A transfer student from Laney College, Anderson played college football at Berkeley from 2011–2012 before beginning what would become a seven-year NFL career. An undrafted free agent signed by the Denver Broncos in 2013, by the 2014 season Anderson had been named to his first Pro Bowl. Anderson’s contributions helped lead the Broncos to a 24–10 Super Bowl 50 win over the Carolina Panthers, the first of two Super Bowl appearances.
Anderson announced his retirement from pro football in September, stating his plans to pursue a career in coaching. Today, he tweeted, he’ll be doing so at his alma mater.
Yo @CalFootball #GoBears let’s get to work thank you for the opportunity to help out with the O.
