Coffee talks about draft and Alabama

Glen Coffee made a statement Friday afternoon about his decision to enter the NFL draft. It came via a release from UA. You can read the entire statement below.

TUSCALOOSA – Crimson Tide junior running back Glen Coffee announced his intentions to forgo his final season of eligibility at the University of Alabama on Friday to enter the National Football League Draft.

“I really enjoyed my time at the University of Alabama, but I think it is the right time for me to move on to the NFL,” Coffee said on Friday afternoon. “Alabama has been a tremendous place for me to develop as both a football player and a person. I couldn’t have asked for a better group of coaches. I want to personally thank Coach (Nick) Saban and Coach (Burton) Burns for everything they have done me.”

Coffee leaves after rushing for 1,383 yards on 233 carries and 10 touchdowns during his junior campaign, which is tied for the second-highest single-season total in school history. He rushed for 2,107 yards during his three years at the Capstone and finishes 11th on the Crimson Tide’s all-time rushing list.

    Not a mistake…..Without the 2 All American lineman yall will not have a back break 1000 yards this year. It will be running back by committee. He was smart to go ahead and declare.

    Ballplay, I will bet you Ingram breaks 1000 barring an injury. Remember we were the only school in the country with two freshmen all americans, the same freshman you tried to tell me of which none would make an impact immediately in the sec.
