Peyton Manning is taking his football talents to ABC's hit TV show "Modern Family."

The two-time Super Bowl champ will be in a January episode of the show. Manning will play Coach Gary, a sports tutor for Gloria (Sofia Vergara) and Jay's (Ed O'Neill) son, Joe. Gloria brings in Coach Gary to help Joe throw and catch but then he will start doing things around the house. Stepping a little bit on Jay's toes.

Manning will be on the 12th episode of the season. "Modern Family" will be Manning's first acting gig, if you don't count his 2007 SNL hosting gig.
