Andre Coleman Returns to K-State As Wide Receivers Coach

What KMAN first reported nearly two weeks ago is now finalized as former Kansas State Wildcat Football standout Andre Coleman is returning to the program after a nearly 20-year absence. The announcement was made on Wednesday by Head Football Coach Bill Snyder.

A four-year letterwinner at wide receiver under Snyder from 1990-93, Coleman spent the last three seasons on head coach and former K-State offensive lineman Eric Wolford’s staff. Coleman, who went on to have a successful five-year career in the NFL as a player, also became the first Wildcat football player to score a touchdown in a Super Bowl.

“We are pleased to have Andre join our staff,” Snyder said. “As a successful ex-player from our program he has a strong understanding and belief in the philosophy and intrinsic values we believe in. Having worked with Eric Wolford, also an ex-Kansas State player, Andre has experience coaching in a program with a very similar approach to ours. He is a caring person who works well with young men and fits in well with our coaching staff.”

Coleman comes back to K-State after two seasons as Wide Receivers Coach under former fellow Wildcat Eric Wolford at Youngstown State. The Penguins posted a 7-4 record in 2012 which included a road victory at Pittsburgh in the season opener.
