Former Pitt DB Therran Coleman Transfers To Western Michigan

Former Pitt DB Therran Coleman Transfers To Western Michigan

Weeks after announcing his departure from Pitt, defensive back Therran Coleman has a new home.

The former Brashear star has decided to transfer and play his last year of college at Western Michigan.

Coleman is going to a program where he can make an immediate impact since Western Michigan’s two safeties from 2019, Justin Tranquill and Stefan Claiborne are graduating.

Despite having the apparent skillset to play at a high level, Coleman was never able to make a dent in Pitt’s secondary. In three years, Coleman played in 34 games At corner, free safety, Nickel back and on special teams, making 18 tackles, one forced fumble and one interception.

Coleman will have one year of athletic eligibility at Western Michigan.

Assuming Damar Hamlin’s request to the NCAA for a 5th year of eligibility isn’t granted, Pitt will be losing four defensive backs from last year’s team: Hamlin, Coleman, Dane Jackson and Jazzee Stocker.

Hamlin should get his 5th year. He was injured in 2016 and only played in 3 games. Has a valid argument.

There is zero precedent for Hamlin getting a fifth year. He played in the second half of the season, making him ineligible for a hardship waiver.

Coleman should have started this past season, ESPECIALLY after watching Pinnock get beat time and time again! I’d take him over Pinnock, Mathis & Hacklett at DB any day!
