Is Kroy Biermann considering a new career as full-time stay at home dad? Prior to the start of the 2016/17 NFL season, many fans were shocked when husband of the Don’t Be Tardy star Kim Zolciak, was cut from Buffalo Bills.

Kroy spent his entire career with the Atlanta Falcons until becoming a free agent this year. Things didn’t work out with the Bills, but don’t worry about Kroy, he’s got a plan!

“It definitely played itself out in an interesting direction this year, but I’ve definitely enjoyed the time,” Kroy told the Daily Dish about his time off the field. “This year was the first year the boys started school, so it’s been exciting to be around that with them and take them to school and pick them up and see the excitement in their eyes and do their homework with them. Had I been somewhere else, I would have missed out on a lot of that stuff.”

But Kroy hasn’t given up completely on the NFL and is still in talks with other teams to continue the “fun journey.”

“I met with some teams earlier on. Most recently a lot of it’s been through the phone, but I do want things to be on my terms per se. I could have done a lot of different things and been in a position [where] it wouldn’t have been something that would have been amazing to me. It would have worked, but it wouldn’t have been what I wanted and I’m far enough in my career where I’m not out there running my head into a wall per se. I want it to be a good ending, so we’ll see. It may end up this season. It may not, it may be next season. There’s no definitive answers to where this thing will end up, but it’s definitely been a fun journey.”

Kim would like her husband to coach pro-football, but Kroy isn’t feeling it at that level.

“Probably not. I could maybe do some high school stuff. I definitely do not envy a coach’s job,” he explained. “As a player, I’ve been on the other side and I’ve seen it and when I leave the building they got a whole other day ahead of them. They sit there and they watch film. They break down opponents. They do just mounds and mounds and mounds of work while I’m at home enjoying my kids and my family. So as much as I would enjoy that part of it, I don’t know if I could.”

So Kroy is back to considering the stay-at-home dad route because he has six kids loves it that much.

“I love my family and I feel like its second nature to me to be a father and a husband. I joke with Kim sometimes I should be a stay-at-home dad. I love it that much. But that demand [as a coach], I feel like I would miss way too much at home at that level even [at the college level], they take a ton of time away from their families. It is a major dedication to be a coach at that level, so I would definitely enjoy it. But, I don’t know if I could spend that much time away from my family.”
