulated 9,817 passing yards, 72 touchdowns, and only 24 interceptions, solidifying his status as one of the nation’s top quarterbacks.

Following an impressive college career, Bridgewater declared for the 2014 and was selected by the Minnesota Vikings as the 32nd overall pick in the first round. He spent four seasons with the Vikings before playing for various teams, including the New York Jets, New Orleans Saints, Carolina Panthers, Denver Broncos, Miami Dolphins, and finally ending his career with the Detroit Lions.
