|Position:||Offensive Technical Intern|
|High School:||Acradia/Mt. San Antonio|
Brad Bedell is in his third year as the offensive technical intern on the Colorado staff, as he returned to his alma mater in the spring of 2007 after retiring from professional football.
Bedell, 32, wrapped up his pro career for the Houston Texans in 2006, playing in nine games, and then decided to retire in June of this year. His desire to coaching has led him back to CU, where he was an All-American, earning two letters as an offensive guard for the 1998 and 1999 seasons, respectively, under coaches Rick Neuheisel and Gary Barnett.
He saw action in 40 National Football League games, including four starts, playing for the Cleveland Browns (2000-01), the Miami Dolphins (2003), the Green Bay Packers (2004-05) and Houston. He missed the 2002 season recovering from an injury.
At Colorado, he earned first-team All-America honors from the Football Writer's Association of America as a senior in 1999, with the Associated Press selecting him to its second team, which also named him first-team All-Big 12. That season, he had 24 touchdown blocks and was in for 834 plays at guard and on special teams, the second most on the team. He received a medical redshirt for the 1997 season after a neck injury sidelined him following the second game of the season. He started 24 of 26 games in his CU career, grading out at 89 percent over his final two seasons. He was a third-team all-league performer as a junior.
He was a member of two bowl champion teams for the Buffaloes, as CU defeated Oregon 51-43 in the '98 Aloha Bowl and Boston College 62-28 in the '99 Insight.com Bowl. He was a large part of an offense that racked up 113 points and 920 yards on offense in the two wins.
A sociology major at Colorado, he was working toward completing his degree this summer, as he pursued his pro football career immediately after his eligibility expired.
He was born February 12, 1977 in Arcadia, Calif., and graduated from Arcadia High School where he earned honorable mention All-America honors in football. He earned his A.A. degree from Mt. San Antonio College in 1997, as he was a first-team JUCO All-American and was rated as the top junior college offensive lineman and the No. 4 overall JC performer. He is married to the former Jessica Marie.
