Coleman redshirted in 2007 and played in three games in 2008. He can play immediately and will have three years of eligibility with the Mocs. He left Tennessee because he felt he wasn't getting a fair opportunity to play.
The 6-foot-5, 210-pound Chattanooga native's only significant playing time came during Tennessee's 20-10 win at Vanderbilt on Nov. 22. He completed 4 of 8 passes for 21 yards and rushed seven times for 24 yards.
Coleman will play under first-year coach Russ Huesman, who replaced Rodney Allison after the Mocs finished 1-11 in 2008. The NCAA has banned Chattanooga from postseason play in 2009 because of poor Academic Progress Rate scores.
