SJSU's Biggest Recruit: Bryant Young
Super Bowl champ joining Spartans' coaching staff
NBC Bay Area first broke the story in late December -- and now it's official.
Four-time Pro Bowler and Super Bowl Champion Bryant Young will be introduced as San Jose State's new defensive line coach on Friday. Young agreed to join Mike MacIntyre's staff after turning down offers from Notre Dame (his alma matter) and Akron.
The former 49ers defensive tackle spent 14 seasons in the NFL, winning the Super Bowl after the 1994 season. He had 89.5 career sacks and has been brought up as a Hall of Fame candidate.
In January of 2008, he returned to Notre Dame as a graduate assistant. Bryant was also considering a job at Akron before choosing San Jose State.
