Skyler Fulton is in his first year as the offensive graduate assistant, as he joined the Colorado staff in February 2009.  

Fulton, 27, comes to Colorado after a professional career that saw him have stints with the Indianapolis Colts, Minnesota Vikings and Seattle Seahawks in the NFL and one season in NFL Europe with the Amsterdam Admirals.  In 2006, he had 53 receptions for 992 yards and seven touchdowns for the Admirals while racking up six 100-yard receiving games.  Both his 992 yards and six 100-yard receiving games were Admirals' season records while the latter is also the NFL Europe record.  He was just 32 yards shy of the league receiving record and missed some action with a hamstring injury late in the season.  In 2007 he returned to the Admirals and had 49 receptions for 650 yards and five touchdowns. 

He graduated with a degree in elementary education in 2003 from Arizona State University, where he lettered four times in football and one in baseball between 2000 and 2003.  He began his career at Arizona State as a running back before moving to wide receiver his sophomore year.  He finished his Arizona State career with 99 receptions for 1,324 yards and 14 touchdowns, including a breakout senior year when he had 62 receptions for 901 yards and 10 touchdowns, enough to earn him honorable mention All-Pac 10 and ASU's offensive player of the year accolades.  His 62 receptions and 10 touchdowns were at the time the fourth-best season totals in Sun Devil history and both still rank in the top six.  He also earned first-team Academic All-District VII honors and was one of just 11 Division I-A players named to the AFCA Good Works Team for his commitment to community service.

Prior to returning to Arizona State for his senior season, he played baseball at Skatig Valley Junior College in Mt. Vernon, Wash., and was drafted in the 22nd round of the 2002 Major League Baseball draft by the New York Yankees.  He was also drafted in the 25th round of the 2000 MLB Draft by the New York Mets.

He was born June 17, 1982 in Olympia, Wash., and graduated from Capital High School in 2000 as a prep All-American in both football and baseball. He was named the player of the game as Capital won the state football championship his senior season.  He lettered four times in baseball and three in football and captained both teams his senior year and the baseball squad his junior year, as well.  He has one son, Jaden (3).
