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.

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.
