Former Kansas City Chiefs WR Jerheme Urban is now a coach

The former Chiefs receiver called it quits and is now coaching at his alma mater.

Everybody remember the former Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Jerheme Urban? Give yourself a minute.

Well, Urban has retired from this NFL, hanging up the cleats after playing nine years in the NFL for the Seattle Seahawks, Arizona Cardinals and Chiefs. The last time he saw action was the 2011 season.

Now, Urban is coaching at Trintiy College, according to the Victoria Advocate. Trinity is a Division III school where Urban excelled and ultimately left to become an NFL receiver.

At 32 years old, Urban will be the offensive coordinator. Perhaps this is the start of a young coach working his way up the ladder, or simply an alumni wanting to come home.

With the Chiefs, Urban certainly gave effort but wasn't much of a factor during the disastrous season of 2011 that saw Jamaal Charles, Eric Berry and Tony Moeaki all basically miss the season. In six games that year, Urban made four catches for 35 and scored a touchdown.
