Former NFL coach Brad Childress said one of the regrets of his career with the Minnesota Vikings is the acquisition of Marshall Alumni and former NFL player Randy Moss.
Childress told NFL.com the team’s locker room was not stable enough to withstand Moss. “We had good guys, by and large, [but Moss] walked in the locker room and vomited on it,” he told the website Wednesday. He said cutting Moss without informing owner Zygi Wilf was also a mistake.
The Vikings acquired Moss in 2010 from the Patriots. He was released after just four weeks and went to the Tennessee Titans.
Moss still holds the NFL single season touchdown reception record (23, set in 2007). He announced his retirement this offseason. In college, he scored a touchdown in the 28 games that he played for the Herd and was a finalist for the Heisman Trophy in 1997.
Minnesota fired Childress in November when the team had a record of 3-7 a year after the team went to the NFC Championship Game.
