Former Eagle running back Keith Byars is coaching high school football in Boca Raton, Fla., the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports.

Byars was a first-round pick by the Eagles in 1986 and played in Philadelphia through the end of the 1992 season. He then played for Miami, New England and the New York Jets. His last NFL season was 1998.

"He's quite a catch for us," Boca athletic director Bill Massey said, according to the Sun-Sentinel. "He established himself with the JV last year and with his NFL experiences and contacts he's the total package.
