Ahman Green has decided to retire from the NFL as a Green Bay Packers player.

Green, the franchise’s all-time leading rusher, made his retirement announcement official at Lambeau Field on Thursday night.

Green will not be away from the game completely.

The 34-year-old native of Omaha, Nebraska and Nebraska Cornhuskers star will be a sideline analyst for the Big Ten network this season. He also will be doing some volunteer high school coaching this fall in the Green Bay, Wisconsin area.

Green played last season in the United Football League for his hometown Omaha Nighthawks.

Omaha Nighthawks of UFL signs Maurice Clarett to contract

Maurice Clarett is getting a new lease on life as far as pro football is concerned.

Clarett signed a one-year contract with the United Football League team on Monday after meeting with Omaha Nighthawks team officials and UFL commissioner Michael Huyghue who agreed to give him a chance.

At Sunday’s practice with Omaha, Clarett wore his usual number 13. It was his first football activity since he was a Denver Broncos draft pick.

The 6-foot, 220 pound Clarett will be meeting with reporters on Wednesday.

Clarett, who is now 26-years-old, needed a Franklin County judge’s permission to leave the state of Ohio to work out for the UFL’s Nighthawks. He was allowed out of the state for 30 days. Omaha general manager Rick Mueller says he doesn’t see any reason why Clarett won’t be allowed to stay the entire season in Omaha or travel to road games. All of that still has to be worked out with the court and probation officers.

Clarett has a familiar teammate on the Omaha roster. It’s Roy Hall, an Ohio State classmate and close friend. They had been working out together at Ohio State prior to Omaha having its preseason practices.

The United Football League has an average salary of $50,000.

Commissioner Huyghue had said last week that he wouldn’t allow Clarett to sign with the Nighthawks unless the team agreed to provide a strong support system for the former Ohio State star. Omaha native, Ahman Green, a former Green Bay Packers star, has agreed to serve as Clarett’s mentor.

Maurice Clarett ready to get back on field; seeks permission to travel to Omaha for tryout

Maurice Clarett, who recently returned to Ohio State University to finish his degree requirements, also wants to return to the football field.

With his attorney, Michael Hoague’s help, Clarett filed a motion with Franklin County Common Pleas Court Judge David Fais, asking for permission to leave the state of Ohio to travel to tryout with the Omaha Nighthawks of the United Football League. The review motion has been moved from Monday August 23 to August 30, which means Clarett cannot leave the state until he receives clearance from Judge Fais’ court.

The expansion Omaha franchise will be making its debut in the United Football League’s second year in the fall. Other teams in the league include the Florida Tuskers, Hartford Colonials, Las Vegas Locomotives and the Sacramento Mountain Lions. His potential teammates could be former NFL stars Jeff Garcia and Ahman Green.

The Nighthawks open their season September 24 against the Hartford Colonials.

Omaha’s player personnel director is Ted Sundquist, former general manager of the Denver Broncos, who selected Clarett in the third round of the 2005 NFL draft.

Clarett will forever be remembered for his freshman season when he rushed for 1,237 yards in 2002, helping Ohio State to its first national title in 34 years. He scored the game-winning touchdown in the second overtime of the Fiesta Bowl upset win over Number 1 Miami of Florida.
