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.
