K-State hires Coleman to coach wide receivers

Posted: Updated:

MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) - Kansas State has hired former star Andre Coleman to coach the wide receivers.

Coleman, who played for Wildcats coach Bill Snyder from 1990-93, has spent the past three seasons as an assistant coach at Youngstown State.

He takes over for Michael Smith, who left to take a similar position at Arkansas.

Coleman was 1 of the key players to helping Kansas State turn from laughingstock to power player in the old Big Eight. He was selected in the third round of the 1994 draft by San Diego, and played five years in the NFL for the Chargers, Seahawks and Steelers.

He helped the Chargers win the AFC title during the '94 season, and established a then-Super Bowl record by returning a kickoff 98 yards for a touchdown.
