Cal Football: DeAndre Coleman Will Return For His Senior Season

Deandre Coleman returns for his senior year - Cal Bears Online

DeAndre Coleman will not declare early for the NFL Draft and will return for his senior season at Cal.

Cal defensive tackle DeAndre Coleman will be returning for his senior season. Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times reported the story yesterday (Coleman is a Washington native).

There were reports that Coleman might be considering a move to the NFL Draft after the overhaul of the coaching staff and scouts seemed to think that he had a lot of potential on the draft boards. But it appears Sonny Dykes has made convincing enough hires (particularly with Barry Sacks at the D-line) to convince Coleman that he'll be well-suited to return to Berkeley to finish up his time at Cal.

Coleman will probably welcome the switch back to a 4-3 defense, as his size and physicality suits him well for an interior defensive tackle rather than as a 3-4 defensive end.

Coleman registered 44 tackles, 7.5 TFL, and 2.5 sacks last year. Coleman was one of the few Bears to remain reasonably healthy on defense and will be one of the anchors of a Cal defensive line that struggled with numerous injuries and personnel breakdowns in 2013.
