WYCHECRAFT:

Former NFL coach Sam Wyche mulls House run in South Carolina (JOSH KRAUSHAAR, 7/23/09, Politico)

Sam Wyche, the longtime National Football League coach who led the Cincinnati Bengals to a Super Bowl, is now looking to pursue a career in congressional politics.

Wyche told POLITICO he’s exploring a campaign to succeed Rep. Gresham Barrett (R-S.C.), who is leaving his House seat to run for governor. [...]

He said he plans to reach out to Steve Largent, J.C. Watts and Tom Osborne – three other former pro football players who made the transition to Congress. But he cautioned that he’s only in the very early stages of exploring a campaign, and is just now beginning to discuss his interest with statewide party officials.


Maybe if Heath Shuler had been any good he'd have been a Republican too.
