The San Francisco 49ers expressed surprise Friday when 2009 third-round choice Glen Coffee told the team he planned to retire from the NFL. It’s not often that a third-round pick retires from the NFL in just his second season, but that’s the story of Alabama running back Glen Coffee, who announced today that he was leaving the game of football. Coffee explained his decision in a statement released through the team.
This has been a tough decision for me to make, but at this time in my life I feel it is best for me that I move on from football. I appreciate what the 49ers, my teammates and coaches have done for me, and I wish them a blessed season and all the best in the future.
