Coleman has spent the last four seasons at Youngstown State working the last two as Wide Receivers Coach under Head Coach Eric Wolford also a former Wildcat. Coleman has also served as Tight Ends Coach and has worked with kickoff and punt returners according to YSU’s official website.
Coleman starred at K-State from 1991-93 and was part of the Wildcats first-ever bowl win against Wyoming in the 1993 Copper Bowl . Coleman was then drafted by the San Diego Chargers in 1994 and as a rookie ran a kickoff back for a touchdown during the Chargers loss to San Francisco in Super Bowl XXIX. Coleman also played in the NFL for Seattle and Pittsburgh.
