A reunion between the Green Bay Packers and longtime quarterback Brett Favre has been a much anticipated event among its fan base, but so far it has yet to come to fruition.
According to team president Mark Murphy, the Packers apparently reached out to Favre in 2013, but as the high school football team he coached kept winning, such an event became undoable.
Murphy said the following prior to the embarking on the team's annual Tailgate Tour on Tuesday morning, according to Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com.
"There's not a lot to report. We do have on-going communications with him, and I think relations are good. We're hopeful to have him come back soon.
"We wanted to have him come back to a game last year, and his team kept winning and winning, so it kind of made it tough to find a time where it worked."
Favre was the offensive coordinator of the Oak Grove High School team, which won the Missisippi 6A state championship last season. He will not be returning to the school in a coaching role in 2014, according to a report, perhaps leaving open the possibility that his schedule will include to a return to Green Bay this season.
