Two Football Players Transfer

Roberts

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -- Two players on the Tar Heel football team are no longer with the program, Inside Carolina has learned. Sophomore wide receiver Del Roberts and freshman cornerback Andre Coleman have decided to transfer. Neither saw the field during the 2005 season.

"It was just a matter of a better situation for both them and the team," a UNC spokesperson told Inside Carolina on Monday.

Coleman (pictured, right), redshirted last season, was a high school teammate of UNC linebacker Garrett White. He was named All-Dade County honorable mention as a senior in high school.

On the other hand, Roberts saw action as a true freshman in 2004, appearing in seven games before breaking his collarbone against Miami and missing the remainder of the season.

Before his injury, Roberts had proven himself a solid kick returner with seven runbacks for 152 yards (21.7 yards per return). As a receiver, he caught two passes for 27 yards.
