HOUSTON, Texas– The NFL asked former President George H.W. Bush to toss the coin at the Super Bowl on Sunday, reports say.

Bush, 92, was released from Houston Methodist Hospital on Monday after being treated for pneumonia for more than two weeks. His wife, Barbara Bush, was also hospitalized.

FOX Business and USA Today report Bush was offered the coin toss opportunity, but has not officially accepted.

Last year, legendary San Francisco 49ers quarterback Joe Montana flipped the coin during pregame festivities.

Super Bowl 51, between the New England Patriots and the Atlanta Falcons, is Sunday at 6:30 p.m. at NRG Stadium in Houston. You can watch all the action on FOX 8 News.
