Lincoln coach Jon Kitna back to the NFL

Tacoma native Jon Kitna has signed a free agent contract with the Dallas Cowboys to serve as Kyle Orton’s backup, according to multiple reports. Starter Tony Romo is doubtful for the season finale after suffering a back injury last week.

Kitna is currently the head football coach and a math teacher at Lincoln High School, his alma mater. Kitna guided Lincoln to an 8-2 record this season, but the Abes lost to eventual state runner-up Eastside Catholic in the district playoffs. Kitna is 13-7 in two seasons as head coach.
Kitna played 15 seasons in the NFL, going 50-74 with 169 touchdowns and 165 interceptions, before retiring in January of 2012.
