Glen Coffee retires...at 23

Oh to be young, rich, and playing a key role for an NFL team.  Sounds like a dream for most of us nonathletic, overweight shlubs.  Glen Coffee decided that this dream of a lifestyle was not for him.

Glen Coffee, a backup running back for the San Francisco 49'ers, decided that he no longer had the passion for football, and decided to retire.  Coffee, was a third round pick in 2009, and had 83 carries for 226 yards, with 2 TD's.

According to www.profootballtalk.com, Glen Coffee looks like he's going to join the ministry.  Not as glamorous as scoring touchdowns on Sunday, he now will spend his Sundays in church.

Kevin Says:  I actually respect Coffee a lot for this.  He was upfront with the coaching staff, and decided football wasn't for him.  A lot of guys would have hung on for the paycheck, and play with half a heart.  It's unfortunate for the Niners organization, since he was a 3rd round pick in 2009.  Good luck to you, Glen.
