Kadarron Anderson Joins Furman Football Staff

GREENVILLE, S.C. -- Furman All-America linebacker Kadarron Anderson has returned to his alma mater and Paladin football in the role of assistant in charge of defensive quality control, head coach Bruce Fowler has announced.

"We're certainly glad to have Kadarron back and again part of our football program," said Fowler in making the announcement.  "He was highly respected as a player and an outstanding leader who brings those same qualities to our staff."  

Anderson, a 2012 graduate and free agent signee of the New Orleans Saints this past spring, made it to the final round of preseason cuts with the Saints.

The Greenwood, S.C., product and three-time All-Southern Conference pick paced the league in tackles in 2011 with 111 stops, an average of 11.1 per game, despite missing the season finale against Florida due injury.  A three-year starter, he tallied 372 stops, including 21 for-loss, in his 44-game Paladin tenure, the 13th-highest tackle total in Furman history.  He was named to the College Sporting News FCS Fabulous Fifty All-America Team after capturing AFCA and Associated Press All-America accolades in December.  He also played in the 2012 AstroTurf NFLPA Collegiate Bowl in Carson, Calif., in January.
