Retired Seahawks Running Back Marshawn Lynch Joins Cal Football Program in Australia

Retired Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch has been getting work at scout team running back with the Cal football program ahead of the school's 2016 opener against Hawaii in Australia.

The latest stop on Marshawn Lynch's retirement tour has landed him in Sydney, Australia, where the retired Seahawks running back has joined his alma mater, the California Golden Bears, for a few scout team reps before the school's 2016 season opener against the University of Hawaii at 7 p.m. PT this Friday. 

Cal head coach Sonny Dykes said his players have enjoyed Lynch's presence on the practice field.

"He's been really great with our players and has interacted with their families," Dykes told ESPN. "He loves young people and trying to have an impact on them. He does a lot of things that people don't know about behind the scenes. We're lucky to have him around."

Earlier this year, Lynch took his retirement venture to Egypt, where he helped host an American Football Without Barriers football camp and found time to ghost-ride a camel. Lynch was also part of a Cliff Avril-led trip to Haiti, where he helped the Seahawks defensive end improve the lives of children in the area.
