When former 49ers running back Glen Coffee abruptly retired from pro football in August, he explained the decision by saying, “I’ve told Christ it’s time to go.”
Coffee apparently left out two words.
The Okaloosa County, Florida website shows that a man named Glenwood Razeem Coffee, who was born on the same day (May 1, 1987) as Glen Coffee and who lives in the same town (Fort Walton Beach, Florida) where Glen Coffee went to high school was arrested earlier today for possession of a concealed firearm.
Coffee, a third-round pick out of Alabama in 2009, played only one year with the 49ers. He retired during training camp.
