Another former NFL has gone back to his roots. According to the Charlotte Observer, six-time pro bowl wide receiver Randy Moss has taken the job of associate head coach at Victory Christian Center School in Charlotte.
Moss will be coaching his son Thaddeus Moss, who will be a junior this year. Moss’ son, who is 6-4 and 240 pounds, has spent his first two years of high school ball playing basketball and football at schools in Kentucky, Rhode Island and West Virginia.
MaxPreps.com’s Steve Spiewak reports that as a freshman the younger Moss caught 12 passes as a freshman in Kentucky.
Randy Moss played high school football, basketball and was on the track and field team at DuPont High School in West Virginia. Moss led Dupont, which is now Riverside High School, to state football titles in 1992, 1993 and 1994.
In addition to playing wide receiver in high school, Moss was a defensive bank, returned kickoffs and punts, plus he was the team’s punter and kicker. He was West Virginia’s Player of the Year in 1994 and was named to Parade’s All-America team as a senior.
Moss was equally as good on the basketball court, being named West Virginia Player of the Year in 1993 and 1994 and played with future NBA guard Jason Williams.
