Veterans of Cincinnati: RB Craig Taylor

A quick update on Bengals running back Craig Taylor, who was selected in the sixth round of the 1989 NFL draft.

Craig Taylor was here and gone.

Drafted out of West Virginia during the sixth round of the 1989 NFL draft, Taylor spent three seasons in Cincinnati accumulating 480 yards rushing on 114 carries, scoring seven touchdowns. Then he retired. A story in the Register-Herald provides more about his post-NFL career:

He played three years with that franchise, then he decided to retire as a player and returned to the university to complete his studies for a bachelor’s degree. He majored in sport management, and graduated in 1995.

Taylor then returned to his native New Jersey and started coaching high school football. And he’s still happily doing that.

Playing football in the NFL may not have been for Taylor, but it's good to see he's found something he enjoys in coaching the sport.
