Johnny Manziel's new AAF coach Mike Singletary also coaches a Texas high school

With former Heisman winner Johnny Manziel officially rejoining the United States football world and signing with the Memphis Express, his new coach will face the task of trying to find what made him great at Texas A&M.
That coach, Mike Singletary, is also the Trinity Christian Academy (Addison, Texas) head coach, according to SportsDay Dallas News.
“It’s amazing so many things that you hear beforehand and you try to keep away from forming opinions of what you think a person might be like, and you actually meet him and he’s very pleasant,” Singletary said at Manziel’s introductory press conference Tuesday, according to the outlet.
“(I) just want to get back to being Johnny Manziel, whatever that was and whoever that was.”
