Chris Borland's father says his son has 'no regret' about retiring

BY foxsports • June 16, 2015

Chris Borland made one of the most shocking moves of the offseason when he decided to retire from the San Francisco 49ers after just one season. 

Borland announced his retirement nearly three months ago and his father Jeff says he hasn't looked back since.

“I think he’s every bit as confident, if not more. There’s no second-guessing, no regret at this point,” Jeff Borland told The Boston Globe, via CSN Bay Area. 

Borland has been a busy man since retiring. He has been traveling the country to meet with doctors to talk about head injuries.

“I think that he’s finding that there’s still a disconnect between the activity — the practice and the games, how much contact there is — and the people that are doing the science,” Jeff Borland said. “They haven’t necessarily stood on the sidelines to really get a feel for what’s going on out there. He’s got a practical experience that’s probably beyond most master’s degrees.” 

Borland was projected to replace the recently retired Patrick Willis in the starting lineup. Borland was considered an up and coming star in the NFL.
