Lee Calland

Lee Calland serves as the defensive ends coach after joining the staff in 2008 as the defensive back coach (safeties). Calland brings more than 30 years of coaching and playing experience.

Before joining the staff, Calland served as the defensive coordinator at Fort Valley State from 1997 – 2000. He helped lead the Wildcats to two NCAA Division II playoff appearances and in 1997, his defense was ranked first in the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SIAC).

In 1996, Calland coached the linebackers for the World Football League’s London Monarchs. Prior to his service with the Monarchs, Calland held coaching stints with Morehouse College, Southern University and Morris Brown College.

Calland played in the professional ranks for 10 years. He began his professional playing career as a defensive back with the notorious Purple People Eaters of the 1963 Minnesota Vikings. He was named to the All-Rookie Team at the end of the season.

After leaving the Vikings in 1966, Calland became a member of the Atlanta Falcons, spending three seasons before joining the 1969 Pittsburgh Steelers' Steel Curtain Defense. He later retired from the NFL in 1972 due to an injury.

Coach Calland is a 1963 graduate of the University of Louisville where he received a B.S. in History. He and his wife, Elvina, have three children and four grandchildren.
