PINE BLUFF, Ark. - Monte Coleman, head coach for the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff (UAPB) football team will deliver the keynote address during Sunrise Service Sunday, April 17 at 6:45 a.m. in Caldwell Hall auditorium. Music will also be rendered by Yard Voices of Praise. The event is free and open to the public.
He serves as one of the Pastors and Resident Evangelist at First Assembly in Pine Bluff. Monte Coleman became the 19th head football coach in UAPB history on November 19, 2007 and immediately began working to return the Golden Lion football program to the upper echelon of the Southwestern Athletic Conference.
Coleman’s story is truly a remarkable one. Despite not playing high school football, Coleman walked-on at the University of Central Arkansas in Conway and became the first Bear in UCA history drafted into the professional football ranks.
