Q: What are you up to now?

A: I run my business. I have a post-construction tenants' business that I've had for the last 16 years. I'm focusing on being a full-time dad. I'm taking a back seat this season, this will be the first year I will be in the stands for my son's football games instead of coaching him down on the field, so that will be a big adjustment. So, I have a full plate.

Q: Do you operate a foundation or own any businesses?

A: I have a foundation called the Randall Morris Foundation For Youth And Families in which we raise funds for charities in the community.

Q: Favorite part of retirement?

A: I'm not getting beat up anymore. My body has a chance to rejuvenate and I'm not as sore. What I do miss about playing though, is the camaraderie that we had as a team. We used to go to war together. I miss that, I miss my friends.

Q: Most memorable game that you played in?

A: I remember when we played the Pittsburgh Steelers, and Curt Warner was in there doing his thing. So, coach takes him out and he put me in the game. First play, I take a pitch right 52 yards for a touchdown. Next play, Curt Warner says, "put me back in." I guess he didn't want me getting any more turf time.

Q: Most memorable or favorite former teammate?

A: Charle Young and Steve Largent

Q: Favorite sports memory as a fan?

A: Watching O.J. Simpson go for over 2,000 yards. I was there, right in front of the television watching.
