Report: Randy Moss helping coach son’s high school team

Randy Moss AP

A high school football team in Charlotte reportedly has an associate head coach with quite the résumé to his credit.

According to Jonathan Jones of the Charlotte Observer, longtime star NFL wide receiver Randy Moss is on the coaching staff of Victory Christian Center School in North Carolina.

Moss’ son, Thaddeus Moss, is a member of Victory Christian’s team, the Observer reported. According to the newspaper, Randy Moss was coaching Victory Christian’s club at Cam Newton’s Thursday 7-on-7 tournament.

A sure Hall of Famer, the 37-year-old Moss played 14 NFL seasons, so he has no shortage of knowledge to share. Now-Saints tight end Benjamin Watson, a teammate of Moss in New England, once marveled about the wideout’s understanding of the game. And now, he’s got some lucky pupils to teach, it appears.

    Cordarrelle Patterson & Randy Moss will go down as the best wide Recievers of all time when it’s all said and done

    and according to packer fans he never caught 1 TD

  3. primenumber19 says: Jun 26, 2014 10:44 PM

    His behind the back Hail Mary lateral was the greatest play I ever saw

    Just be wary of catered team dinners…

    I bet Moss ends up being a great coach. He might not have been the greatest role model, but he has the knowledge to teach and mentor.

    Gotta love Randy. He did it his way and was the best in the league at one point. Good job Randy!

  7. hawkfan72 says: Jun 26, 2014 11:19 PM

    How awesome for those kids to be able to say they were coached by him!

  8. Eli Pacheco says: Jun 26, 2014 11:32 PM

    I wish a sure Hall of Famer in Charlotte would come coach at my alma mater, Garinger High. I’d settle for a heady taxi squad member honestly. Go Wildcats!

    Funny how Randy quit on the Raiders due to poor coaching, etc. then went to the Pats and had a record breaking year? Fellas, what up wit dat?

  10. burtreynoldstoupee says: Jun 27, 2014 1:06 AM

    I’ll bet he coaches when he wants to coach.

  11. cztikhldr4evr says: Jun 27, 2014 1:11 AM

    At least he’s not teaching Drivers Ed classes

  12. autumnwind999 says: Jun 27, 2014 1:38 AM

    I wonder if he’s teaching them the art of pouting and walking through their routes at the first sign of adversity.

  13. freddiec8 says: Jun 27, 2014 2:45 AM

    Good for you Randy doing something positive in your sons life good luck.

  14. joetoronto says: Jun 27, 2014 4:43 AM

    This guy is the last person on earth that should be coaching kids.

    I can hear it now, “Play when you want to play!”

  15. rationalfootballfan says: Jun 27, 2014 5:07 AM

    Hopefully Randy teaches them the mooning TD celebration and the true meaning of “Straight cash homie” haha. But this is cool to see, does anybody know if his kid is a WR? That’s a hell of a legacy to live up to

  16. twisteditoff says: Jun 27, 2014 5:36 AM

    moss will always be knowen as one of the great 3d in mn

  17. sambaughslingers says: Jun 27, 2014 7:11 AM

    Everybody One Clap

  18. qdog112 says: Jun 27, 2014 7:38 AM

    Will he teach him how to quit?

  19. bostonian13 says: Jun 27, 2014 7:38 AM

    Bring Moss back to NEW ENGLAND!!!!!

    Top 5 WR of all time. Miss that dude…

  20. hodag54501 says: Jun 27, 2014 7:43 AM

    It’s very difficult to see Randy Moss as a role model. But then again, Brett Farve, known as a wild child, is coaching a high school team.

    Life is strange sometimes.

  21. ctiggs says: Jun 27, 2014 7:53 AM

    1. Jerry Rice
    2. Calvin Johnson
    3. Randy Moss

    best three WR ever

  22. belichickdominatedjoemontana says: Jun 27, 2014 7:55 AM

    Get your 84 Coaches Shirt out…this is gonna be a fun ride.

