Randy Moss is a few years away from being enshrined in Canton, Ohio at the Pro Football Hall of Fame as he was one of the most dominant receivers of all-time, and now the NFL record holder can add high school football coach on his impressive resume.
Moss joined the staff at Victory Christian Center School in Charlotte, N.C. where he was named the associate head coach, according to a report by the Charlotte Observer. Moss and his family moved from the New England area to Charlotte according to Victory Christian head coach Dee Brown.
The former Minnesota Vikings, Oakland Raiders, Tennessee Titans, New England Patriots and San Francisco 49ers wide receiver will coach his son, Thaddeus, who is a 6-4, 240-pound junior who is hoping to inherit some of his father’s skills on the football field.
Like his old man, Thaddeus also doubles as a high school basketball player and according to Yahoo, split his freshman year at Boone County High (Florence, Ky.) and St. Albans School (Charleston, W.Va.) to play hoops. He was a top performer at Rhode Island’s Lincoln High last year as a sophomore.
The elder Moss last played in 2012 for the 49ers when he recorded 28 receptions for 434 yards and three touchdowns.
For his 14-year NFL career, Moss tallied 982 receptions for 15,292 yards and 156 touchdowns which is good enough that we should see him in the Hall of Fame as early as 2017. By that time, Thaddeus could be playing college football somewhere and trying to follow in the footsteps of his old man.
