From Governor to NFL Commissioner

He confirmed Wednesday he's been approached about the league's top job.

When asked about his plans, here's what Gov. Jeb Bush had to say: "I’m flattered, but I’m governor of the state of Florida. I intend to be governor until, until I leave, which is January of 2007, and I’m not going to consider any other options other than being governor ‘til I’m finished."

Current National Football League Commissioner Paul Tagliabue plans to retire in July; Bush doesn't believe they'll hold the position for him. But his playing coy hasn't stopped Tallahassee airways from buzzing about his future.

"If a bunch of people approach me on a regular basis and paint a picture of what my life is going to be like when I step down and one of those pictures is a painting of being an NFL commissioner. I’m taking it. That’s a good one,” says Jeff Cameron of the Jeff Cameron Show.

Reports show the current commissioner making about $10 million a year.

Bush has not yet announced what he plans to do when his term ends.
