SS PODCAST: Lions WR coach Antwaan Randle El on Super Bowl wins, living for Christ

THIS IS THE SPORTS SPECTRUM PODCAST
WITH JASON ROMANO, FEATURING ANTWAAN RANDLE EL

Antwaan Randle El is currently the wide receivers coach for the Detroit Lions. In 2020, he was an offensive assistant coach with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and helped the team to a Super Bowl championship.

As a player, Randle El was selected as a wide receiver in the second round of the 2002 NFL Draft by the Pittsburgh Steelers out of Indiana. In 2005, he threw a memorable touchdown pass in Super Bowl XL, helping the Steelers beat Seattle. His NFL career spanned four seasons with the Steelers, four seasons with Washington, and one final season in 2010 with the Steelers.

In college, Randle El excelled as a three-sport athlete, playing baseball, basketball and football. But it was his play at quarterback that stood out and saw him named Big Ten Most Valuable Player and first-team All-American in his senior season of 2001. While at Indiana, Randle El became the first player in NCAA Division I history to pass for 40 career touchdowns and score 40 career rushing touchdowns

Today on the podcast, we talk to Randle El about his faith in God, living his life to honor Christ, coaching and winning a Super Bowl last year with Tampa, and how he hopes to make an impact as a coach with the Lions.
