Alexander brings NFL credentials as both player, coach to the Bobcats

on

Gerald Alexander observed an NFL training camp through a totally different lens earlier this summer.

For the second time in as many years, Montana State’s new secondary coach was a part of the Bill Walsh Minority Fellowship, an internship program that brings young minority coaches to NFL training camps before their respective collegiate fall camps open. Alexander had a brief stop at spring mini camp with the Tennessee Titans in the spring of 2015. In July, Alexander spent two weeks working with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Between 2007 and 2011, NFL training camp elicited an entirely different feeling in Alexander. The former four-time first-team All-Western Athletic Conference selection led Boise State to an improbable win over Oklahoma in the Fiesta Bowl to cap the 2006 season before becoming was the 61st overall selection in the 2007 NFL Draft by the Detroit Lions.
