He was All-Pac-10 second-team as a senior for the USC Trojans.[2] He transferred to USC from Palomar College in San Marcos, CA.[3] Cash accepted a scholarship to University of Colorado out of high school, but a mix-up with his transcript prevented him from enrolling.[1]

Professional career

Cash was selected by the Detroit Lions in the 6th round (175th overall) of the 2002 NFL Draft. He started in 12 games and had 100 tackles and one interception his rookie season with the Lions, but he missed the 2003 campaign with a knee injury.[4] In 2004, Cash played in 11 games for the Lions, starting five. Cash joined the Atlanta Falcons in September 2005 after being released by the Lions in preseason,[5] but only played in three games. Cash spent the 2006 season (after September 2) on injured reserve.[6] Unable to stay healthy, he was released thereafter by the Falcons and did not play another NFL game.[7]


He served as defensive coordinator for Franklin High School's football team for five years.[7] In March 2013, Cash was hired as safeties coach at Florida A&M University.[7]
