Titus Young has had an incredibly disappointing NFL career to this point, but he may have hit rock bottom earlier this week when he was arrested twice in a 15-hour span. The former Boise State star found it impossible to stay out of trouble on the field with the Detroit Lions, and that has now spilled over into his personal life. Young’s former high school coach, EC Robinson, told the Detroit Free Press on Tuesday that he has not spoken to Young since March but could have seen this coming. “Based on the last time I did see him, I knew unless he got some help there was going to be some issues, and I told him that, too,” Robinson said. “And I thought maybe since I hadn’t heard anything from him he was in some institute getting some help. That’s what I just figured. But I know the last time I saw him, I was just shocked the stage he was in at that time.” When your old coach assumes you got some sort of institutionalized help based on the conversations he had with you, something is very, very wrong. Robinson also said he hopes Young focuses on getting his life straightened out instead of worrying about football. “He was talking some things that just didn’t make sense,” he said. “I don’t know, I just wish he’d get some help. I know football is probably out of the question, right now it’s trying to get his life together.” Whether it be punching a teammate, headbutting an opponent or sabotaging his own offense, Young has done plenty of things that lead us to believe he has some deep-rooted issues that require serious attention. The words of his former coach merely confirm that.
