Former five-time Pro Bowl receiver Andre “Bad Moon” Rison has gotten serious about a post-playing days coaching career.
He recently founded the Andre Rison Football Academy, which, according to the academy’s website, will tour the United Kingdom this spring before traveling throughout the United States this summer.
FOX Sports’ Jay Glazer now reports that Rison was among those interviewed for the Redskins’ wide receivers coach vacancy in January. The position ultimately went to Keenan McCardell.
Rison, 42, played his last NFL down as a member of the Raiders in 2000. He would go on to win a Grey Cup with the CFL’s Toronto Argonauts, and later appeared on MTV’s Made program as a coach attempting to turn a nerd into a football player.
Rison was reportedly arrested for public drunkenness in December of 2008.
