Randy Moss Breaks Down While Discussing Late Coach Dennis Green (VIDEO)
Hard to believe, but next month will mark a year since former NFL head coach Dennis Green passed away of cardiac arrest. He was 67.
Green made a significant impact on Randy Moss‘ life and career and it showed when Moss came back to the Minnesota Vikings’ facility this week to celebrate his upcoming induction into their Ring of Honor.
Moss was asked Wednesday what he would say to Green, who died in July 2016, if he had the chance.
“I don’t know, man,” said Moss, before becoming overcome with emotion. “I was 6 years old playing this game. On draft day, I really don’t know why I was treated the way I was treated on draft day, but Coach Green gave me an opportunity, man. And I told him, ‘Coach, you’re not going to regret this.’
“So, you ask me what I would say to him. Man, I’d probably just fall in his arms and give him a hug. There’s no words that I can tell him.”