  23. rutchaser says: Jun 27, 2014 7:59 AM

    What a great mentor. “Guys only play when you want to play.”

  24. chris1cat says: Jun 27, 2014 8:47 AM

    Man I wish Mossy was still running wild for TD’s all over the Cheeseheads, that was serious fun!
    Patterson’s turn to do it now!

  25. steelerben says: Jun 27, 2014 9:12 AM

    He’s going to have a tough time telling his players to go hard on every down with a straight face.

  26. snowlock2013 says: Jun 27, 2014 11:54 AM

    Jerry Rice
    Cris Carter
    Randy Moss

  27. dumbolt says: Jun 27, 2014 12:50 PM

    ok son , i will teach you how to quit on your team.

  28. peoriaviking says: Jun 27, 2014 2:01 PM

    Best receiver of all time. Better than Rice. Here’s why:

    What do that last two teams to set the single season scoring record (98 Vikings 07? Patriots) have in common. . . Randy Moss.

    Defenses didn’t just game plan for him, the drafted based on his dominance. He single handedly caused the Packers to draft 3 db’s in the year following his rookie season

    6 foot 4 inches tall with 4.2 speed and good hands

    Just imagine what he would have done playing with Brady as his qb for a career. Rice had Montana and Young, and then Gannon at Oakland. Moss had Randall Cunningham for one year, Daunte Culppepper, then Brady.

    Megatron may eventually catch him but not yet.

    Sure he could be an A hole off the field at times but judging the guy on his game play, there’s no question he was the best.

  29. radrntn says: Jun 27, 2014 5:48 PM

    please don’t insult guys they were real pro’s like Jerry Rice. Jerry Rice went hard at it every practice, and then after practice he stayed and practiced some more.

    Randy Moss wouldn’t even go hard for an entire game….When does “anybody” who is great at “something” ever quit . or should I quote” have a down year” …Great people don’t quit, and don’t have down years, and are never lazy

    Who is Mike Wilkening?

    Is he old enough to remember some of Randy Moss’ leadership examples?

  31. babygaga19 says: Jun 27, 2014 8:34 PM

    Moss totally played the Raiders. He knew they were big time losers. Al paid him big bank. Why risk injury?

  32. raiderapologist says: Jun 27, 2014 9:31 PM

    babygaga19 says: Jun 26, 2014 11:38 PM

    Funny how Randy quit on the Raiders due to poor coaching, etc. then went to the Pats and had a record breaking year? Fellas, what up wit dat?
    ————
    Quitters quit. That’s what up wit dat. And that’s what you will do as soon as your team starts to suck again.

    Such a loss for my highschool team. Thad is a great player, my team as well as the coaches will miss him. Good luck!#striveforgreatness

  34. lions68 says: Jun 28, 2014 3:16 AM

    Rationalfootballfan his son played QB, TE, and DE for my team

  35. stellarperformance says: Jun 28, 2014 7:07 AM

    To me, there is more to a person than sports skills. To be admired you need to be admirable, and he was not. He was a self-centered malcontent ever since he was the tallest and fastest kid in 3rd grade.

    And I am glad he never got a ring.

  36. pzebich says: Jun 28, 2014 7:35 AM

    Randy was a great player and MN should never should have traded him. Yes he had some issues but most were overblown by the media. As far as mooning the GB fans, that was just payback because when visiting teams come to lameblow fans line up and moon their bus. Favre finally got it in his first game vs the Packers.

  37. babygaga19 says: Jun 29, 2014 1:24 AM

    Off Topic

    Just watched A Football Life of Marcus Allen on NFLN. God, that guy was a freak. Really interesting how Al tried to destroy him. Only Davis, only Oakland.

  38. eklypse69 says: Jun 29, 2014 8:01 PM

    They better be winning some games, or he’ll walk off the sidelines before the end of the games, stop showing up for practices, and talk smack about the team in the local papers.
