Harold Warren Moon (born November 18, 1956) is a former American and Canadian football quarterback who played for the Canadian Football League’s Edmonton Eskimos and the National Football League’s Houston Oilers, Minnesota Vikings, Seattle Seahawks and Kansas City Chiefs. He is currently a broadcaster for the Seattle Seahawks and is also a business partner with his longtime friend and agent, Leigh Steinberg at Leigh Steinberg Sports & Entertainment out of Newport Beach, California.
He is the only player ever to be enshrined by both the Pro Football Hall of Fame and Canadian Football Hall of Fame, and is one of only two people to be enshrined in both. (Former coach Bud Grant, who coached the Winnipeg Blue Bombers to four Grey Cup titles and the Minnesota Vikings to four Super Bowl games, is the other.) Moon was also the first, and currently only, modern African-American quarterback elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
Moon held the record for most passing yardage in professional football until surpassed by Damon Allen on September 4, 2006, held the record for most passing touchdowns in professional football until surpassed by Brett Favre on November 22, 2007, and held the record for most pass completions in professional football until surpassed by Brett Favre on December 23, 2007, and held the record for most pass attempts in professional football history until surpassed by Brett Favre on December 14, 2008.
